Impression: On my return trip to Weiher, I had a few days to try many of their beers on tap. This was my third beer out in the Biergarten in a Krug and I found it oddly maltier than both the Lagerbier and Kellerbier. At 4.7%, it’s still a great session beer. I had it in the evening inside in a small tasting glass and the hops seemed more pronounced and the finish more bitter. I liked all three beers but I find that in Franconia, the name Pils doesn’t always equate with hoppier. In fact, often it seems Pils are less bitter than Lagerbiers.
