4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught half-liter at Franconian Bierfest Nürnberg, June 2013: Hazy pale golden. Fluffy, creamy, fully sustained white head. Elegant nose of lemon oil, wildflower honey, canydish yeast, new-mown hay, lemongrass and a perfect touch of sulfurous rusticity. Firm and snug carbonation. Quite juicy and supple, initially, with a pineapple marmalade hoppiness laced with stiff minerals. Dry pils malt flavors proceed with finesse, lending a refined tandem of fresh cracker and new-mown hay. Rustic mouth-filling yeast accentuates the snappy minerals. Sharp and zestful lemongrass dries out the body as the deeply spicy hops ooze with flowery and candyish lemon-tinged oils. Mineralic pizazz precedes succulent honeydew melon juices and wildflower honey which lend yet another layer of intrigue and artfulness. Finishes yeasty yet unobtrusively so, and squeaky clean with a remarkably vibrant fusion of herbaceous hops and weightless but well-textured new-mown-hay pils malt. Well, all I can say is that repeat glasses were in order after first getting my lips around the glass of this fine nectar. A lip-smacking, mineral-rich kellerbier featuring stunningly polished hops and adeptly extracted, finespun malt. It’s the "discovery" of beers like this that warrant repeat trips to Franconia.
