Impression: I didn’t realize this was Kesselring when I bought it but the bottle looked familiar. Urfränkisches is their moniker so must remember as this is another good one from them. It’s a gorgeous slow pour with a deep golden hue and rocky head. There’s some honey in the otherwise richly malty nose. The richly malty palate is again tinged with honey but underlying hops dry it out nicely in the lingering, semi-dry bittersweet finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
