Day #206 – Franconia Alt

July 26, 2011

Sorry for the late post. Last night was a little crazy.

Franconia ALT

Stopped in for my usual Ginger Man night and found a new Texas beer on tap. It’s from Franconia which makes this a new DFW beer! It is classified as an Altbier at 4.7%.


This beer pours a slightly hazy rich orange color with a light layer of white head.

The aroma is laid back and easy. Light notes of grassy hops with some earthy notes and grains. Subtle I would say.

Flavor is upfront hops and grassy tones, with a grainy body and slick mouthfeel. Light malts but has a bitter finish. Could use a little more sweetness I think.
