3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewery. Served in the krug so hard to see but has a characteristic long-lasting head. Smells great, a little yeasty, a little sweet, and very fresh. Cask ale-like palate with low carbonation. Dry finish after fresh juicy grain body. Good liquid fare. Totally Franconian.

bottle, mit Dank an pivnizub! Clear golden colour, mid-sized creamy white head. Aromatic herbal-hoppy nose. Medium-bodied, lovely malt flavours combined with fine aromatic hops. Bitter-sweet, with a grassy-resiny hop profile and a lingering finish. This beer has a lovely rural character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(from the tap at the brewpub) Clear, golden colour with a dense, medium-sized foamy white head. Slightly dusty and sweet pale malt aroma with fresh herbal, nettle-like hops. Moderately bitter flavour with a light balancing malty sweetness; good herbal hops profile; light to medium bodied with a soft and mellow, well-matured mouthfeel; malt-accented, slightly hoppy finish. Moreish brew with a rural touch (10.02.08).

Bottle at ronnies. Unfiltered and quite hazy. Aroma is sweetish pale malts with grainy notes. Taste is similar on the sweet side of balanced but very drinkable indeed.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled - Pigs Ear BF. A straw coloured beer with a slight orange hue. The aroma is sadly, badly tainted by diacetyl. The taste has orangey fruity hoppy notes with some toffee malts also. Toasty and quite tasty.
