Michelbacher Export (Adlerbrauerei Carl Schmetzer)

Brewery: Adlerbrauerei Carl Schmetzer
Town:
Michelbach an der Lücke (Waldhausen)
Style:
Export 5.4%
Color: deep golden

Head:
white, thinning
Nose:
malty, slight grain, mown grass
Body: medium

Palate:
balanced, lightly grainy, underlying hops
Finish: lingering

Served: on tap at the Gasthaus Adler in Rot am See

Impression: This seemed quite rich for a Helles, as it was sold by the server.  I thought it was the Export. It wasn’t sweet considering the malt factor and there was a nice subdued grain element. The finish was lingering and avoided being overly sticky with some underlying hops. It turned out to be the Export so was so stylistically more on target. Either way, a touch more hops would have made at least me happier.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
