Impression: I shied away from this beer and perhaps brewery for years but have to say, this Rotbier is better than the competition in Nürnberg. Only Schanzenbräu holds up at all. It’s unusually dry for the style in the mold of Geyer’s, still my favorite. There’s both malt and underlying hops along with a hint of spice. It’s a deceptive 5.4% with a clean, dry finish that’s perfectly bitter. Glad I got it.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
