COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spezielles Bier für Hofer Katholiken Eine Hofer Brauerei unterstützt die beiden katholischen Pfarreien mit ihren Mitteln, damit die Jugendarbeit finanziell besser ausgestattet, Personalengpässe behoben und Pfarreigebäude modernisiert werden können. Das gemeinsame Bier "Konrad und Mariechen" soll das Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl der beiden Pfarreien stärken. Gerstensaft mit markanter roter Farbe Die Idee zu diesem besonderen Bier entstand erst vor wenigen Monaten und stieß bei der traditionsreichen Hofer Brauer-Familie Meinel-Hansen, die beiden katholischen Pfarreien verbunden ist, sofort auf offene Ohren. Monika Hansen - übrigens die jüngste Braumeisterin Deutschlands - hat ein leichtes Sommerbier mit fränkischem Hopfen und vier verschiedenen Malzen eingebraut. "Wir wollten mit dem Bier eine leichte rote Farbe erzeugen und so kommt ein dunkleres Malz hinzu, um die Farbe dann auch im Bier zu erreichen." Dieser Rot-Ton ist ganz bewusst gewählt, berichtet die 22-Jährige: "Konrad, die männliche Seite - das Bier - und durch die rote Farbe die weibliche Seite für Mariechen."

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2012
bottle from Bierzwerg. How unusal for the German beer scene, a top-fermented beer with only 3.8% abv. Looks lovely in the glass, chestnut-golden colour with a dense and creamy white head. Hoppy aroma with a touch of citrus fruit. Light-bodied yet full of flavour: good and clean malty base with hints of dark malts and a touch of lemony hops. Very, very nice.

kappldav123 (4960) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2013
Thanks to Willems Urenkel for that beer. Interesting name for a beer. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, but not washy. Fine malty with spicy hints. A bit wheaty-earty. Well balanced mild finish, quite drinkable. Not bad!

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
(bottle) Clear, amber to copper colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Cara-malty and herbal and slightly metallic hoppy notes with traces of citrus in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a crisp carbonation. Mildly cara-malty base with traces of black tea, accompanied by herbal hops; slim but not watery herbal hoppy finish with delicately fruity notes in the aftertaste. Likeable, but not outstanding. Reminds of a light Altbier. 16.XI.12

0,5 l bottle. Dark gold, clear, very low carbonation, good looking white head. Starts flat roasted malty and very grainy. Continues a little bit lower. Okay for a low alcohol beer.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle(thanks to the Lake of Constance!): Amber coloured, stable creamy and lacy white head, toasty-fruity nose, some subdued hops detectable; mild bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied as expected; delicate toasty-caramelly finish with a dryish-hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, worth a try…
