Riedbach

Impression: A friend picked this up for me and very glad he did. It’s another winner from Franken Bräu. Gorgeous pour with an incredible rocky head and a nice nose of roast and caramel. Roast and light caramel in the palate as well before the lingering semi-dry bittersweet finish. A true Franconian Dunkel. Odd that it’s sold in a 33cl bottle, I could go for more of it right now.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
