You can’t tell the dorfs without a scorecard

Knoblach Rauchsüdla

Knoblach's Rauchsüdla is a lightly smoky session beer with a semi-dry balanced palate and a semi-bitter moreish finish.

Knoblach Urlager

Knoblach's Urlager is their hoppy take on a Vienna Lager which is dangerously drinkable at 5.4%.

Knoblach Ur-Märzen

Knoblach's Ur-Märzen is the brewery's take on a classic style but as expected, a hoppier version.

Knoblach Ungespundetes Lager

Knoblach's Ungespundetes is a prime example of a rare style of beer only really produced in a small area around Bamberg.

Knoblach Dunkles Landbier

Knoblach's Dunkles Landbier is a dry hoppy brew but has a definite chocolate component in the mix.

Knoblach Rauchbier

Knoblach's Rauchbier is new smoky edition to Knoblach's line-up. It has a light but firm smokiness and a long dry bitter finish.

Knoblach Räuschla

Knoblach's Räuschla is a great introduction to smoke beer with a light smokiness to its well-balanced and dry palate.
