Radeberger Pilsner

I think Budweiser has really ruined pilsners and – to a large extent – lagers for me. I tried a Radeberger Pilsner out of the mini-bar in our hotel and couldn’t get over how much more I’d rather have been drinking an ale.

The noble German hops really came through, backed by a subtly clean malt bill and all held up by the highly carbonate water of Bavaria. 

But I’d still rather have drank an ale (or at least a doppelbock or schwartzbier if I had to have a lager). I actually liked the picture I took from the hotel’s rooftop deck more than the beer. Oh well. “When in Munich…”
