3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Sandkerwa. Beige head is thick, very thick, can feel it in my mouth. the color is copper. Aroma is mild, bready with toffee. The palate is thick, smooth. Very good, dry Franconian style festbier, a far cry from the sweeter Munchen ones. Soft gentle flavors with very dry hoppy finish that has lots of wood and grain husks. Total Franconia.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Barrel @ Sandkerwa. Ceramic mug. Thick head. Nice caramelly aroma - the thick head actually covers up some of the nose. Clean, crisp, hoppy beer with only a hint of that caramel. Very dry, hoppy, uberfranken take on the festbier concept.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, from the brewery) Clear golden colour with a big foamy and slowly lacing white head. Slightly dusty and sweet malty aroma with dense notes of peppery spice and herbal hops. Sweet flavour, medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Soft malty taste, well-bound aromatic hops; medium-dry and lasting finish with a moderate bitterness. This one hasn´t an overpowering distinctive taste, but it is very elegant and balanced: a silent hero.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap (in the brewry garden): Deep golden coloured, lacing off-white fluffy head, quite stable; sweet malty, but also distictive hoppy aroma; starting sweetish, later distinctive bitter taste, medium to full bodied;drier than the Märzen. Well done, well rounded.........
