Starkenberger Gold Lager

Today let’s talk about the Austrian Starkenberger Gold Lager beer from Schloss Starkenberg Brewery. It’s located in the Tyrolean town of Tarrenz. The word “Schloss” means that the brewery is located in a castle. And it is indeed a very beautiful place with a brewery and an inn.

They modestly say about themselves that they are the only brewery in Austria making “barley juice” without chemical additives. Maybe they really make natural, alive and unfiltered barley juice, but as for the beer (they wrote Gerstensaft for a reason), there are hundreds more Austrian breweries brewing beer “without chemicals. And what does “no chemistry” mean? But, this is a topic for a separate talk, but for now let’s return to the Starkenberger beer.

Starkenberger Gold Lager (Austria, Tarrenz) – 5/11 Aroma, alas, lithe. The taste is empty, malty. The aftertaste has some hops and it’s dry, tart. This beer might be okay in its fresh form – refreshing, bitter, but what I have in my glass is pretty mediocre. C grade.

There was another variety from Starkenberger in the store. It seems to be a bock or festbier. I will try it if possible.
