Schanzenbräu Rotbier poured in a glass

My first Schanzenbräu won't be my last

Schanzenbräu Rotbier

So, I went to the super market the other day, into the beer section and I came across a rather odd piece of beer. It is called Schanzenbräu Rotbier and I wondered how it would taste. So I took it with me and poured into a glass.

I noticed its stable foam straight from the beginning - stable and fine, sitting on a light reddish body. From the first nip I got its strong body, which I guess comes from the 3 different malt types used. This full body with emphasis on sweetness stays stable throughout the drinking experience and is accompanied by a strong bitterness at the end. Its mouth-fullness, sweetness and hops go together very well. Let me have another one from Schanzenbräu soon, because this one was excellent.

One of those beers you could drink more of, just because it it simply is that good.
