3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bronzed peach. Scattered off-white foam. Unappealing gummy candy aromas prevail over lesser notes of vanilla cake, pecan, and breadcrust. Unpleasant hint of grape taffy and medicine, as well. Firm carbonation. Somewhat fuzzy. Flimsy body. Initially sweet and semi-tacky with a sharp alcohol embrace. Honey-drizzled biscuits dovetail with a crisper nuttiness, though the malt soon relinquishes much of its sturdiness to a wet-paper and damp hay limpness. Some appetizing hop spice does exude, as does a splash of sweetish nectar, though the hoppy brightness is overly subdued and thus fails to counteract the sugars. Meanwhile, grape candy continually deposits its artificial-tasting residue on the palate. Finishes faintly cookielike with a lively aniseedy spiciness, though predominantly flabby with a wet paper lifelessness. Late emergence of flowery hop spice salvages the finish as it links up with a stiff Munich crackle, though the grapey-ness is here to stay. Sort of a mixed bag. On one hand, it does occasionally showcase some delightful crisp-edged malt refinement reminiscent of cookie, breadcrust, pecan, etc., yet on the other hand, there is a pervasive gummy candy quality and even a touch of banana that really wreak havoc on the overall luster. A few adjustments here and there and this would be pretty solid, but far from Franconia’s best.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Heller Bernsteinton mit wenig cremigen Schaum. Verhalten blumiges Malz im Aroma. Im Antrunk vollmundig und fest. Geschmacklich wiederum malzig und nur leicht würzig. Der Alkohol nimmt nie Überhand. Der Hopfen im Abgang könnte etwas mehr anziehen. Dafür, dass ich kein Bockbier-Anhänger bin, ist dieser Krug gut trinkbar!
