Draught at the brewpub. Almost clear nut brown colour. Big stable rocky tan head. The flavour starts off quite sweet, turns slightly spicy. Has a hint of stable or old hay which gives it character. A little brown sugar as well. bierkoning (13364) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2003

Day Two of the Great Chris Meyer/Aaron Nielsen Franconian Beer Tasting in Schlitz. Prost! Somewhat hazy, dark, burnt orange appearance with a nice brown head. Rich caramel, a bit burnt toffee, grassy, nutty aroma. Nutty, very rich toffee, somewhat burnt, caramel malty, somewhat earthy, fairly sweet flavor. pivnizub (10627) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2005
From the tap (Drummer’s garden, Leutenbach) Amber coloured; thin white foam; Bready nose; soft malty beginning, followed by a mild malty taste; very smooth, low carbonation; nearly no aftertaste (slightly bitter-sweet), thin bodied, almost watery: There are better ones in Franconia......

From tap at the brewpub. It’s beautiful, dark red amber and the head is creamy. The aroma has light notes of burnt sugar and a little green bell-pepper. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, light coffee, dark syrup, a little green bell-pepper, and the finish is slightly dry with a hint of coffee. JorisPPattyn (10006) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2006
Clear copper-amber colour with brownish head, leaving textbook lace. Bready, freshly baked cake, eggbread, caramel malt. Much more bitter taste, quite dry, leafy flavours with hoptouch, and just a touch of (old) bread. Unfortunately there’s a distinct touch of diacetyl there too, responsible for near all the sweetness. Pity - would have rated much higher without. Retronasal again some bitterness - like horse chestnut flavour. Slick, well-filled, a tad too smooth. Pity about the diacetyl, otherwise good amber Vollbier.
