The light is the pride of the Franconians and Bavarians: In addition to the wheat, this round, tasty brew is a favorite in beer cellars and in beer gardens. Hardly any other brew goes so well with the local cuisine. The fine spiciness, the gentle tartness and the delicate freshness round off every meal perfectly and complement heavy, hearty and greasy dishes perfectly. A Schäuferla with dumplings, red cabbage and sauce also tastes wonderful without beer, but the light color provides a wonderful contrast and skilfully intervenes with the flavor of the Franconian classic with its aroma.
Because there are so many masterfully brewed Hellers on the beer market, competition is fierce. A good balance and balance make this style what it is, so the brewer cannot afford to make any mistakes.
The example from Binkert is absolutely flawless and very tasty. The Upper Franconian brewery knows about the challenges of an excellent beer and approached the style cautiously. After a phase of experimentation and tinkering, there is now a very successful light that appears in the MainSeidla series . The 4.9% brew is brewed with the Perle and Select hop varieties from Spalt and refined with selected malts. Time, manual work and the art of brewing form this light beer, which is impressive in its skilful simplicity.
