Brauhaus Höchstadt Kellerbier

Brewery: Brauhaus Höchstadt an der Aisch
Höchstadt an der Aisch
in Krug so no visuals, looks amber
Head: off-
white, creamy
Nose: malty

medium, lacking the softness of the style
Palate: balanced, malty, dry, hoppy

Finish: clean, semi-dry, semi-bitter

Served: on tap at the Laufer Keller

Impression: I had low expectations of the Brauhaus Höchstadt beers but the first one I tried while at the Laufer Keller, their Helles, caught me off-guard with how hoppy it was. This Kellerbier came out in a logo Krug with a similar creamy head but looked darker than the Helles. An attempt to get the beer in a clear glass was thwarted by their not having one. It had a maltier nose and lacked the grain element of the Helles but was similar on the dryness continuum. It wasn’t as bitter but it was somehow more hoppy. Despite it be a little gassy for the style, I enjoyed it more than the Helles.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
