I laughed wholeheartedly at you referencing "only criticism that Franconian beers are too strong'. As akward as it feels (seen from abroad), it's obviously true. And you're obviously right that it's linked to taxation, like most things beer, before it becomes cultural.

Surprised to hear that Spezial U is that low in percent, the few times I've had it, I've grouped it along Heckel, in the pristine & rounded sweetish Pils malt type of Franconian beers possibly obscuring its strength.

Quickly checking, I realise, that the beers I enjoy most having a few plus glasses of (Roppelt, Lieberth, Schlenkerla Helles, Eichhorn, Gradl, Geyer, Hartleb, Spezial and Schenkerla on the edge) are all at or below 5%. Witzgall Landbier the exception, Monchsambacher and Heckel top out at 3 Bechers usually.

Lovely one, who would I like to see brew a Einfach? A ~8-10 Plato beer?
Will start a new thread!
