Beers from the German brewery Memminger and the Austrian brewery Eggenberg have been on my blog many times, but every now and then there are new brews that I haven’t tried. Fresh catches from FoodCity are Memminger Premium and Eggenberg Naturbursch. Both I got for 115 rubles.
Memminger Premium (Memmingen, Germany) – 5,1/11,5 Pils is not the most typical style for Bavaria, although there are decent representatives there too. I would not call Memminger “one of the best” breweries, but one of the largest. Therefore I did not expect much. Nevertheless, we are faced with a very pleasant pils! Floral and honey aroma. The taste is malty and full. Good grassy bitterness in the aftertaste. Rated B+.
Eggenberg Naturbursch (Austria, Vorchdorf) – 4.9/11.75 Bio-Zwickel. I did not quite understand the passage about Naturbursch (if you know German, tell me). The literal translation is “natural boy” or “natural boy”. The official website states that –
“Nature refreshes more than just boys! The perfect refresher for the first warm days of spring.”
All in all, a spring beer for boys and more :) I wouldn’t classify it as a zwickel, but as an unfiltered pilsner. On the other hand, what is unfiltered beer with Germans and Austrians? That’s right – zwikel (aka kellerbier)! And it doesn’t matter if it’s heavily hopped or not. Here, however, a hoppy, slightly grassy aroma is noticeable. Dry floury flavor. In the aftertaste is a good herbaceous and even astringent bitterness. The yeast is almost not noticeable, although their contribution.
Indeed, a spring, refreshing beer. A- rating.
