Slightly cloudy with good head. Sweet and tasty in your mouth with no bitterness or after taste.

I was actually fortunate enough to stumble across this brewery while traveling through Germany, and this was one of the best experiences I've had while traveling abroad. The brewery I visited was in Berchtesgaden (home of Hitler's famous Eagle's nest), and I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere, not to mention the delicious beer. Being young at the time, only 20, I was unfamiliar with Franziskaner when I ordered it (I basically just pointed to the tap), but was pleasantly surprised by its full aroma and exceptional taste. To this day, this is still one of my favorite beers, and I'm so glad its available here in the U.S. Kind of a lucky find...but I'm so glad I did!

This beer loves to be inside me.

I don't mind, either.
