Brauwastl may be the new kid on the block at Annafest but they are quickly being recognized at the best beer at the Fest too. Though malt forward in the Fest mold, it's got ample hopping well into the moreishly dry finish.
Eichhorn Winterbier is a Craft Beer take on a Festbier but not a particularly good one.
Greif Bock is a balanced richly malty brew with plenty of hops for a lingering, semi-dry, semi-bitter moreish finish.
Greif Edel-Pils is malty for the style but there is fair hopping, making for a very sessionable beer closer to a hoppy Helles. The lingering semi-dry finish is moreish.
Greif alkoholfrei Hell is a surprisingly tasty no alcohol version of their Hells with a balanced palate and semi-dry, semi-dry finish.
Neder Pils is a fine cross between a traditional Pils and a Helles with more body and malt than the former and more hops than the latter. It's a tough balancing act but it pulls it off.
Greif Kellerbier is a balanced malty brew with enough dryness to make it perfect as a Bierkeller session beer.
Hebendanz Export Hefe Weißbier is a fruity wheat beer with a refreshing appearance. The sample I got was oddly bitter, seemingly from the yeast.
Hebendanz Bock is a richly malty deep golden Bock which is oddly only 6.1%.
Hebendanz Jubiläums Festbier is a commemorative amber beer first brewed in 2005 to celebrate Forchheim's 1200th anniversary.
