My opinion on a variety of beers.

Neuschwansteiner

Neuschwanstein is probably the most famous landmark in Bayern, Deutschland (Bavaria, Germany). It is the inspiration for the Disney fairy tale castle. Built by der Märchenkönig (the fairytale king) Ludwig II as a homage to Richard Wagner. Brewed by Hirschbräu, Neuschwansteiner  is excellent lager well worth a try, like the Schloss (castle) which stands above other castles this beer stands above other beers. Golden in colour this lager is smooth and very enjoyable with a hint of sweetness. I recommend this one, I have found reviews of this beer mixed but as Ludwig would say “I wish to remain an eternal enigma to myself and to others.” Oh and his nickname as the ‘Mad King’ there is no evidence of any kind of mental illness, which was likely fabricated to explain his mysterious death. Neuschwansteiner das echte (Neuschwansteiner the real). And if you are wondering about the  swans on the label neu-new, schwan-swan, stein-stone, the er means from there like Berliner.
