3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from brewery. Pours darker than expected. A nice amber colored beer with thick white head and grandma lacing. Excellent bready aromas with plenty of mouthwatering floral hops. It’s delicious! Flavors are unexpectedly better than the aromas with whole grain pasta nuttiness and a dry finish to boot.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 draft at Goldener Lowe in Drugendorf
medium-dark brown body, lightly hazed, mostly white head. very faint nose of washed out toasted grains and mild dry cocoa powder with a small touch of caramelized sugar / toffee. lightly doughy with low carbonation leaves the body and texture a bit watery, and at times it seems flavorless.
Gravity barrel at FrankenBierFest in Roma, March 2015. Lightly hazed rusty amber brown with a fine white head. Malty / toasty, a little apple-like, highly minerallic, light to moderate sweetness, medium bitterness, lots of malt richness in the way of red delicious apple and baked bread. Flowers and herb hoppiness, grassy noble in character. The texture is lightly syrupy and rich and savory. Good malt caramelization, a little smoky in the way of steinbeer actually. 7/4/7/4/15

Hops and wood in the aroma. Sweet, malty taste. Very fruity (pear, mango). Dusty and woody. Very nice beer from a small village brewery.

Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, dark amber appearance with a cream colored head. Toasty malty, cracker, somewhat husky, light caramel aroma. A bit earthy, fairly floral and herbal hoppy, lightly woody, toasty caramel malty flavor. Not bad.

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..........
