Served: from a bottle bought in Bayreuth

Impression: Picked this up despite being an odd .33l bottle. Coming on the heels of a surprisingly good 4.4% Helles from Frauendorfer, this looked lackluster and had very little in the nose. All fears were allayed by the balanced hoppy first sip. It looks to only be sold in small bottles from their website but it’s one little beer that leaves you wanting more.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
