Brauerei Eichhorn Forchheim Reviews


Leighton
Eichhorn Vollbier Dunkel 3.5
Draft at the brewery during the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear, dark gold with a foamy, off-white head. Solid low octane dunkel. Pleasant notes of toasted bread, light tin, leaves, brown sugar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with further notes of toasted bread and mellow brown sugar. Nice.

Eichhorn Edel Pils 3.7
Draft at the brewery during day 2 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear gold, effervescent, with a frothy white head. Great stuff. Some sugary cereals, white bread, light hay, lemon meringue. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately clean on the finish, with continuing sweet cereal, a little bitter hay. Lovely, easy-drinking beer, although a bit basic.

Draft at the brewery during day 2 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy white head. Big cereal aroma, with corny accents. Light sweet flavor with more rich cereal character, slight bitter straw for balance. Light in body with average carbonation. Biscuity finish, with further cereal. Nice lager.

Eichhorn Festbier 3.3
Draft at keller: Pleasant aroma of lemony Spalter, toasted hay, flowers, and a touch of mineral. Soft and snug carbonation. Initially snappy with light minerals coupled with a crisply defined punch of nutty toffee-kissed Munich malt fused with haylike pils. Vague kiss of woody Spalt pokes through, as does a hint of licorice. Fruity esters offer dense slickness while the minerals and light tastiness delicately scratch at the tongue. Quiet lemony oiliness accentuates the nicely layered malt. Well-integrated maltcentric finish features toasted bread and a bouncy fusion of pecan and honeyed hay. Perhaps a bit straightforward, but it’s mostly clean and exhibits proper balance.

Eichhorn Festbier 2.4
Tap (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Oktoberfest 2015)
Latvian aroma, some sweetish milkiness, probably some lactobacillus starting to wake up. Gold, brief head. Watery palate, cold, biting carbonation. Pleasant woodiness, but pretty boring. Hints of diacetyl. Meh, I’m not a lagerboy and can’t get excited by this.

Eichhorn Vollbier Hell 3.1
Bottle bought @ Landbierparadies. Pours tiny hazy golden with a rather small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty and slightly floral with sourdough bread, hay, dried yellow flowers, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, very tiny sour, tiny malty and slight floral. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tiny astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with wholegrain crackers, cereal, hay, minerals, iron, paper and lemon peal. Bit too dry in my opinion. Gets a bit papery. Decent beer still though.

Eichhorn Edel Pils 2.6
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Tiefes Goldgelb, klar. - In der Nase breites getreidiges Malz und schwach hopfenwürzige, leider auch etwas muffige Noten. - Antrunk für ein Pils allzu breit malzsüß und schwach karamellig, beinahe Bockbier-artig, mit mäßig aromatischer, leicht grasiger Hopfenherbe. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Auch im Abgang noch Malzsüße, verbunden mit kräftiger aber wenig aromatischer Hopfenherbe. - Für ein Pilsener deutlich zu malzbetont (wozu muß es auch 5,4 % haben?) und zu wenig differenziert in der Hopfung. Noch passabel aber kein großer Genuß. (Vom Faß wohl besser, wenn man anderen Bewertungen hier trauen darf.)

I've been at brewery and the fest bier offered to me was golden color with a nice white head that kept a nice lacing for while. Aroma is sweet malt. Flavor is like aroma, more sweetness and light bitterness. Low carbonation with light to medium body and light bitter finish. Good one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

Eichhorn Vollbier Dunkel 4.3
Rated as Brauns Achhörnla. Schöne kastanienbraune Farbe, malzig-trockener Geruch. Der Antrunk ist angenehm vollmundig-trocken-malzig. Ganz leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine süßlich-gherbe Note hinzu, sie sich aber doch in Hintergrund hält und zum Nachgeschmack hin den herberen Part hervorbringt. Eine Herb-malzige Note verbleibt im Mund, die Süße ist fast ganz verschwunden. Schöne herb-trockene Note, Dunkles Laub, ganz leicht säuerlich.
→ Ein sehr leckeres fränkisches Dunkel. Kaum süß, schön trocken-malzig und angenehm ausgewogen herb! Vielen Dank an wastl für dieses tolle Bier!! 13/13/14/14

Eichhorn Vollbier Hell 3.3
Ein helles Vollbier – golden im Glas mit süßlich-malzigem Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-mild, angenehm malzig und leicht würzig-süßlich. Zum Hauptteil tritt die malzig-würzige Note etwas weiter in den Vordergrund, eine angenehme Herbe kommt hinzu, schön grasig-hopfenblumig-frisch. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend und malzig-herb mit angenehmer leichten würzigen Süße.
→ Leckeres fränkisches helles Vollbier! Vielen Dank an wastl! 11/12/10/11

Eichhorn Edel Pils 3.7
Vom fass at Brauerei Eichhorn Forchheim in Dec. 2012: Luminous blonde. Broken but creamy white foam adorns the glass with beautiful lacing. Solid aroma of lemon, toasted hay, pepper, melon, pungent herbs, and rich pils malt. Soft body. Firm and snug carbonation. Assertively hoppy and lightly salty with a grassy bitterness scrubbing the palate alongside a surge of bright minerals and fervidly peppery hop spice. Distant metallic zing comes and goes as the coarse toastiness takes hold. Quite lean at the core, though ample floral succulence aids in rounding out the body. Finishes leafy and peppery in its bitterness, with softening shades of sweet honey-kissed hay and toasted baguette. The framework is certainly here as it’s free of defects and the hops are nicely layered, just would appreciate a brighter hop bouquet. Still, it’s a lovely Franconian pils.
