2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 Draught at the brewpub. The aroma seems a little smoky, but I cannot trace it in the flavour. Hazy brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour has a slightly rough bitterness. Not as malty as I expected from the colour. Quite boring. 5 3 5 3 11
Bottle, 4.9% bought at the brewery. Strangely rough aroma, a little unpleasant. Clear grey amber colour. Small off-white head. The flavour has some caramelly malt, OK sweetness. The finish leaves a bit of rubber on the palate. 5 3 6 3 12

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light coppery colored, little white head. Sweet-chocolaty aroma with some earthy-cardboardy zwickel tones, some butter here too. Nice aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor has also this chocolaty dryness and hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste dries strongly. Good complex brew.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Bayerishe Anstich) at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy dark bronze colour, rocky head. Buttery malt aroma with a whiff of vegetables. Medium sweet with soft, well rounded mouthfeel. Salty finish with grassy bitterness. A mild and nicely malty very drinkable beer, but the vegetables in the nose distracts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught (in the brewery yard): Copper coloured, huge, lasting off-white head; fine herbal hoppy aroma; starts malty, malty flavour also, becoming more and more bitter towards the finish; quite fizzy, ligjt bodied, very creamy texture. A very good example of a typical franconian Lager; worth a detour..........
