Style: Franconian Lager
Head: white, thinning
Nose: malty, slight caramel, light hops
Body: fairly full
Palate: balanced but firmly hoppy
Finish: clean, dry, bitter
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: This is a beer which gets lost in the shuffle due to the popularity of Keesmann’s flaghip Herren Pils. I can’t say anything as it had been ages since I’d had it and was pleasantly surprised by its dry hoppy character. It manages to be quite malty and simultaneously dry and seems much richer than its reported 5%. The finish is decidedly dry and bitter. I’ll be ordering this again soon.
