Unsere Braukünste besitzen eine lange Tradition und ziehen selbst die Bevölkerung aus dem Bayreuther und Nürnberger Raum an. Brauer Hans Herold verwendet nur ganze Hopfendolden von Aromasorten aus der Hallertau. Das Malz stammt aus heimischer Gegend und verleiht dem Beck’n Bier seine typisch kräftige Farbe. Jährlich werden etwa 2000 Hektoliter gebraut. Die Brauerei ist in den vergangenen zehn Jahren von Grund auf erneuert worden. Unverändert dagegen bleibt das Rezept des edlen Bieres.

bierkoning (11544) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2004
Only beer from this Brauerei Gasthof. Tap. Malty aroma and flavor. Some caramel and licorice. Fairly low on carbon. Just a bit of rest sweetness. Lovely beer, albeit not entirely clean.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle... Crystal clear, deep amber lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. Lightly malty, moderately herbal aroma promises toffee, biscuit and sod. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Mainly sweet toffee and honey with subtle, mineral bitterness. Toffee-sweet finish. Thanks to bierkoning for providing the bottle!

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
It’s dark amber with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted bread, malt, light caramel, and the finish is dry. It’s refreshing and yet soft.

pivnizub (9531) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2006
Bottle: Amber coloured, lively carbonation, stable fluffy head; sweet malt, roast malt, honey and fresh aromatic hops in the aroma; sweet (malty) and distinctive bitter flavour, rather fizzy mouthfeel; well balanced, first malty sweet, later dry bitter hoppy finish. A very tasty brew !

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle best by January 2015. Clear rust colored body with a thin ring of a white head. Oxidized amber malt aroma is metal and cardboard with red apple skin and cinnamon candies. Light body, semi-sweet with low bitterness in a watery, thin finish. Starchy and papery more than anything.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This dry and bubbly brew shares very mild caramel upon warming alongside faint herbal hops and mineral angles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear dark amber-brown.
-Although the color is relatively dark, there are next to no dark malt flavors appearing in the flavor profile.
-This flavor profile is super clean, but also shy and forgettable.
-Mouthfeel is lean, soft and very drinkable.
