Impression: This was a beer I’d wanted to have for a long time. Martin stopped brewing in 2014 so I thought it was yet another place I’d missed out on. I was happy to see it reopen in 2017 and it still took me three years to get there. It was a blistering hot day when I did and even though I’d arrived just after its opening, all of the shady spots were taken. The first one came out in a Krug and was very refreshing with a lingering bitter finish. I got the second one in a glass to appreciate its fine clear amber hue and enjoyed it more. It’s got a really balanced flavor with a hint of sulfur but found it a beer I could have settled into if I’d had a room there. But Pferdsfeld and Brauerei Leicht were calling.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
