Jürgens Rotbier is a balanced richly malty Rotbier with a nice spicy character and aromatic hops in the nose. The lingering finish is semi-dry and semi-bitter.
Landwehr-Bräu Hell is a malt forward golden brew with a grainy palate and lingering semi-dry finish. On tap at the Landwehr am Turm in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
Köslauer Rennweg Brauer Weißbier was brewed specifically for their opening Weißwürstfrühstück on the Sunday of their 3rd annual Oktoberfest. They only did 40 liters so you had to arrive early to partake. It was a nice looking Weizen with lots of banana in the nose. It had a balanced fruity palate with a good yeasty quality and just a hint of banana. One of the drier examples. Quite nice.
The Köslauer Rennweg Brauer threw their third annual Oktoberfest on the first weekend of the name month in 2023. It featured a Weisswurst Frühstück with their own home-brewed Weißbier along with lots of other homemade goodies of both the beer and food variety. A small entertaining trio walked around providing the perfect music accompaniment. Don't miss it in 2024.
Köslauer Rennweg Brauer Vollbier was brewed as a hopeful Bock and sold as a Vollbier due to lower than expected alcohol. This is nonetheless a very nice rich Festbier with a rich malty palate tinged with ample underlying hops. The lingering finish is moreishly dry for the style.
Roßfelder Brauhaus Kellerbier has the unmistakable taste of Franconia, like a walk in the countryside in a Krug. It is brewed by the small communal brewery in the village of Roßfeld in Upper Franconia and I sampled it at their very first Braufest in 2023.
Bräuhaus Dörflis Hausbier has the unmistakable taste of Franconia, like a walk in the countryside in a Krug. It is brewed by the small communal brewery in the village of Dörflis in Lower Franconia and I sampled it at their Braufest 2023.

Landwehr-Bräu Toppler Pils is another Helles in disguise of a Pils, not untypical in Franconia. I found their Edel oddly more hoppy in flavor if not the nose. I suggest their Altfränkisch Dunkel but if you must drink a lighter color beer, I'd still with the Helles.
Landwehr-Bräu Altfränkisch is a classic example of the style with a balanced palate and semi-dry lingering finish
