Town: Birk am Forst (Untersiemau)
Head: white, rocky
Palate: balanced, hoppy, slight grain
Finish: clean, dry, semi-bitter
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: I didn’t have a lot of time and it would have been easy to have a second Rotbier but I tried the Pils despite getting burned on one the evening before at another brewpub. This one came out with a nice rocky head and hops in the nose so I was hopeful. The nose didn’t lie and it was a dry hoppy beer with just enough bitterness to make it moreish. Sometimes you just have to try the Pils.
Next beer or back to the beer list.

I'm an American living in Munich. Why? Well, I came for the beer but stayed for the girl. I'm very happily married to a German woman. Of course, the bonus of great beer certainly doesn't hurt. An avid love of hiking and finding new beers has led me to found beerwanderers, an information resource on beer hiking trails in Franconia with an emphasis on Franconian food specialties and the endless variety of amazing beer the region is renowned for. I also just published my first book Beer Hiking Bavaria which features 50 beer hikes in Bavaria. View all posts by beerwanderers
