All German Beers are highly recommended. Unlike most of their American counterpart,s Gemrn brews are made under the strict German Purity Law of 1516 which does not allow adjuncts, rice, or corn flakes, etc to be used as fermentables - thus giving them a much richer and cleaner taste and profile. Only barley or wheat grains may be used with water and yeast - that's what real beer is! Many watered down American beers rely on idiotic sales pitches of 'great taste / less filling' (when taste is exactly what they lack). Others seem to think that because they're cold, that's why we should drink them! Code blue, frost brewed, 'because we know you like cold beer' infer that temperature is a flavor, when in fact the colder the beer, the less taste is has. Fortunately, there are more and more American micros that actually get it and brew beers for people whop appreciate the taste of beer - not water.
