Impression: I’d had this Rauchbier in 2012 when Fischer was still brewing and though I’d heard it was now contract-brewed by Rittmayer in Hallerndorf, I wanted to see how it’s fared. This one was much better than the Kellerbier with a light smokiness adding some bitterness and making it an overall more enticing beer. From the samples I had in September 2020, if you only have time for one, go for the Rauchbier.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
