around the world in 80 beers episode 198: Knappstein Reserve Lager

Knappstein Reserve Lager

Pours a clear very pale yellow with a small/medium head that lasts for ages. lots of carbonation visible.

First sip: Whoa. I mean, mild malt and toffee sweetness, with quite a lot of fruit, almost grapey, flavours. Hops is mild but very long lasting and can be tasted from sip to long after the swallow. Medium mouth-feel with a nice carbonation tingle on the tongue.

If it weren't for the hops, I'd think this was a fizzy riesling. It is extremely drinkable and goes down very easily. This can be a problem - at 5.6% this can result in wobbly boots. A very yummy beer!
