Reindler Bräu Hell

Brewery: Reindler-Bräu
Color: golden

Head: white
, sudsy
Nose: faint grain

Body: medium

Palate: balanced, grainy, malty, underlying hops
, hint of grass
Finish: clean, semi-dry, bitter

Served: from a bottle bought at the Brauereigasthof Reindler

Impression: They didn’t have this listed on the menu in the pub but on checking out, I asked about it and the owner fetched one for my six-pack to go. I’m glad I asked because this is a rare hoppy Helles. It’s got plenty of malt along with the grainy aspect you’d expect. There’s even a hint of grass but the hops are there from the start and much like all their beers, they are prominent. I don’t find them overwhelming but imagine some would liken this to a Pils, missing the sure malt base lying just below. The finish is probably a tad more bitter than is typical for the style but it’s clean and dry, something I often find lacking in ones I encounter further south. Easy to drink at 4.9%.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
