pivnizub (9166) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle: Dark amber coloured, thin lacing white foamy froth; caramel, malts, floral hoppiness in the nose; initial sweet maltiness becomes drier: mild bitter flavour and slightly dry, bitter-malty finish with traces of chocolate; extremely mild. A nice, quite malt-accented Franconian Landbier.

Rune (9064) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at Bierothek in Bamberg. Poured a clear golden-brown coloured body. Lasting, fair lacing, white head. Smell and taste of pale and brown caramel malts. Hints of cardboard towards the ending. Has not got so much to offer (Grand tasting at the balcony, Fässla, Bamberg 12.10.2014).

shrubber85 (8748) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Bottle - Sour rye aroma. Medium brown in color. Great flavor of rye malt with next to no bitterness. A very good beer.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2008
(bottle, nowadays just labeled as Lager) Clear, mahogany colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet roasted malty aroma with distinctive notes of chocolate, toffee and a light herbal hoppy spots. Sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Roast-malty taste with caramel and milk chocolate; sweet and light-bitter roasty finish with a lasting aftertaste. Very good Dunkel (28.07.08).

3fourths (8495) - 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.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 Any first impressions?
-A sumptuous head stands atop the translucent amber/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.

Quack-Duck (8383) - 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.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle sample at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. As Krug-Bräu Lager. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, graininess, vegetal notes and a bit of toast. Sweetish flavor, malty, with caramel, toast, a vegetal note, and a drier and slightly bitterish finish. Rather light-bodied.

Fin (8172) - 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
