4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught in the brewery’s Biergarten. A pilsner in the dominant Franconian usage, which is to say light, well hopped in an historical a sense and crisp-edged. Oh that all were like this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colour with thick pils head. Hoppy-grassy aroma. The herbal hops are nice, with moderate bitterness. Pale malts are refined, clean and understated. I was thirsty after a tough ride into the wind and this hit the spot.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden, brief head. Grassy spicy nose. Dry and crisp with rounded moutfheel and fairly light body. Quite bitter finish. Less flavourful and less inviting than the zwickel, but still a really good pilsener.

Bottle, from Vroni’s in Bamberg. Gold, moderate white head and good condition. Low but pleasant hop aromas and faint trace of grain. Soft and sweet in the mouth with the grainy malt now dominating a gentle hop flavour. Sweet malt lingers longest in the finish.
