Draft at the Gingerman. Reddish brown in color, very muddy look, thinner tan head. The smell is slight hops, sweet, caramel, watery, and malts. The taste is the same as the smell. crajun (1263) - , Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 11/17 rererate. have had a couple of times in bottle since and lowered from 3.8. doubting if this is what I had on draft as bottle version is much less and more of a generic lager than what I had on draft.....................................11/15 rerate. draft at square burger in Mck. remained at 3.8. bumped aroma - this has a unique aroma and flavor that I can’t place - some said graham crackers?? definitely has a unique aroma/taste. not as much chocolate but a malty smooth drink I am a fandraft at gingerman plano - new style for me; DAMN that was good - dark pour with ruby edges taste was malty sweet; very silky 4 on palate and call me crazy but there was a chalky chocolate flavor at end - had to ask if this was a bock or stout? actually seemed like a cross between the two. note to self: drink more Fanconia... taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Brown and cloudy with a good head. Taste is very smooth with toasted malt and not much bitterness. I went back for more over this and it may be my fave Franconia brew.
