Maria (10191) - Thisted, - MAY 13, 2010
It’s medium golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, clover-flower and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, spicy hops, bread, flower, caramel and the finish is dry with notes of straw.

downender (7050) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle. Amber in colour, with a tight, off-white, head. Crisp, almost savoury, malt aroma. Flavour was also malty with some accompanying hedgerow fruit and gently bitter finish. Good.

kappldav123 (5512) - GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
Had this as Hetzel Frauendorfer Vollbier. Thanks to kevnic2008 for that one. Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass zippy, deep golden, nice head. Starts fine malty, spicy, light sourish-fruity background with notes of lemon. Finish still mild but not washy. Well balanced and quite drinkable. Nice!

Idiosynkrasie (5026) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, barely white head. Strawy, grassy, tart-ish aroma. Taste is minimally sweet malty, a touch of caramel, some husk, hints of protein; slightly watery. Anaemic, faint - nothing wrong, needs simply more intensity.

Moravius (868) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Schönes Goldbraun, klar. - Geruch mild würzig-malzig, schwache Toastnoten. - Antrunk mild karamelmalzig-würzig mit schwachen fruchtigen Noten. Durchschnittlich rezent, etwas dünn. Im Abgang mild hopfenwürzig, etwas karamelsüß aber blaß, ohne richtige Hopfenaromen und mit nur schwacher, stumpfer Malzbittere. - Blasses, zu schwach gehopftes und wenig süffiges Frankenlager ohne Pep. Muß nicht sein.

Benzai (10632) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle [thanks to bierkoning] @ home. Clear rusty golden color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is malts, grains, sweetish grains, slightly wort. Taste malts, again sweetish grains, a hint of smoke. Quite sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Average body, medium carbonation.

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, husks), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clunky, mediocre.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle purchased at the brewery, consumed in Nov, 2013: Amber gold. Thin, but tight, broken white head. Decent nose of almond nuttiness and spent tea-leaf maltiness. Hint of minerals, mold, DMS and cotton. Foamy, fuzzy carbonation. Nutty pecan skin flavors yield to a metallic tingle. Not much malt richness or complexity. Spruce tip whispers of hops unite with a splash of ripe fruity esters and sharp malty dryness. Canydish yeast presence and peppery hops in there, as well. Finishes earthily malty but drab and plain, with a stiff kiss of fennel seed hops and pecan skin leatheriness adorned with a delicate toffeelike sweetness. A humdrum example that fails to do anything out of the ordinary. Plays it pretty safe, and overall it’s a bit unclean, doughy and straightforward. I want character when I drink in Franconia!

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
Rating from 21.1.2008: Im Geruch frisch-malzig, hopfenaromatisch. -- Geschmack:auch frisch-malzig mit einer leichten Röstmalznote, sehr süffig-vollmundig, schöner langer, leicht-süßlicher Röstmalzabgang. Könnte für meinen Geschmack einen Tick "trockener" sein.
Trotzdem sehr schönes Bier!! --> 13.05
