St. Georgen-Bräu Landbier

Brewery: St. Georgen
Style: Landbier 4.9
Head: off-
white, creamy, rocky
richly malty, some roast, Spalter hops
Body: medium

balanced, rich malt, some roast, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, semi-dry, semi-bitter
Served: from a bottle bought in Bayreuth

Impression: Another gorgeous pour reminiscent of their relatively dark Hellerbock with a deep amber hue and rocky off-white head. Spalter hops in the nose and balanced palate. It’s in the old Franconian lager style which is a bit of a dying breed. It’s generally a simple malt forward style but this one reveals its Spalter hops as it warms. You’re unlikely to find this on tap so worth picking up a bottle. Not everyone is but if a fan of this hop variety, this is a nice example of a dark beer featuring them.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
