Impression: After the Rotbier, I probably should have returned to my favorite, the Hausbier but since I’d had all the others on tap, I decided to try the Pils. This is really a hit or miss style in Franconia. The best aren’t true German Pils but dry and fruity. Others are drier and somewhat more bitter than a Helles but have a grainy aspect. The last lot are quite bland and heading towards the lesser mass-produced variety many associate with a German Pils. This one was in the second group. Again, nicely poured in a logo glass despite my asking for a small pour. It was grainy for the style but dry without being particularly bitter. It was run of the mill but I think I liked it better than the Helles. It would be interesting to taste them side by side in full pour glasses without knowing which was which but I don’t think that will happen. The next time I’m in town, I believe I’ll have another Rotbier but mostly stick to the Hausbier.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
