3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear, deep amber lager with a small, creamy, white head that never fully vanishes. The bouquet is toasty and roasty with a splash of tawny port and a touch of sorghum molasses. Medium to full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The nutty, toasted malt flavor is mildly sweet and a tad vinous. Finishes crisp and fairly clean. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark bronze color, the head disappears very quickly. Smells like strong caramel malt and roasty notes. The beginning part is intense roasty, slightly spicy and good caramel. The aftertaste is very malty bitter. The center part is clearly bitter, bitter hops come to light.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle looks good, beer in the glass also. Dark, nice head. Starts malty and dry, modest sourish. Finish a bit more metallically, a bit unbalanced. Drinkable, but not my favourite!
