Bottled@GBBF2009. Deep murky reddish brown colour with a mediumsized foamy beige head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some burnt sugar, mild dark dry fruits as well as some slight earthyness. Flavour is sweet malts along with some slight bittery and earthcellary notes. Smooth and quite nice.

Ernest (6183) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted nuts/bread, coffee, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Another decent brew from Nothelfer. They aren’t very exciting brews, but they are very clean, and quite pleasant. This one has some nifty malt character (coffee, nuts, caramel, bread crust), but I wish it was more aromatic. Good balance in the mouth, but unfortunately very light bodied and thus not terribly satisfying to drink. Franconia is certainly no different from anywhere else in the world, there are plentiful brewing issues to be found (diacetyl, husky malt, etc.). The signal:noise ratio is about as mediocre as anywhere else with a decent brewing culture...so this is a nice ray of clean sunshine into my sampling explorations.

Bottle, pours a dark red-brown with a lasting thin beige head. Malty, lightly roasty and cocoa nose, good hoppy bitterness then a chewy malt body, dry with touches of cocoa, burnt caramel and a vegetal bitterness in the finish. A nice Frankish Dunkel.
