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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre bottle, poured into oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden, clear, large head, moderate retention, lively looking. S: Saaz hop, lots of hay. T: Strong hints of rye and sour dough, gave way to a malty sweetness which gave it a good balance. M: Light body, moderate carbonation. O: A great example of a beer from a small Upper Franconian brewpub. So easy to throw down in large quantities with the monster sized Schnitzels they serve.

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.

croc at the brewery. vibrant dry grass nose with pungent noble hops liveliness. nose and flavor of honey cracker malt is enjoyable. smooth and creamy with prickly hop acid and light apple juice flavor, but overall it’s delicious and genuine. the owner’s son trained under Ganstaller at Beck-Brau, and the result is one of the better vollbier’s in the area.

Draught at the brewpub. Mild bready aroma, a little sweet and spicy from the hops. Looks clear yellow in the mug. The flavour is sweet, bready, slightly vinous. Mild bitterness. Tastes a little stronger ABV than your average lager.

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.
