3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Fränkisches Bierfest Nürnberg.
Clear chestnut brown with a large off-white head.
Toasty, nutty, doughy, bready, inviting aroma.
Okay so there’s some wet dog hair but that’s probably just me.
Medium body and dry.
Toasty, nutty dark cara malts; crunchy.
Faint just-roasted dark malt.
Fantastically frothy and vivid in the mouth.
Presence, buddy.

Quack-Duck (7773) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2009
5l mini cask from Bierzwerg Clear brown colour with a golden glow, large and creamy beige head. Medium-bodied with a solid malty base, roasted malts, caramel, oak wood, dust, a touch of smoke and damp cellar favours are detectable. Fine finish with a woody-sour touch.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A sumptuous head stands atop the translucent bronze/brown, drawing some nifty lacing.
-Dark chocolate and grassy hops stimulate the nostrils.
-The clean, nutty, chocolatey maltiness is like a Franconian take on English Brown Ales.
-The finishing, soft wooden hop bitterness is intelligently linked to dark chocolate sweetness.

What if you dig deeper?
-A wonderfully smooth body is developed by the superbly extracted maltiness; what else could you expect from the wise Franconians?
-Dry wood surfaces in the aroma.
-The bready, toasted malt complexity is fascinating.
-Close to a dunkel in style, but this is just another Franconian lager beauty.

Bottle; best before November ’06.

Fin (7265) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle at Son of Sid Brewery, The Chequers, Little Gransden, Cambs’ 1st Beer Festival on 02-10-09 Pours conker brown, its pretty clear and there is a white head. The aroma is a mostly malty but there is a touch of smokiness with just a hint of meatiness. Its soft in the mouth, even a little bit of a perfumey feel, the maltiness shows again, tasting stronger that it actually is with a good malty backbone. Nice stuff. A8 A4 F7 P3 Ov14 3.6

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle from Quinns.
Copper coloured with a decent white head. Just about the darkest thing I’ve ever seen called a lager. Rather sickly malt with a little too much grainy character. Faint hops and cardboard in the finish. Uneventful but drinkable.

motelpogo (6296) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 19, 2007
bottle at pils bar franco in erlangen. clear mahogany with no trace of sediment and a faint white head. bizarre aroma of rexona, avocado, mango nectar, pistachio-flavoured ice cream and the abbatoir town of casino. quite a rough flavour with some caramel and a prickly herbaceous quality. very drinkable
