MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 Any first impressions?
-A sumptuous head stands atop the translucent amber/brown, drawing some nifty lacing.
-Dark chocolate and grassy hops stimulate the nostrils.
-The clean, nutty, chocolatey maltiness is like a Franconian take on English Brown Ales.
-The finishing, soft wooden hop bitterness is intelligently linked to dark chocolate sweetness.

What if you dig deeper?
-A wonderfully smooth body is developed by the superbly extracted maltiness; what else could you expect from the wise Franconians?
-Dry wood surfaces in the aroma.
-The bready, toasted malt complexity is fascinating.
-Close to a Dunkel in style, but this is just another Franconian lager beauty.

Bottles.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2009
Draft @ Franconian beer festival. Deep dark brown with red tint. Thick white head. Great fresh malty aroma. Dry chalky mouthfeel. Moderately husky flavors are nice and dry. Solid, very nice.

gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle from Fränkische Botschaft, Berlin. Pours clear dark amber with a small creamy light tanned head. Aroma is good malty, dark bread, caramel and grassy hops. Taste is also malty, full of hayish notes with a light roasty feel at the end, not bad at all.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Fränkisches Bierfest Nürnberg.
Clear chestnut brown with a large off-white head.
Toasty, nutty, doughy, bready, inviting aroma.
Okay so there’s some wet dog hair but that’s probably just me.
Medium body and dry.
Toasty, nutty dark cara malts; crunchy.
Faint just-roasted dark malt.
Fantastically frothy and vivid in the mouth.
Presence, buddy.

Beautiful amber color with medium persistent head. Rich aroma of malts. Taste of malts and caramel. Hoppy bitter aftertaste

3.7
Erzengel (9497) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Malzig-süßlicher Antrunk. Etwas flach, aber dennoch vollmundig. Wie ein Malzbier ohne Zucker. Der Hauptteil ist schön malzig-röstmalzig-süßlch. Im Nachgeschmack schön herb-malzig mit sehr angenehmer Herbe und Röstmalzaroma. Nur die Süße ist etwas unpassend-Malzbierähnlich. 12/11/12/12

sven1000 (13) - bamberg bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
Taste is getting stronger after the first sip though which makes it quite special. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Caramel toffee flavor. Dark head with mediem pores. Really good Lager.
