A Salty Patch on the Unterfranken Express

Lower Franconia is a lovely bucolic area dotted with small hamlets and a surprising number of regional breweries not to be missed by the intrepid beerwanderer. This details a road trip to Strecks Brauhaus in Ostheim, Rother-Bräu in Roth, Pax-Bräu in Oberelsbach and the Wittelsbacker Turm Bräu at its namesake tower.

Strecks Brauhaus Bio Helles is a balanced example of the style with a lightly grainy nose and hoppier palate than befits a true Helles. That said, it's got an easy drinkability that everyone will find appealing.
