Served: from a bottle bought locally

Impression: Binkert is a relatively new brewery which brews both traditional and new craft beer styles. They seem to have a fair following from the looks of their crowd at the Nürnberg beer festival. I’d tried both a beer there and a bottled Bock and found them both well-made but not overly flavorful. I saw some bottles recently and decided to give them a try too. This Kellerbier poured with a massive sudsy head and nice mix of hops and grain in the nose. It was a hoppy beer with some yeasty elements thrown in and the finish was dry and bitter. I’d have to say I liked this better than my first two impressions. Certainly quaffable at 4.9%. I’d buy it again.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
