50cl bb03/2016, REWE Bayreuth. - Pretty much filtered clear beige-yellow pour, dishwash cap. Sweetish nose of boiled corn - more pleasant in flavour: traces of nut peel bitters, faint caramel, dry herbal finish, stopping short the sweet melissa lemonade. Pretty basic, decent Franconian lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 Draught at Brauerei Gasthof Reichold in May 2013 and from fresh bottles over the years: Burnished golden. Quick, broken white foam. Very delicate but clean aromas of breadcrust, wood-root-spice hops, earth- and pecan-tinged malt, and candyish yeast. Tight carbonation. Well-bodied. Opens with a medley of spicy hops and succulent nectar. Faint breadcrust sharpness beautifully offsets the more pillowy and intricate malt aspects. Just enough minerals to coarsen the slippery body. Cleanly extracted honey-soaked malt drips with juices and a vibrant albeit understated richness. Finishes with Spalter-derived lemon candy suggestions and dabs of sweet nectar and refined hay dust textures. A fairly simple and uncomplicated Franconian lagerbier, but what it lacks in character it makes up for it with nice balance and cleanness. Fun little quaffer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. light amber body with a small white head. faint aroma of crunchy cereals, toast, dry mix dog food, browned apple esters and minor hints of nut oils. minerality is nice but the starchiness is not; frothy carbonation and medium acid wash the tongue. finish of mild almond and cooked corn kernels with some light sulfur and burnt caramel showing through in the finish. overall a pretty simple and basic beer without much intrigue.
