Impression: Lindenbräu is my favorite brewpub on the Fünf Seidla Steig, their signature Vollbier a great session beer especially if you’re lucky enough to be there when it’s gravity dispensed. The Festbier is its richly malty big brother, with a similar balanced palate and slightly more kick at 5.4%. I was saddened to find it not on tap but it had just been released so maybe by mid-December it will be.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
