|First visit to the Kellerwald for me this year yesterday, to take advantage of a TagesticketPlus to Bamberg, left over from the Saturday.|
And the details referred to above were: At the Greif Keller, there is both keg *and* gravity-barrel lager. Must specifically request "bairisch" for the latter. And the latter was fantastic yesterday, whereas in the past, IIRC, Barry & I both found it to be off compared to the barrel on down at the Brauereigaststätte. And I've noticed it to vary in amounts of waxiness & green apples.
Chap working yesteray said they don't necessarily *always* have the "bairisch" (bayerisch Anstich) on up there, specifically if there isn't enough trade going, and they'll run the risk of wasting a lot of it at the end of the night, if they tap one and then no one drinks it.
The keg stuff is from 50- or 30-litre kegs, not a tank. Though the Annafest beer comes in a tank. And it's a good opportunity for direct side-by-side comparison of keg & bairisch dispense, if one should be so inclined to undertake such a thing.
When it's good, it is such a lovely, clean, light Hell.
Two Seidla of that and off to Neder. Bit too much butterscotch in the Neder yesterday, but that's preferrable to the too-often present broccoli notes.
