Schrüfer Dunkles Vollbier

Head: off white, rocky

Palate: dry fruity with a hint of roast
Finish: long dryish and bitter
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: Took me two shots at this brewery to get in the door and the hype was considerable even before standing in the small village for an hour for my bus back to Bamberg WITHOUT having a beer. So, when I did get in, it would have been easy to be disappointed but neither I nor my very understanding wife were. It was was soft and fruity, with a nice dryish finish. Oddly enough, this was a seasonal and the Helles Vollbier was the regular offering. It’s a good thing I had one of those too. You never know when you’ll be back to such a hard to get into place!
Next beer or back to the beer list.
