Impression: This was my final beer and it’s always good to see a German brewery make a low alcohol beer. It’s rare and the practice of mixing non-alcoholic sweetened beverages with beer just doesn’t sit well with me, as popular as it is in Bavaria. This is a beer I’d like to have first one day as after heavier beers, it was a bit light-bodied though the flavor held up well and the finish was surprisingly clean. It was nicely balanced and would be a nice Helles alternative for those looking for something that won’t impair their senses, clocking in at only 2.8%.
