Penning unfiltered Lagerbier (Vollbier)

Brewery: Penning Zeissler
Town: Hetzelsdorf

Color: unfiltered amber
Head: off-white, sudsy
Nose: fruity, malty

Body: medium, soft

Impression: I thought I was buying an old favorite but it turned out to be an unfiltered version of their flagship. The nose is quite fruity as is the palate. This along with the low carbonation makes for a very ale-like impression. The lingering finish is semi-dry, making it quite moreish. Lovely.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
