Pubs at railway stations are, more often than not, not partcularly nice places to hang out. There are people waiting for delayed trains, some customers having a drink or a bite to eat before either boarding the train or finding their way home by other means. And there are people hanging around with nowhere in particular to go.
At Augsburg station, there seemed to be a few regular customers, apart from that the quite cavernous pub/restaurant/waiting room was largely empty. When I passed by earlier in the day, the outside tables were all occupied, but by now they seemed to have gone home – or perhaps found a beer garden elsewhere.
They have only one home brew, an unfiltered Zwickl .
Yet another Helles. OK, I guess I’ll give it a try.
If looks were everything, this beer would score a perfect 10. This is a place where the marketing men in their slightly too large suits should go to set up their photo shoots.
The taste, however, was more on the dull side. Malt and cereals, some aroma hops, but in low amounts. And no crispness in the finish. Time to find the train back to Munich, no need for another round.
