Neumarkter Lammsbräu Schwarze

Neumarkter Lammsbräu is a traditional Bavarian brewery. The only difference which distinguishes them from the other breweries is the fact that they produce organic beers. They are sold with the seal of Bioland and are available at Basic supermarkets.

From time to time I buy one of their beers. This time it’s the Schwarze - a dark unfiltered wheat beer. [Schwarze = German, means black] I had to pour it in very slow as the foam building was that strong that being too fast led to over spilling. Once in the glass I first noticed the yeasty smell, which reminded me of a fermenting cellar I used to work in. (Some stories made their way up to my mind, but they will have to be told on another day.) I took another deep breath and got some more flavours: strong malt, caramel, fruity and floral.

The first nip brought a refreshing, sweet, little sour taste with a slight bitter note at the end. The refreshing part was perhaps a little too much as I expected more body.

It’s a standard dark wheat beer which goes well with a German brotzeit.
