COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crystal-clear mountain spring water and a touch of roasted malt give this beer its pristine and unforgettable flavour. Craft-brewed from a traditional recipe, Felsentrunk is amber in colour, spiced with a hint of smoke, a tribute to the art of brewing in the Franconia region of Bavaria.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2007
bottled. copperish golden syrup colour with a fine white head and no haze at all. sweet aroma of molasses, raisin toast. firm-bodied, almost to the point of stickiness. some soft mint, die weisse chocolate, thorough dryness with some bitterness verging on the metallic. i had no idea that this was meant to be a smoked beer and i didnt notice any real smoked character so it goes to show that i normally just percieve whatever flavours im told to

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2007
Bottle: Amber coloured, bigger off-white head; sweet malt (with a touch of roasted malt) in the aroma and a tinge of hops, some "smoked" illusions from very far away; moderate sweet flavour, medium bodied; sweet-malty finish with a mild, but detectable smoked touch. A gentle, well balanced smoked beer..........

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 20, 2007
Bottle. Amberish colour. Bit sweet smoky and malty aroma. Flavour is caramellic, good smokiness, malty and little bit fruity. A good tasting smoky brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear amber with an off-white head leaving a discreet lacework. Soft aroma of caramel. Medium body with a solid, lightly roasted malt base and then a fairly hoppy finish. The smokiness is only a discreet whiff. More like a Landbier really. 251206

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle (I assume?) from Cafe Abseitz in Bamberg. Rich and full-bodied with some malt and fruit flavours, but not very smokey though. Almost too subtle so as to be annoying, like the trace of cordial left over in a glass of water. Unimpressive finish.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
Draught. Dark golden with smallish head. Biscuity malts, dry, somewhat aged flavor. In Bamberg this didnt impress.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2006
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a short, not very persistent, slightly off-white foamy head. Light-sweet toast-malty, slightly fruity aroma with a touch of caramel and faint smoky notes. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light body, smooth carbonation. Aromatic toast-malty taste with a light fruity and even lighter smoke presence in the background; moderately dry malty, light bitter finish with faint notes of hops. Decent Landbier with a subtle smokiness that could be more intense for my kind of taste.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
On tap, served by Bjrn Hansen, "the crazy Dane from Gentofte" (more about him: see "Hansen EF-Domstols l"), at Gladmatfestivalen, Stavanger, as "Hartmann Felsentrunk Landbier". The Hansen 0.5 liter glass (quite good looking) was included in the rather steep price of the beer! The original Hartmann Felsentrunk Landbier swingtop bottle was exhibited on the counter, and when I asked for it, he claimed that this was the beer he actually had on tap. (He also had the paler EF-Domstols l). The colour was right, amber with a moderate head, but I did not get the faintest hint of smoke! The beer looked, smelled and tasted like a standard Danish "Classic". Moderate hops and some caramel malts in both aroma and flavour. OKish, but in no way remarkable.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with a medium white head. Malty, light hay aroma and a sweet malty, dry, hoppy taste. Medium body with a dry finish.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2006
Amber colour with a small off white head. Malty, grainy aroma with a caramel sweetness and a vague note of hay. Malty, light toffee sweet flavor with a light dry and sweet finish. Smoke?
