Impression: The first time I had this beer, it was in the brewpub with my then new girlfriend (now wife). To say she was being kind to bring me to this small village is an understatement. It was a dark cold winter night. It was a dark cold Franconian village. We had no map, it was before we had a GPS and smartphones were a thing of the future. My memory of it is clouded by all these factors but I remember enjoying the excitement of something so new. I returned a few years ago with my wife and it was a sunny afternoon and we sat outside. It was entirely different and the beer looked amazing when it was brought out. It was such a full bodied brew and perfect in this village setting. When most people imagine a beer, this is probably what comes to mind. Of course, once they took a sip, they’d likely be pleasantly surprised at it being better than than they had imagined.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
