Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2011
#148 Dunkelbraun mit viel Schaum, sieht aus wie ein leckeres ALT. Ein würziges Aroma nach Kakao und Bitterschokolade. Im Antrunk voll und weich zugleich. Geschmacklich vollmalzig mit Kakaonoten im Abgang. Die Frische dieses Bieres ist geradezu erschmeckbar! Es ist unbehandelt und nur zwei Monate haltbar. Aus Unterzaunsbach kommt eine veritable Perle Deutscher Braukunst. Ein weiteres tolles Bier der Brauerei Meister!

Grima (2069) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
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!!!

jonas (5592) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2004
Bottle Caramel malt, a hint of chocolate and bitter hop aroma. Beautifull golden brown color, the frothy white head leaves lace on the glas and the well-lagered light carbonation looks like champagnebubbles. The nice sweet roasted and butterscotch-like maltflavors stay enough in the background and leave a lot of space for a wonderfull broad hop profile - Meisterhaft. Light chocolate and bitterhop aftertaste, medium body and a fine bubbling mouthfeel.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2011
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!

Amber. Bright. Thick head. Rich toasty aroma, light fruity bursts. Toasty, lightly herbal, with quite a rich character. Full body. Very drinkable.

ToddA (21) - California, USA - NOV 27, 2009
From a bottle brought home from my latest trip to Franconia. Sweetish dark lager much in the local style. A hint of smoke, loads of munich malt sweetness and just a hint of hops for balance. Very clean and a hint of sulfur but in a good way. Highly recommended, went by the brewery twice in October to find it closed both times. Bottle comes from Rewe Getranken market not far from brewery...can’t remember town.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate, caramel, and medium-strength hops. Dark copper pour with a lacing beige head. Sweet caramelly flavor, slightly flowery. Bread, light fruitiness, and hops. Really a rich mouthfeel. Medium body. Moderately dry finish. Well-balanced. This is really nice!
