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.
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
