Impression: Nice pick up while in Eichstätt to sample Hofmühl beers. The local supermarket carried mostly the local product but since Titting is nearby, they had not only the popular Gutmann Weizen but this bottom fermented beer too. I wasn’t sure what to expect as to my knowledge, the brewery had only make Weissbier. I’ve seen a few Weissbier breweries cashing in on the growing popularity of Helles in Franconia but I figured I’d give it a try. This is certainly a tasty enough Helles with a good looking lasting head and some mown grass in the otherwise grainy nose. Hops are less understated than in many southern Bavarian Helles but certainly secondary in the malty palate. This is a fine session beer, perfect at 4.9%.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
