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.

A wonderful amber "Landbeer". A perfect balance of malt and hop!! a typical beer from the "fränkischen schweiz". It’s one of my favorite beers! You must taste it

Bierkrug (2132) - - NOV 4, 2011
500 ml bottle in Germany with much thanks to Bottleman. Pours a copper color with a thick almost tan head. Aroma is caramel, metal and sweet overripe fruit. Taste is first grains, cream, malt and metal. Ends ever so slightly bitter. Palate is light and smooth. A really nice piece of handwork.

pivnizub (9197) - 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 !

Marheb (3037) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Un corps assez filiforme et croustillant qui cache des notes de biscuit à la mélasse, miettes de rôtie et tire d’érable.

MartinT (8492) - 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.

On tap at the brewpub.

0.5 l bottle (Buchenbacher Beckn Bier Vollbier 4.6 %). Copper color with good head. Sweetish, malty, resiny and biscuity aroma. Malty, biscuity, woody and resiny flavor. Pleasant, odd resiny-piney note.
