3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... February in Franconia (2011)… Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The nose is of honey and white pepper. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is light biscuit and honey accompanied by snappy hop bitterness. Crisp, clean finish. As it turns out, this was a great accompaniment to Broken Barrel’s smoked bbq ribs. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconia lagers possible!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a dense medium-sized foamy white head. Strong grassy hops aroma with a shy, but slightly perfumed malty tinge. Medium-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Grassy hoppy taste on a soft malty base; dry and medium-bitter finish with grassy hops character. Drinkable but one-dimensional and a bit boring.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. We can always count on Bob to share the rare German beers.
The beer pours a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat with a little bit of pilsner malt mixed in. The flavor is wheat with some dry malt and a little bit of toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
