Munich is in Finland - Keisari Münchner Premium

Keisari Munchener Premium

When we visited the Nokian Panimo for its 25 years anniversary we had the opportunity to buy their beers for a discount price. We basically bought one beer from each of theirs. When we got the IBCs for our biogas plant delivered I gave one away as present. So it is now the time to start reviewing one after another. I start with the Keisari Münchner.

Pured in a glass the color looks amber / dark. Perhaps a little to amber for a Munich type lager. But anyway, the foam stayed pretty stable. Foam stability is one of the most important criteria when it comes to lager or pilsen type beers. It gives you some hindsight on the malt, hops and the fatty acids / protein composition. But that is far to far an excursion into brewing chemistry.

The first nip gives you the flavour and taste you would expect from a Munich type beer. It is sweet while the body itself stays balanced. It comes with a decent light bitterness, something we would have expected as well. At the end it is fast, and its taste doesn't stay for very long.

Overall, this is a very decent, well produced beer. It is a classic with no big flavour experiments. But who would expect that from a Lager?
