A most amazing Pils! Had I not had a couple beer experts and "geeks" along who agreed with me, I might of thought it was just me. We also tried it bottled and it seemed even more aromatic! It was a love affair, can't wait to get back.

Notes from 2002 - Pils: Hoppy with sulfer, dry, assertive bitterness, long finish, good carbonation. Dunkles: sharp caramel flavor - not well integrated.

Aufsesser Dunkel has a malty but alcoholic nose, with a nice rich amber color. Deep roasted malt flavor early yields to a hoppy finish and aftertaste. A slightly burnt malt character detracts somewhat from the overall impression.

More like a modern restaurant with more tourists than locals behinde the glasses. The brewery has three nice orange-brown beers - Dunkel, Festbier and Bock - with a bready maltiness and a dry aftertaste. They are quite similar, but I especially liked the Bock. In my opinion, the Wiezen and Pils have less character.

Just wanted to add a review since there has not been one for several years. Visited today as part of the beer walk in this area to four breweries. It was a sunny Sunday in June. Although busy enough, this place was not nearly as busy as the others in the area -- for some reason all the motorcycle people don't have this as part of their stop. Just fine with me. The beer was typical Franconian and good.
