Many thanks to Rian! Malty-round, fresh-earthy, nice buttered in the end. Very round with a malty round body with lots of bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice and malty, round and sessionable. KyotoLefty (10531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
Bottle from Landbierparadies. Orange-gold color, clear, tall, fine head. Clean pilsner malt nose, herbs, citrus, crackers, toast. Light malt, hoppy. Fruity flavor, apricots, oranges, grass. Nicely fruity with a good, hoppy finish. Not super special but very drinkable. Just a bit too sweet.

Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Bronze, copper colour, slightly hazy, large rocky head, good retention, lots of lacing. S: Citrus, bready, some freshness more reminiscent of North German beers. T: Cork, wheaty with s nice balance of bitterness and sharpness. M: Smooth, medium body, moderate carbonation. O: Decent summertime Kellerbier, didn’t do anything to stand out from an impressive crowd. TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle, best by Nov. 2014, purchased and consumed at the brewery in August 2014: Burnished golden. Broken but creamy, pasty, fine-bubbled foam. Pleasant aroma of fennel seed Spalt, fallen leaves, uncured hay, cookie. Lightly metallic, with a hint of ripe fruity esters. Soft and tight carbonation. Woody and herbal punch of Spalt hits the palate with an oil-rich bitterness as lemony acids sizzle beneath. Dry breadcrusty malt notes exude cleanly. Candyish lager yeast bite melds nicely with the ongoing hop-driven herbality. Plenty of rustic allure here with breadcrust, leaf decay and woody notes arising in unison. Fairly estery as well, with a vibrant kiss of peach backing the lemony hops. Finishes sweetly malty and toasty with breadcrust along with pronounced yeast and lush haylike pils-derived underpinnings. Generally am not a fan of this brewery, so was surprised to find this in good condition and noticeably more enjoyable than their kellerbier. Mouthfeel is nice and soft and the malt pretty clean and full. Good balance, too. Aroma doesn’t reveal a whole lot to my nose, but I enjoyed my glass and will gladly take this over the rest of the beers in their portfolio. 3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2014

Orange body with faint haze and a tall and lasting white head.
Medium body, semi-sweet with medium bitterness. Somewhat hoppy in the mouth with orange-apricot fruitiness, malt provides honey malt sweetness with a toasted grain / bready character that is present more in the finish than the aroma. Festbier strength with a light dose of yeast. Aroma is a little dull, and the malt has some roughness. Not an outstanding beer as the rating average would suggest, but bottled kellerbier is typically dull.
Leicht trübes hell orangegelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch schön malzig, Karamell, etwas fruchtig. Geschmack angenehm malzig würzig, Karamell, leicht hopfig. downender (8729) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle from Landbierparadies, Nuremberg. Golden in colour with a slight, white, head and moderate carbonation. Sweetish, yet crisp, mlats, a touch of floral hop and a lengthy, bitter finish. Enjoyable. Moravius (1374) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2013
Flasche. - Rotgold. Antrunk karamelmalzig-herb. Etwas zu rezent. Kaum süß, statt dessen bis in den Abgang bitterer Hopfen, eher ungewöhnlich für ein Märzen. Langer, kräftig bitterer Nachtrunk mit pfeffrig-bitterem Hopfen. – Ungewöhnlich kerniges, herbes Festbier mit mehr Hopfenbittere als Hopfenaromen. Geht so. miggle (352) - Fürth, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2013
Golden brown color, light head. Nice hop aroma with a little bit of hay and grass. Some sweetness in the beginning, nice bitterness in the middle.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy golden amber colour lasting off white head. Malty aroma. Nutty malty in mouth. No real hop but some residual sting on the finish. Actually the hop builds. It’s an unfiltered something. It’s a hoppy kellerbier I guess. Tasty malty unfiltered and frankly bloody lovely. Beer of the day so far. Hops hops and unfiltered softness. Niw that is what I came to Franconia for. Stunning and you won’t get this quality of beer anywhere else in Germany or the world. Very good
