Pic(k) of the Week: Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils, on draught

Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils, on draught
The Rothaus Tannenzäpfle 1 is the absolute classic among our beers - and has been since 1956. That is why it is also the namesake and figurehead of the Gäpfle family. The best aromatic hops from Tettnang and the Hallertau as well as local malt made from summer barley and the purest spring water from the Black Forest give Rothaus Tannenzäpfle its uniquely spicy and fresh taste.

Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils — served out-of-doors on a spring afternoon, on draught in a brewery serving glass, on the pub patio at My Parents Basement 3, in Avondale Estates, Georgia, USA. 7 May 2023.


Yes, but how does the beer taste?

For having traveled so far, the beer was in good form. Brilliant clarity under a long-lasting white collar of foam. Slightly grassy nose; subtle cracker-wafer malt; hints of honey and green apple; subdued tree-sap and mowed-grass hops; dry, slightly sulfury finish. A glorious German pilsner. Delightful.

No scores; only descriptions.

  • 1 Words matter:
    • Tannenzäpfle = German for "fir cone."
