Impression: Karg was one of the Weißbiers I wanted to try when I first started to travel around extensively in Bavaria in the 90s. It’s still one of my favorites and I can happily buy it at the beer store in Munich. Still, there’s something about having it at the brewery. It looks the part but is a bit darker than you might be used to, having more of the appearance of a Schneiderweisse. It’s also got more hops in the mix but it’s not intrusive in any way. It’s a refreshingly fruity and dry Weißbier and a great way to end your hike in Murnau.
