On draft. Honey amber color. Faint lacing. Flavor is of caramel, honey and toast, with a crisp hop bite at the finish. Really nicely done!

This golden beer has a mild pleasing aroma. It has a sweet flavor and strong wheat notes. A good beer for sipping on a hot Dallas day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden color with white head. Lagered bready pale malt aromas with some mild earthy hoppage. medium body with soft co2. Clean doughy malt flavors with crisp dry hoppage--clean smooth finish-better than most lagers.

Tap. Golden orange pour with white head that disappeared quickly. Wheat, bread, green apple, spice. Refreshing with medium carbonation and crisp taste but with soft and flavorful finish.

On tap at Oak St. Draft House. Pours a clear golden orange with a slowly fading white head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of grass. Flavor is the same with a touch of fruit. Great lager.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub. The beer pours a clear, golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is wheat with some earthy hops as well as some green grape notes. The flavor is more of the same. The bread and wheat from the grain bill come through nicely and there is some grassy and spicy hop notes. The grapes from the aroma are also present in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(draught at Capitol Pub) clear golden, white frothy head and nice retention. Nose of apple, butter, and sweetish grain. Taste of butter, grain, Mild crisp hops, decent lager!

Hand-bottle (pressurized)… The Grolsch bottle’s top popped off with a “BANG!” just like a pistol went off. I’m thinking this is gonna taste pretty darned fresh. Clear, brilliant amber lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is restrained until warmed, and then caramel and rich, toasted malts come forth in a big way. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and refreshing, but not without its lager version of rich caramel and toasted malt decadence that carries over into a lightly bitter, toasted grain finish. I’ve tried several true Franconia lagers, a couple of them Marzens, and this is true to style. Not flashy, but very classy. I’m looking forward to sharing the other two bottles with the Orlando crew. Thanks to ericandersnavy for the hand-bottle!

Clear gold with a small white head. Slight malt aroma. Sweet taste. I lived in Germany for two years and never had this "Style".
