Impression: Since Neder only has their Export on tap and it’s from the barrel, I haven’t been tempted to sample many of their bottle-only beers. This Pils is a point in case so I was happy to see it in a local shop when staying there. It’s got a deep golden hue and relatively malty palate for the style but the grain is more subdued. The hops are fairly restrained but nonetheless drying. The typical quip about a Pils in Franconia is it’s a good Helles but this one bridges the gap with a quaffable maltiness well balanced with fair hopping. The finish is enticing. I could drink a few of these.

Next beer or back to the beer list.

  1. Forchheim is a town I have visited twice (in 1997 and 2001), but only to do presentations for the English teachers. I don’t recall trying the beer there, even though I was still a beer drinker at that time.

    1. There are some pretty good beers there, Don but I must say the pubs are a bit on the rough side, especially the best one. Doreen usually tells me to go on my own or if it’s nice we’ll sit outside in the back. There are tons of Bierkellers just outside town which also feature the beers in a nicer setting. We spend a lot of the time hiking a bit further our. It’s well-connected by train and by lots of buses into rural areas.
