HERRNBRAU WEIZENBOCK

Herrnbrau Weizenbock. Really rich colour, more like a dunkel but Herrnbrau doesn't do dunkel (just a weiss-style dunkel).

They do this. Unlike the beers from perennial big brother Munich, the Ingolstadt-based Herrnbrau draws its water from the Danube River (it's the Isar in Munich or, if you're Augustiner, you have your own well).

It might be part of why this tastes so different from anything you'll get from Munich. Ingolstad has always gone its own way and tried to be a rival for the great state capital in the south, even if it's really just a village with a big car company (Audi) in it.

It smells a lot like caramel and malt and still-kicking yeast, and delivers a head that sticks around until the bottom.

It tastes like wheat and biscuits and bananas and alcohol, and it's probably too sweet for a lot of people. I'm one of them.

 

6/10
