Meinel-Bräu Absolvinator bottle

Meinel-Bräu Absolvinator is a richly malty Doppelbock with enough underlying hops to keep it from being cloying. No mean feat at 7.5%

Meinel-Bräu Blümla

Meinel-Bräu Blümla is an excellent Craft Beer Pale Ale with a marvelous citrusy nose and chiffon-like head. The lingering semi-dry finish is moreish.

Göller Lager

Göller Lager is a good example of the Altfräkisch style with a balanced malty palate and lingering semi-dry finish.

Fischer (Wieseth) Das Pils bottle

Fischer Das Pils is an excellent example of the style with a balanced palate featuring hops and grain before a semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.

Fischer (Wieseth) Das Helle bottle

Fischer Das Helle is a gorgeous beer with a balanced palate featuring more hops than most in the style. The semi-dry, semi-bitter finish is moreish.

Fischer (Wieseth) Das Spezial bottle

Fischer Das Spezial is a premier example of this very Franconian malt forward style which manages to be dry without being bitter in the least.

Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Hefeweizen

Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Hefeweizen is a serviceable if somewhat bland example of the style.

Rittmayer Maibock

Rittmayer Maibock is one of the drier Hellerbocks I've come across. The combination of rich malt and obvious hops is something I wish more breweries would attempt. This is my favorite of the Rittmayer line-up.

Gutmann Untergrärig Feinherb Frisch

Gutmann Untergärig Feinherb Frisch is the Weizenbrauerei powerhouses first go at a bottom fermented beer and it's a winner even if an obvious attempt to cash in on the growing popularity of Helles in Franconia.
