Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 86: Altenmünster Brauer Bier Urig Wurzig

A bottle capped like this causes high expectations!

Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow. The head is large and foamy, and fades away slowly.

First Sip: Some sweet malts mixed in with bready yeast and a little grain. There is a mild lingering hops bitterness that gives a dry finish. Carbonation tingles on the tongue. The malt flavours grow stronger as the glass warms but the hops seems to fade.

This beer is pretty light on taste; it's rather nice, not bland at all, but a bit disappointing after the awesomeness of the bottle. I wouldn't say it's anything special but it is certainly quaffable in quantities. A nice, highly drinkable beer, but not a yummy beer. Nice beer burps, though.

Oooh I could go for a plate of currywurst and chips about now.
