Advent Beer 17: Hirter 1270

There is nothing particularly distinguishing about this beer, but it pours a delightful amber colour with a wispy head, and is a smooth, malty lager with a nice mouthfeel. The malt gives it that nice 'liquid bread' character I love about German and Austrian beers, but there is a hint of caramel near the bottom of the glass as it begins to warm.

Austria has been extremely ably represented in this advent calendar, and this beer continues this trend. A nice sampling from a brewery big enough to have its own iPhone app.

  1. Really impressed with this one. Nothing complex, but I'd certainly drink it again. I may be slightly biased, as this was my birthday beer. Coincidentally from a brewery founded 700 years before my birth.
