Impression: Expectations play a part in a beer’s perception.   I had very high ones for this brew in Nankendorf. It’s not an easy village to get to without a car so it had eluded me for some time. It was a good looking beer and quite liked the brewpub but the beer itself wasn’t quite as tasty as I had anticipated. That said, it was well-made and had a nice enough fruity palate but the finish could have been a tad dryer. Their Bock was more impressive. I’ve had this a few times since my first encounter and have grown an appreciation for it, especially when the Bock isn’t on to compare it to and perhaps more importantly, if hiking from Waischenfeld to Breitenlesau. I guess beer hiking makes you appreciate a beer’s worth.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
