Moninger Ratsherrn Pilsner of Karlsruhe

I have not posted anything new here for awhile, but I do want to put in a plug for a great German beer if you happen to be in the Karlsruhe area.

Moninger Ratsherrn Pilsner.

Here is their web site.

Admittedly, I am speaking from my visit to the Karlsruhe area back around 1980, but I distinctly recall this beer. I even brought one of their glasses back to the US for my collection. Now I can't describe to you the taste as having a blueberry finish or being hoppy or tannins (maybe that's wine) or whatever the aficionados call it. I just remember it as clean, smooth, and having  that simple but great German pils taste. For the week or so I was there, I recall seeking out places to eat that served Moninger.

If you are in the area, you should do the same. Tell'em I sent you.

(They won't know what the Hell you're talking about, but they'll served you anyway.)
