Sauer (Röttenbach) Export

golden beer in glass with bottle
Sauer Export

Brewery: Sauer
white, creamy
Nose: grainy, light hops

Palate: balanced, dry, fruity, hint of grain, underlying hops

Finish: clean, semi-dry, semi-bitter

Served: from a bottle at the Hopfenhaus

Impression: I made a special trip out to Röttenbach mostly to drink the Sauer beers on tap so was disappointed to be told all beer was from bottles. Once I got over this, I found this Export to be quite nice. It’s balanced with a malty moreishness which manages to be dry and fruity as well. The clean semi-bitter finish makes it quite quaffable at 4.9%.  Hopefully, it’s on tap the next time I’m in the area.

Next beer or back to the beer list.

    1. It was just sad. I can accept that the old pub is gone, replaced by something more likely to stem the tide but not having your beer on tap just in front of the brewery isn’t really acceptable to me. It’s tough also when you jump off your third train to hop on a bus to get there! haha Not sure if you’ve noticed but if you click on the Brewery: Sauer link, you go to a write up on the brewery and it’s food/beer. More explanation of my feelings are there as well. Thanks for stopping by, Don.
