Nikl-Bräu Weiße Eule @ Pretzfelder Keller

Nikl-Bräu Weiße Eule is a very refreshing Weizen with a semi-dry fruity palate and lingering finish. It's dangerously quaffable at 5.5%

Nikl-Bräu Michala @ Pretzfelder Keller

Nikl-Bräu Michala is an unfiltered dark Kellerbier with a hint of chocolate in the semi-dry palate. It's deceptive at 5.2%.

Nikl-Bräu Zwickl @ Pretzfelder Keller

Nikl-Bräu Zwickl is a balanced brew with some grain and underlying hops before a slightly bitter finish. It's a perfect beer for the Keller and at 4.7% can be drunk all day.

Hartleb Vollbier

Hartleb Vollbier is balanced unfiltered amber beer with malty palate with enough underlying hops to make it süffig. The lingering finish is just semi-bitter.

Först Premium

Först Keller-Pils is a dry fruity unfiltered Pils with a semi-bitter clean finish.

Stern-Bräu Festbier bottle

Stern-Bräu Festbier in 2021 in a bottle turned out to be quite different, a rich dark smoky treat.
