Impression: I’d been to this brewery many years ago and never managed to get back until recently. They are most noted for their dark dry Landbier which I was happy to find at the Sandkerwa recently but their winning a recent Silver Medal for their seasonal Rauchbier was all the final incentive I need to get myself back here. The pub was bustling and full of walkers, perfect for a downing a Rauchbier. It came out looking the part, dark with a rocky head. The first whiff let me know it would be a smoky delight and it did not disappoint. Besides the obvious flavors, it had quite a distinct bitterness about it that was not unpleasant in the least. If fact, it made it quite quaffable.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
