Impression: I’d had this beer many years prior to this and it was probably on tap. Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions and the brewpub just reopening a few days prior to my visit, their uncertainty as to how busy it would be prompted them to only have the Vollbier Hell on tap.  The owner explained the dark beer would normally be on tap too. This was still a gorgeous beer nonetheless,  in a squirrel logo mug. It has a similar flavor to the Hell but less fruity and with a bit of roast. It is also quite dry in the finish. I hope to return to have it tap again soon. 

Next beer or back to the beer list.
