Impression: I finally got a chance to have this again. I’d had it seven years ago or so but couldn’t quite remember what it was like. I only remembered it wasn’t as smokey as their signature Märzen. Well, it’s quite a nice Kellerbier even if it weren’t for the slight smokiness that never intrudes but none-the-less influences the overall impression. I noticed a lot of people drinking it and they weren’t all tourists. I’d have to say, it would be my first choice if there in summer again. Excellent smoky session beer.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
