3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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

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.

Draft @ brewpub. Copper color beer with rocky beige head. Aroma is mellow Frankenbier with lots of bready malt. Palate is clean, dry, smooth and quaffable. Low carbo. Fruity entry in the flavors and an excellent brisk hoppy finish. Tastes much hoppier than it smells. Bright and earthy, bready and hoppy all at same time. Incredibly balanced and delicious. Goes down so easy!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mug at the brewery in Giesfeld. Nose of sweet wort, caramel, maple and grains. Flavor is bright and fresh, tastes like unfermented wort and honey with a little grassy hop note. Fresh, wet, green, etc... at the same time, though, it resembles honey, wet malt and dry wood. Good beer with a nice medium bitterness level.

Tap, at the brewpub July 2005. Amber bronze, thin white head and gentle condition. Pleasant sweet toffee and earthy hops in the nose, good mix of caramel and bitter hop in the mouth with some background chalkiness and a dry roasted finish with lingering hop bitterness.
