Half litre bottle. Bronze colour, clear, fair bit of foam. Not too much of an aroma. Bittersweet corky taste. Fairly light tasting Keller/zwickel. Has some characteristics of a helles. Decent but not world class.

Brass color, lazy bubbles.
Freshly baked bread, straw, pleasant bitter hops. Fine nuances, long lingering hoppy tail. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, MHD 19.11.2011. Nose is juicy citrus with a lemony bent and some great leafy/grassy tones. Beautiful look, a mix of copper and mahogany toward the top, supports a lacing and frothy rocky white head. Light-bodied, low sweetness and very low bitterness, with a nice resolution toward toasted bread crusts. Citrus still there in the middle with a touch of apple, faint caramel toward the back. Just enough hop bristle (and a hint a resin) to keep things interesting. Smooth with a light acidity. Cheers!

Bottle, had this as Huppendorfer Zwergla. Nose is sweet and lightly grassy with toffee and brown sugar. Copper-mahogany pour with a noisy eggshell head. Taste is sweet with caramel and faint fruit, light chocolate and nice waves of toast and nuts. Light body has a little condensed air and a little rubbery. Just a touch of butterscotch is nice here. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at their brewpub.
Almost no head. Light amber color.
The aroma has mostly caramell malts.
The taste is nice caramell malty with residual sweetness but to small bitterness to balance it. Easy to drink but to sweet to drink in any larger amounts.

2011-02-13, draught at Café Abseits, Bamberg, 7-3-8-3-15=35
Amber color; small creamy head. The aroma is light, but nice malt and delicate hop. The flavor is well malted, excellent, although dry; correct bitterness; the final is a bit weak, but sweetish. Interesting.
2010-05-19, bottle at Plan B, 5-3-5-2-11=26
Hazy blond color. The aroma is not very rich; there is hay, cereals, and just light good malt, very light honey. Simple flavor, weak, to much papery, dry but with saccharin sweetness. Low bitterness. Easy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear golden lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. The nose furnishes cereal grains and spicy, musky eastern European hops. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and active carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced and provides cereal grains, sourdough bread and spicy hops. Finishes crisp and fairly clean, but a touch grassy. Refreshing on a hot Florida day, but overall this one is basically a Franconian lawnmower beer. Carefully and cleanly brewed, but a lawnmower beer nonetheless. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible!
