Fruity aroma with a malty aftertaste. Nice head with a bit of body as it goes down. Great with food.

Reddish-brown colour. Very toasty aroma - quite appetizing with a hint of chocolate. Metallic on the palate a bit, with hints of chocolate and light toastiness. Complex, nice lager.

Knoblach Brewery. Beer-Garden, Schammelsdorf/nearby Bamberg. Maerzen - the UpperFranconian Beer made for Export in the past (more malt and hops for a better keepability, during transportation). The Räuschla flushes, for sure. great example for - less is definitely more! traditional franconian - bottom fermented. bitterness and hopnote made my late afternoon during hot summer and ade decission easy to ask for more of that - amber style flushy masterpiece. Excellent crafted, by the junior BrewMaster - Johannes Knoblach!

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2009
Draft at brewery. Served in a krug, and appears as dark golden. This and the lager were both fabulous and shared many elements in common. Both were liquid bread and balanced, and both had big juicy palates. I found the märzen to have a sweeter, fruitier malt background versus the intense toastiness of the lager but both had a similarly delicious burnt breadcrust flavor. Absolutely impressive.

Spina @ Scurreria. Ambrata chiara con schiuma fine è persistente. Un pelo più dolce e biscottata della lager.

Pours a filtered amber-golden color, with a spongy, lively, small head. Smells of well water with a mineralic tone to it, together with straw, wet grass and a hint of smoke. Drinks very refreshing and light bodied, subtle on the smoke with a surprisingly pungent dryness, once the beer’s carbonation turns more effervescent. Tastes of dough, straw, a tad of toffee, and offers lots of dried herbs. Its hoppiness stays easily in balance, while it effectivly cuts of any sweetness beyond the foundation of a well working malt backbone. The beer finishes soft and clean, with its mineralic impression from the nose getting transported to the palate, together with a smoky quality and a late toffee sweetness. Very different then expected - perfectly balanced but way more refreshing than your typical Rauch, based on its light smokiness, which compliments to a way more pronounced hop punch, heading into a crisp interpretation of a Landbier. Nice from beginning till the end, throughout enjoyable.

KyotoLefty (10611) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Glowing dark orange with a low head. A bit darker than the lagerbier. Clear. Caramel and peach in the nose, a touch of smoke. Flavor is caramel, rye bread, peaches. Smooth and light yet full bodied. Very bitter and herbal like the lager, though not as much so.

bartlebier (4118) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2016
50cl bottle bb04/2016 at Pelikan, Bamberg on St Patrick’s Day. Bref: Rich fruit marmelade-slathered breadcrust (Landbrot, of course) on just the right amount of lager octanes to be inbibed in perfect harmony with a chilly spring evening. One of many instances of Franconian dry nectar.

pivnizub (10768) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2009
Draught: Seems to be deep golden, medium-sized, lacy white head, solid sweet-malty and delicate hoppy nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, smooth; juicy malt, indeed, in the lingering sweet-bitter finish. Knoblach is good........

Bottle (Vroni’s Bamberg) Light amber coloured, thin, lasting off-white firm head; fruity (honey, plums) and malty aroma, combined with some herbal hoppiness, some smoky or wooden notes ?!?!? Soft, sweetish, fruity beginning; mild bitter-sweet flavour; dry, bitter and "barrique-like" aftertaste, long lasting. A very good and very unusual example of a franconian Lager !
