Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2009
Golden brown. Toasty nose with light toffee notes and a very subtle spiciness. Tasty but dry palate. Hints of chocolate and light cocoa. A little thin in the finish, as many Franconian darks are.

Beerbarella (343) - - OCT 1, 2012
500ml bottle. Spicy, mild, almost neutral taste and yet spicy. Interesting. Not bad.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Couleur ambrée tirant vers le rouge, mousse blanche laissant un fin cerceau sur le rebord du verre. Arômes de cire à crayon, de poivre et de légumes verts, concombres, courges…, puis de caramel et de grains grillés. Flaveurs de grains, de minéraux et de houblons verts, Bon niveau d’amertume en finale. Bouteille, Landbierparadies, voyage Europe 2005

MartinT (8135) - 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.

Bottles.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Draft @ Franconian beer festival. Deep dark brown with red tint. Thick white head. Great fresh malty aroma. Dry chalky mouthfeel. Moderately husky flavors are nice and dry. Solid, very nice.

blutt59 (6036) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011
bottle, via trade with erlangernick, pours a dark almond color with big lacy foam, nutty roasted pumpkin seed aroma, tasty flavor of bright hoppy minerals and nutty roast, smooth bitter finish

gunnar (5686) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle from Fränkische Botschaft, Berlin. Pours clear dark amber with a small creamy light tanned head. Aroma is good malty, dark bread, caramel and grassy hops. Taste is also malty, full of hayish notes with a light roasty feel at the end, not bad at all.

3fourths (8238) - 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.

Beautiful amber color with medium persistent head. Rich aroma of malts. Taste of malts and caramel. Hoppy bitter aftertaste

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Malzig-süßlicher Antrunk. Etwas flach, aber dennoch vollmundig. Wie ein Malzbier ohne Zucker. Der Hauptteil ist schön malzig-röstmalzig-süßlch. Im Nachgeschmack schön herb-malzig mit sehr angenehmer Herbe und Röstmalzaroma. Nur die Süße ist etwas unpassend-Malzbierähnlich. 12/11/12/12
