Pours amber with a white head. Smells breaddy with some raisiny and appley hints. Tastes spicy and sweet with a caramelly finish. hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Bottle... February in Franconia (2011)… Clear, deep amber lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Good retention. The complex nose is a fusion of honey, biscuit, toffee, date and fig. Full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. Decently balanced for a Marzen. The hardy flavor leans sweet and offers a nice selection of malts. A semblance of balance is provided by minerally, spicy hops. Moderately sweet, nourishing finish. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconia lagers possible! pivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2005

Bouteille 50cl de Hopfen & Malz, Berlin.
Cuivrée, col moyen blanc cassé.
Arôme est malté sur un bouquet noisette farineux très léger, note grains-biscuité très légère avec un caramel très agréable.
Palais est léger, malt, grillé et caramel dans un profil très allemand mais sans ce côté faux sucré caramel. Le tout est vraiment ponctué par un ajout biscuité, crystal, pâle très sympa se terminant sur un léger chocolaté. Les houblons restent plus discret. MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2007
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a fluffy, off-white foamy head. A bit dusty, moderately sweet, minimal sour and roast-malty aroma with caramel and spicy hops in the background. Light-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Moderately roasted malty taste with caramel and milk chocolate; dry-ish, malty slightly bitter finish with a delicate blend of herbal hops and a rural barnyard note. Not that much different to the Vollbier, but a bit stronger and eventually a bit more roasty; very pleasant and quaffable, although I prefer the Vollbier which is better balanced from my point of view.

bottle, traded with wastl. Clear chestnut colour with a small beige head. Malty nose. Medium-bodied, flavours of caramel and spicy aromatic hops. Shy hints of bitter chocolate and cocoa powder. Most impressive is the palate, I’ve rarely had a beer with such a pleasant palate. Extremely smooth and velevety yet with signs of liveliness. A delicious beer - a masterpiece, ein Meisterstück. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012

clear rich brick red body with a soft just-white head. striking calcium / mineral water and toasted Munich malt nose with nut oil, toffee and baked bread fun. touches of maraschino cherry and sweet apple show up as it breathes. medium body with an oily and slick texture, very smooth with rich sweet almond cake / amaretto flavored malt. overall it seems very well put-together, though much drier than what I expect (and like) in festbier malt-bombs.
Bottled - Pigs Ear BF. An amber coloured beer with an off-white puddle of head. The aroma is malty and a bit dry. Wood and sweet malts in the taste. Hints of alcohol and sweet finish. Quite nice
