Gravity pour at the brewery. Aroma is really grainy, neutral, light earthy notes, nutty aromas, toasted malt - cleanest kellerbier yet, but not necessarily in a good way, lacks a bit of character, pretty neutral. Taste is grainy, herbal tea-like flavors. Light-medium body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking.

What a masterpiece! I’m drinking this beer @macchesiete for the Frankenfest. Really nice beer. Fruity with an orange colour it’s easy to drink with a malt aftertaste. Very good!

18/03/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Bevuta al FrankenFest. Dorata limpida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente. Al naso delicati sentori di malto, pane, discreta presenza di luppolo. In bocca malto, pane, cereali, luppolo nel finale. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Esile e facile da bere, equilibrata, fresca, buonissima!

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2014
(live at the Brauereigasthof) Hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Particularly grainy malty aroma with very present herbal hoppy notes. Well-rounded malt- and hops-character with grainy spots and a whiff of barnyard in he positive sense; dry and lasting herbal hoppy finish. Very pleasant. 26.I.14

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
On tap at the brewery in Geisfeld. It’s golden, cold and quite hoppy and very decent. Pretty hoppy in fact, some toffee. Good.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
On tap at the brewery Gasthof, 19 July 2012. Amber coloured with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of tartish hedgerow fruit, a hint of chocolate powder and leafy hops. Flavour was malty, with more fruit, a touch of yeasty and flinty edge, leading to a soft finish. Very drinkable and a bargain at less than 2 euros.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Herbal, spicy hops surround bready malts and their subtle toastiness before taking this rustic lager into surprisingly bitter territories.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the krug, which later reveals an amber-hued brew.
-The aroma is not bold enough to match the poignant hop finish.
-Light caramelization is not necessarily harmonious with the hop signature.
-An earthy touch appears in the beautifully hoppy finish.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Wenig herber Antrunk, absolut mild. Der Hopfen ist absolut verwässert, ersetzt sich zum Mittelteil ein. Wenig nussig, aufgrund der Wässrigkeit legit sich dies recht schnell. Wegen der vorherrschenden Milde eher langweilig, die Würzigkeit gibt zu wenig herb, obwohl die Grundtöne vielversprechend sind. Herb-wässriger Abgang. 8/7/8/8//8

Clear golden with a tiny white head. Malty aroma with hints of hops. Flavour had malt, grassy hops and straw. Finished somewhat dry and bitter.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Ceramic mug. Airy head. Orangey-brown colour. Minerally, hoppy nose. Hoppy and minerally but with more dark malt than comparably hoppy Franconian country beers. Pretty refreshing and the caramelly, earthy dark malts add an element of warmth.
