Beautiful ruby red color with a slight haze. Smells malty bitter with a slightly roasted aroma.Starts with a fantastic balance of roasted malt flavor, mild bitterness and a pleasant sweet taste.Sweet-caramelly aftertaste, with hints of roasted malts and some nut aromas. The further course is caramelly-sweet, with massive malt body, paired with a delicious sweet aroma. Totally amazing!!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… This beer rocks!… Clear, brilliant copper lager with a huge, frothy, white that slowly diminishes to a small, creamy, tight cap which remains afloat throughout consumption. The bouquet is toasty, doughy and lightly nutty - so reminiscent of mashing day inside a brewery – boiling wort… ahhh yesss. The hops are subdued, but smell earthy and spicy. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor offers sweet, toasty and doughy notes along with flavorful, spicy hops – low bitterness. Finishes lightly sweet and toasty with only a tinge of bitterness. World class dunkel in my book! Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 Szép és tiszta borostyános szín, világos barna habbal. Maláta majd kellemes tejeskávé illat de ez csak 8-10 perccel a kitöltés után lesz konkrét. Kicsit savanykás komlós íz.
Harmonikus, laza sör.
Lehetne aromásabb, sűrűbb...
