Nose
A biscuity aroma, filled with plain chocolate and treacly malt.
Palate
Biscuity, grainy malt with lots of dark chocolate. There's a fine balance between malty sweetness and roasted bitterness, with an underlying cleanness that makes it rather quaffable, despite the rich malty flavours.
Finish
Dry, bitter chocolate with a developing hop tang.
Comment
A full value, tasty beer with clean flavours and good balance. Franconia is the northern part of Bavaria.
