Impression: It would have been easy to stick with the Hausbier but a friend had told me the Rotbier was the one to have. Again, it was gorgeously poured. This is one place that makes sure you get your beer with a great head. The deep amber hue was enticing and had a deceptively dry palate despite being primarily malty. The hint of butterscotch wasn’t intruding and actually mingled well with the underlying hops which dried things out without being overly bitter. With less alcohol than a MĂ€rzen, this was an easy drinking session beer. That said, I’d say the Hausbier is the one to stick with.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
