Hübner Staadtfelder Christkindla
Head: off-white, rocky
Nose: grainy, some hops, hint of tobacco
Palate: malty, grainy, hoppy, hint of tobacco
Finish: semi-dry, bitter
Served: from a bottle bought in the area
Impression: This was another surprising Festbier coming on the heels of their 200th Anniversary beer I’d had a few weeks earlier. This time, the amber beer was filtered but again a nice dark Festbier with good head retention. It was malty as expected but balanced out with fair hops and a touch of tobacco in the mix. The finish was pleasantly bitter and moreish at 5.5%.
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
