3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off slightly sweet, turns quite bitter. Nutty, slightly sugary, but balanced by the hops.

Bottled (BB 01/2010)
Thanks bierkoning, Edo!
Golden, light amber color, decent white head. A honeyish malty and grainy nose. Medium-bodied. Good malty backbone. Finish and aftertaste is hoppy with hints of metal. No diacetyl in my bottle. Solid Bavarian helles-zwickel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. An orange-amber beer with a thick creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of caramel and straw. The flavor is sweet with light notes of caramel, leading to a finish with light notes of both hops and bitterness. The mouthfeel was quite flat. Served too cold for my liking - early in the day.

(draught at the brewpub & bottle at home) Clear, amber colour with a short, slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet, well-balanced fruity malty and herbal hoppy nose. Malt-accented taste with a nice burnt malt and hoppy bitterness, light to medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel; moderately dry, bitter-sweet finish with a good dose of herbal hops. Quaffable Franconian Lager.

(On tap) Beautiful, clear, dark amber with a nice, off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish aroma. Medium body with pleasant, lightly caramalized malt accents - perhaps even a touch of honey? Distinct hoppy finish. Nice one. 101106

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2009 Brewery tap. Slight soapy, malty aroma. Full bodied, almost thick and sweet. Slight bitter finish. The emphasis is on the malt and, as the Germans call it vollmündigkeit (thickness in the mouth).
Re-rate (again brewery tap) Malty aroma with a hint of rubber, malty flavor with a hint of licorice. Some late hopbitterness, especially in the aftertaste.
During a visit in september 2009 the beer had a lot of diacetyl.
