Altstathof Rotbier bottle and in a glass

The small red one - Altstadthof Rotbier

Altstadthof Rotbier

For Christmas I got a nice package of different beers from the Nürnberg Area. In November I went there and shopped at the Bierothek, a bottle shop. I had a very nice discussion with their sales person about the KBS and left the shop with 6 beers. 

The first one from the Christmas package I opened was Altstadthof's Rotbier. I liked their rustic style and so I gave it a try.

Big mistake. That beer had gone sour. My evening: completely ruined. I checked the best before date: still weeks left. I hate that moment when I get a bad beer, I really do. It's like everything went cold, as if all happiness had gone from the world. 

That was now the 3rd beer in a row that had serious problems with it's stability. I need a good one now. Really.
