3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Draft at the brewery. Chestnut brown body, clear with a fine white head. Crusty bread / toast malt in the nose with some grassy / herbal hops which show up as a strong green bitterness in the finish, out of balance bitterness even, which is strange to find in Franconia. Lingering bitterness, how did this become a staple here? Leafy green herbalness. Cookie and toast and grassy hops, a fun one for sure, though I’ve had bad versions which are more simplr cola-malt oriented but my friends seemed to enjoy more.

En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée cuivrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales grillées avec une pointe d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #3840)

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Hazelnut-laced toasted malts converse with spicy, wooden hops in this slender and refined Dunkel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam decorates the deep copper.
-The tiny but active bubbles and lean sugars craft a sturdy mouthfeel.
-The hoppy finish is quite bitter, more intense than the average Franconian brew.
-This and their Ungespundet Lagerbier are both brews I would drink pints of all the time if I could visit Schammelsdorf regularly.

Koelschtrinker (12665) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Malzig herber, etwas erdiger Antrunk, bodenständig. Recht würzig, was einzig auf das Malz abzielt. Gelungen, sehr süffig, der Hopfen ist hintergründig präsent. Gut! 9/11/11/10//11

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Golden-brown. Hoppy liquid bread aroma. Toasty and complex with lemony hops....you’d think those wouldn’t work together but they did here. Tasty example.

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2009
Draught@Abseits. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is earth, malts, rather yeast and also has some mild mouldy hints. Flavour is very citrusy and then it has quite much the same notes as in the aroma.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Dark amber with thick white head. Nice worty aroma. The palate is juicy and the flavors are nothing more than a totally tasty liquid bread and bread crust experience. Very nice.

omhper (21283) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown, minimal head. Roasty metallic nose. Medium sweet and lightly toasty with rounded mouthfeel. Finishes with metal and blood. A bit too much surface and too little content, more in line with American brewpubs than Franconian.
