Impression: I was just here for a quick lunch stop and wouldn’t normally go for such a big beer at that hour but the kellerbier was a bit flat that day so decided to give it a try. I was glad I did. It was more of a Dopplebock from southern Bavaria than a true Franconian bock but it was very well made and better than many of its southern counterparts. It was full of both roast and a nice dry fruitiness, and had a very clean finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
