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.

faroeviking (10284) - 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) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
Draught. Dark golden with smallish head. Biscuity malts, dry, somewhat aged flavor. In Bamberg this didn’t impress.

MoritzF (9094) - 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 (6236) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
On tap, served by Bjørn Hansen, "the crazy Dane from Gentofte" (more about him: see "Hansen EF-Domstols Øl"), 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 Øl). 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?

hayduke (4444) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Got this one in Erfert. Rich amber color with small head. Very malty. I sniiffed out some spices, and a little bit of smoke. It came as advertized...the smoke is there but it is subtle. Very smooth palate. Nothing at all wrong with it but it was not remarkable.

MartinT (8957) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Impressions from the dining room:
-Slim foam tops the light copper clarity.
-Low smoke levels dwell in a really clean caramel maltiness.
-Some peaches diversify the malty sweetness, but can’t create much interest.
-A silky mouthfeel is nonetheless built, perhaps even slippery.
-Finishes unidimensionally, with easy sweetness and a thought of earthy smoke.

From the bottle at Café Abseits, Bamberg.
