Three related lager styles most common in Franconia. Essentially, these are hoppier versions of a helles, served with natural carbonation and unfiltered - they are the lager world’s answer to real ale. Kellerbier will on average be hoppier than zwickelbier. There is also Landbier, which is more malt-accented, may be filtered, but is similarly lacking in carbonation. Gravity is standard, low to moderate hop rates, the colour from pale to reddish-amber and the palate should be balanced with a hop accent. Zoiglbier, common to Oberpfalz, is also included in this category.
