Mürsbach

Fastenbier 5.9%

Impression: This is the brewery’s first stab at a Fastenbier and given that their Doppelbock is 10.5%, it’s welcome and more approachable at 5.9%. Three different caramel malts give the dark brew its mahogany color. There’s some toffee and bread in the malty palate but the herbal hop nose is a precursor to its nicely dry finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
