Beer enthusiasts should brew beer - Helles Rieser Landbier

Helles Rieser Landbier

Beer enthusiasts from the Nördlinger Ries have created the receipt for this beer. According to the label they created a traditional Bavarian “Helles”. Ok, Helles it is today.

I first took some photos. It always takes some seconds to get good photos without using flashlight. I don't like reflections from the flashlight in the picture.

All glasses where dirty and ready for the dish washer, though I had to take my Erlenmeyer flask. I poured some beer into it and checked the foam settling. I sometimes even take the time it takes for the foam to settle. This one has good foam stability. Hey, I’m not Nibem (Head Retention analysis method) but it gives me some idea about proteins and the mashing procedure and the flavor matrix.

The phone rang and the foam settled without me taking the time. I had to pour in again. The second run got me a mouthful of tasty beer. It's tangy, with sweet- and bitterness and some astringency. The flavor completes with a floral, malty and caramel smell.

These beer enthusiasts should get together more often. I'd like more of this Helles Rieser Landbier from Ankerbräu.

Despite the terrifying image,

Despite the terrifying image, I'm sure I could avoid any neamthgris after a couple of bottles of this! Clearly zombies are not just for Halloween. Best get sourcing some brains as an accompaniment! (Zombies do eat brains, right?)
