Impression: Oddly enough, there two .33l fancy bottles of two Franconian classic beers next to each other at the beer store. One was a craft take on Krug-Bräu’s Urstoff, called Kraft-Stoff. This one said 1750 Vollbier so I assumed it was a craft take on their legendary Vollbier. It was perhaps over-chilled so it looked unfiltered in the glass but closer inspection revealed it was perhaps not so. It sure doesn’t look as clear as their Vollbier on tap. On their website, it lists the 1750 as merely being packaged in a convenient small bottle. I don’t know about you, but I don’t find a small bottle more convenient, especially of a beer as tasty as this one. Originally, I was upset to not have a bottle of the “regular” one to compare it to but now I’m mostly unhappy I didn’t just buy the original!
