Unsolicited advice: My favorite beer in Heidelberg, Germany

Fresh, full-flavored, fruity yet tangy; the Helles at Brauhaus Vetter in Heidelberg is one of my favorite beers.

All their artisan beer is made on-site and they usually offer three to four varieties: an unfiltered Pilsner (Helles), a dark wheat beer (Dunkles Weizenbier), a stout (Vetters 33) and a seasonal special.
