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.
