The beer were from the Thuringia and Franken regions, of many different styles, and also of high quality. Four beers ended up on the same average rating, and since the final score now is too complex to calculate by hand we are not yet certain of what beer that won this rating. The most likely candidates are: Kapuziner Weisse, a great hefeweizen from Kulmbach, Bavaria, that scored the best points ever for a wheat beer. Delicious stuff! Apoldaer Maibock from Apolda, Thuringia. I'm by far no expert on Maibocks, but I really did enjoy this one. Also Würzburger Hofbräu Pilsner, a pils with real bite in the bitterness was very appreciated.
We also made the "important" decision to allow Swedish beer of klass I and klass II (that is beer with less alcohol than 3.5%) to be rated. The first one we rated was Spendrup's Fatöl Special, klass II which expectedly didn't do very well...
