Fruity aroma with a malty aftertaste. Nice head with a bit of body as it goes down. Great with food.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Reddish-brown colour. Very toasty aroma - quite appetizing with a hint of chocolate. Metallic on the palate a bit, with hints of chocolate and light toastiness. Complex, nice lager.

Draft at brewery. Served in a krug, and appears as dark golden. This and the lager were both fabulous and shared many elements in common. Both were liquid bread and balanced, and both had big juicy palates. I found the märzen to have a sweeter, fruitier malt background versus the intense toastiness of the lager but both had a similarly delicious burnt breadcrust flavor. Absolutely impressive.

Spina @ Scurreria. Ambrata chiara con schiuma fine è persistente. Un pelo più dolce e biscottata della lager.

KyotoLefty (9404) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Glowing dark orange with a low head. A bit darker than the lagerbier. Clear. Caramel and peach in the nose, a touch of smoke. Flavor is caramel, rye bread, peaches. Smooth and light yet full bodied. Very bitter and herbal like the lager, though not as much so.

bartlebier (3499) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2016
50cl bottle bb04/2016 at Pelikan, Bamberg on St Patrick’s Day. Bref: Rich fruit marmelade-slathered breadcrust (Landbrot, of course) on just the right amount of lager octanes to be inbibed in perfect harmony with a chilly spring evening. One of many instances of Franconian dry nectar.

pivnizub (10183) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2009
Draught: Seems to be deep golden, medium-sized, lacy white head, solid sweet-malty and delicate hoppy nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, smooth; juicy malt, indeed, in the lingering sweet-bitter finish. Knoblach is good........
Earlier Rating: 8/21/2005 Total Score: 3.4
Bottle (Vroni’s Bamberg) Light amber coloured, thin, lasting off-white firm head; fruity (honey, plums) and malty aroma, combined with some herbal hoppiness, some smoky or wooden notes ?!?!? Soft, sweetish, fruity beginning; mild bitter-sweet flavour; dry, bitter and "barrique-like" aftertaste, long lasting. A very good and very unusual example of a franconian Lager !

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Seems to be clear dark golden in the mug. Small white head. Good malty flavour, not so bitter. On the malty side and very pleasant.

Frankenfest 2016, Rome. Richer gold, cream. Rich funk malt. Robust round malt. Robust cereal. Very lovely malt body, a touch of smoky malt. Lovely beer.
