1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured from cask to a somewhat disappointing spectacle. I was under the impression that the gas had gone due to the minimal head, but I was mistaken. A darker lager than expected, and the aroma was average...nothing more nothing less. Without being over critical I did not enjoy this beer at all. It has a sweetness to it that developed further down the glass. Others that drank this felt the same. It really is one of those beers where you can only stomach a pint or two. Overall a below average boston lager that I believe should only be sold by the bottle,not cask.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark yellow colour with a light white fading head. Noses of barley, barnyard and sugared malt. On the palate it develops a light slick texture with a medium sweet body. The finish leaves some dryness and fades relatively quick.

Amber pour, minimal head. Nose is spicy hops and malt. Slightly more bitter then sweet. Middle is medium bodied and a loaf of yummy bread (not technical, but so what). Finish has some pleasant hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice colour and good 1 finger head. Aroma is nice but could be a touch more. Excellent balance, creamy caramel malts. In many ways, more Pale Ale-like than the Sam Pale Ale. Medium mouthfeel, very refreshing.

Moderately sweet and sour doughy nose with notes of cara-malts, draff and diacetyl. Sweet and minimal bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty and doughy taste with draff and sweat; sweet and lasting metallic finish. Absolutely disappointing by Franconian standarts
