Spring in Franken
Posted by Barry on 2019-04-24 07:08:28
My annual spring visit began with a gentle run out to Spezial; I thought that the U wasn't quite as flavourful as before but you can definitely get a faint 'rauch' taste in the first mouthful. However, the Lager is in excellent form and must be among the best available. Nipped up to Schlenkerla - one Seidla was excellent but very crowded with sightseers so made do with that. Tuesday was Tag des Bieres - pretty much as usual, with Frank & Robert in ceremonial attire. Following correspondence here re Klosterbraeu, tried a Schwaerzla, quite tasty and much more highly carbonated than the limp Braunbier that I had in their Stube. It was ok if not a little uninteresting, specially compared to the many dark beers that are appearing in the UK nowadays. Then headed to Spezial to meet up the usual suspects and ending up, by tradition, in the 'Western Bar' in Faessla, with Frank and Grigor. A good time was had by all, I believe. The weather is lovely at the moment but turning cooler and wetter on Friday. This is expected to last for a week or so and the forecast for Prague is pretty similar. Shame.
