Draft at Fränkisches Bierfest Nürnberg. Ernest (7862) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Striking amber-orange, creamy white head.
Orange gelatin hop aroma.
Rich malt, somewhat fruity in an Altbier way: orange, cherry...
Clean and juicy, smacking, satisfying.
Toasty grains with toffee-ish Munich malt touches.
Well lagered, no off-notes, malt sugar and oily, fruity hops sit in balance.
Easy to put down. Very aromatic and expressive and clean.
Draught at the Fränkisches Bierfest Nürnberg 2013.
Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off-white, fully lasting.
Body is clear medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with notes of marmalade and honey.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Just another solid brew from Simon, really...luscious nose full of well-extracted malt and bold fruity-flowery hops. Very good balance in the mouth as well. Not quite as fully rounded as the Spezial and Weissbier, but a delight nonetheless.
