Impression: I saw this in Marktheidenfeld and picked it up despite not having heard of it. It was a another Lower Franconian brewery just up the Main in Rothenfels but it stopped brewing in 2011. The restaurant was open until recently and had their beers contract brewed nearby.  Hopefully, they can reopen with these beers on tap even if no longer brewed onsite. A gorgeous pour with a lovely amber hue and rocky off-white head.  Toasted malt and roast in both the nose and palate. The alcohol is quite up front and warming so drinking it on this sunny day might not be ideal but found it after the season. The lingering finish is stickier than l’d like but it’s 7.2% so not out of line.  Still, I find it a bit simple for its strength and wouldn’t seek out again.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
