bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Draught at the restaurant/guest house opposite what appears to be a far from active brewery building. Looking through it’s windows and walking around the outbuildings, I could see no evidence of recent brewing activity. Brewing equipment was visible through the front windows, in a condition of utter filth; under what looked like years worth of dust and grime. The waitress at the restaurant assured us that their beer was still brewed in the original brewery building, but this would not have been the first place that I have visited in the this area that was somewhat economical with the truth concerning their ’house beer.’ As for the ’product’ : what I tried was very poor. Served in a ceramic mug, it was difficult to view, but had no head and very little carbonation. The taste was watery minerals and the aroma slightly sulphurous. Not good.

TAR (2490) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2013
Draught at Brauerei Martin in Nov. 2012: Peachy golden. Persistent creamy head. Bright nose showcases vivid notes of toasty Munich along with floral nectar, honey-drizzled hay, and a smidgeon of marmalade and alcohol. Fine and lush carbonation. Radiant and slightly slick fruitiness is echoed by a juicy punch of floral hops and a kiss of yeasty rusticity. Soft and bouncy malt yields a lip-smacking succulence along with an obligatory deepening scratch of fresh toast and a dusting of dextrins. Pils malt generates an uncured hay grassiness as well as a touch of fresh biscuit. Finishes moist and fully malty, with toasted bread and a delicate slippery fruitiness gliding over the toasty dextrinous clench. A pretty clean rendition, with luscious malt and extremely high drinkability.

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 draft at Brauerei Martin in Unterneuses
clear burnt brick amber body with a thick off-white head. rich, rustic nose of beefy, toasty Munich malt with touches of minerals / calcium. the toffee / cracker / nut oil / toast character is splendid! I find myself thinking this may be close to the perfect dunkel landbier: toasty, dusty and rich with shape-shifting layers of Munich malt; frothy, full, round carbonation with a drying, toasty finish suggesting coffee cake and tobacco, wrapped up with subtly juicy nectar-like German hops. the smell is easily a 9 and might be a 10 on another day. we have a winner here, folks.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2012
On tap at the brewpub: Presumably amber coloured and presumably a bit unclear, no head to speak of, rural-malty nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly drier malty and hoppy finish. Average franconian stuff....

TEJA (1293) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2011
Draught @ Gasthaus Martin, Unterneuses. Malty but without bitterness. No sweetness and well fermented to give a small body. Small mineral taste.

fonefan (35055) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011

Draught @ Gasthaus Martin, Viehtriebweg 3, Unterneuses, Bavaria, Germany 96250.

Clear medium amber orange colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, pale malt, keller notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, acrid bitter, fruity, sweet malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110710]

Koelschtrinker (10636) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Aromatisch malziger, leider etwas blecherner Antrunk mit intensiv werdenden Malznoten, die eine nette und ausbalancierte Würze aufbauen. Wenig schokoladig, sehr angenehm, passend würzig. Gutes, sehr süffiges Dunkles mit passendem, immerhin etwas tiefergehendem Aroma. 7/9/9/11//10

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
Ceramic mug. Lots of foam - looks pretty. Very herbal hop nose. Minerally. Lots of hop, more minerals and a herbal character. Normally beers in the drier, hoppier pocket of Franconian country beer would have more bitterness, but I don’t mind.

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2009 Draught at the brewpub. Served in stein with creamy head. Probably amberish colour. Sweaty strawberry aroma. Mid-sweet and medium bodied. A bit yeasty with a thin blanket of grassy hops. peculiar and estery with dryish grassy bitterness. Goes everywhere, but manages to stay enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Dark gold in krug, cream-colored foamy sudsy head. Delicious aroma of minerals, stones, and herbal hops. Chalky, juicy palate. Nice farminess and mostly leafy, hoppy yum yum. Earth. I love the bitterness and the funky farm together. Another crazy, good Frankenbier!
