3fourths (8215) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Draft at Herrmann Keller in Ampferbach. A fairly typical kellerbier for Franconia: grassy, nectary, lemon oil hops with quiet / neutral pale malt sweetness. More banana / fruit esters than most, but still quiet enough to let the hops drive the experience. Becomes a tad starchy and grainy after a while, and the grain husk character swells about halfway through the glass, as does some dish soap and detergent dirtiness. Still these flaws are minor and the beer as a whole is drinkable, but certainly nothing special to seek out, though it may vary from batch to batch as much as anyone.

TAR (2517) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draught at Herrmann Keller in June 2013: Color indeterminable (served in steinkrug). Slightly soapy and vegetal nose is further marred by matchsticks and some fusel alcohol. Underlying note of pecan maltiness and flowers. Scant carbonation. Flimsy body. Touch of minerals paves the way for a sharp grassy bitterness and splash of fruitiness. Malt is curiously muted and poorly defined, with merely a trace of breadcrust poking through the esters. Alcohol is lousily cloaked. Hops yield an unrefined salty, spent tea-leaf bitterness which is exacerbated by a soapy astringency and a limp, sugary body. The one-dimensionally grassy finish gains no support from the malt or any bright hop flavors. Chemical notes abound in this dull kellerbier. Just couldn’t get into this as much as Mikey. Their Hefe Weissbier (bottle), on the other hand, was exceptionally tasty, so I didn’t spend a whole of of time with this.

Thanks to Erlangernick. Brown gold colour with slight haze and thin beige head. Yep that’s good. Good mlat and then good biting hop finish. Some toast, bit fizzy. Very drinkable, I could see me drinking this all day. Just balanced and drinkable.
