I'm not familiar with the first one.  

Meister is a very soft, malty, rich, copper colored Franconian vollbier that I personally love.

Nikl is okay.  Decent beers.  A newer brewery.  Nothing ground shaking but respectable and enjoyable IMO.

First?  Do you mean Forst of Drugendorf?  If so I really like that one.

Reblitz is decent.  They brew a small variety of beers including a Rauch.  

Hoh.  I didn't like it at the keller at all but at the gastatte I thought it was pretty good if nothing spectacular.

Hartmann.  I've not been there since around 2013 or so and Jason had mentioned previously on this forum that they are no longer brewing onsite and he has good local info to base that on even if it doesn't appear that way looking at their site.  In the past when I've been there I enjoyed their beers especially the "Erbshank" Dunkel.  The rauch and pils I thought were good too but I particularly liked that Dunkel.  However, things may have changed since.  I know when we visited the owner, and I had a chance to talk to him for bit, was very old and I'm not sure he'd even still be around.
