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!

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.

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!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 On tap at the Irish Rover in Frisco, TX. Pours a clear deep gold with white head, laced the glass. Aroma is slight citris and caramel. Flavor has a nice semi sweet caramel malt flavor. Palate is medium body, medium-high carbonation, very nice. I had again at the Bavarian Grill in Plano, it seemed better this time around.....Very tasty and malty.

light amber with a lining of white froth. honey and malts on the nose. wow, that’s a big honey flavor that is quite smooth and a very refreshing finish.

jhamp9 (1889) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2012
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.

Corps entier, un peu plus sucré qu’une lager macro avec une finale dure et herbacée.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2009
on tap at lucky lou’s in denton tx. poured a golden color with a white head. couldnt really smell any aroma because of the smoke in there. flavor was pretty sweet, but nicely balanced. also had some citrus in it as well. had medium body and medium carbonation. not bad at all.
