Impression: I’ve always enjoyed Zwergla from a bottle and have been equally at a loss for why it’s not on tap at the brewery tap. I’d read it was on tap at their Keller but it took me quite some time to get out there. I’m glad I finally made the effort as it is a richly malty beauty of a beer. It was nicely poured with a robust creamy head and deep chestnut hue. It had a malty nose with a touch of grain which much belied the palate. Though malty, it is certainly dry enough and the finish is moreish making it a dangerous 6% to drink at a Keller.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
