Impression: Must admit I wasn’t expecting a lot from this brewery as what few reviews I had read didn’t sound promising. Either I don’t agree or the brewery has made vast improvements.  The setting certainly didn’t hurt, sitting in a charming little Biergarten overlooking many half-timbered houses adorned with colorful blooming roses. Anyway, the beer was up to task with the setting. It was an easy to drink session beer but not lacking in flavor whatsoever. The finish was moreish and at 4.9%, a great session beer.  If I hadn’t had to canoe back to town, I certainly would have had another!

Returned this past winter and though there were a few winter special seasonals, I couldn’t resist to have a small Kellerbier as it was served in a glass rather than Krug and it was nice to see the amber hue. It seemed even fruitier but still had a nice dry finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
