COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schremser Roggenbier is the rediscovery of a beer speciality, which was traditional up until the 15th century when it was then banned. Top-fermented, Schremser Roggen stands out due to its intensive full-bodied taste. Slightly fruity to start then pithy with a long aftertaste. 11.9°

heavy (2120) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2009
09/01 0.5 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured slightly haze golden to amber colored body with medium sized head. Nice and strong yeasty ale aroma with scentes such as banana, clove, some other spices. Mostly spicy flavor, some peppers, cloves, honey, banana, vanilla...reminds of a spiced wheat ale. Tasty, a bit sweetish and complex with medium body. Pleasant sweet and long finish with some lemon there. It was the top beer of the day, but I was not so impressed as my two fellows. Although completely different than other roggen I’ve tried so far, this is surely better.

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 11, 2009
Bottled(500ml). -dark orange coloured, medium sized white head, mild spicy nose. Very complex beer. Well spiced and fruity with touch of vanilla (ice cream) and banana. Light spicy and bitter finish, and pleasant long-lasting aftertaste. So far the best Austrian Roggen.

0.5l bottle courtesy of ogivlado who brought it from Austria (thanks!), shared with him and heavy
Poured a murky peach colour with a small but thick white head that went away slowly. Intensive perfumey clove nose... I usually don’t like them much in my beer but this one was remarkably nice. It’s lactic too and some light banana can be found as well. Nice. Coming in with somewhat low/no expectation this was a pleasant surprise, and the taste was even better. Strong cloves, remarkably tasty spice notes, ending lemony and peppery. The lemon morphs into elder from time to time. Extremely weak banana. Some hop bitterness too. It’s dry and remarkably complex for the style. Long bitter spicey aftertaste. The balance between the intensive spice and the lemony bitterness is just perfect. I shouldn’t like it all that much because of the spiciness and yet I do Just wow. We might’ve just hit a great bottle but I really feel that this is underrated a lot.

Comments: An interesting and rare Austrian beer. It’s a yeasty, spicy, phenolic ale with cloves, citrus and melon notes. Quite sweet though and a bit fatiguing in that regard. Absent hops.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle, GBBF 2004. Hazy amber, low white head and moderate condition. Gently wheaty in the nose with some low phenols, more intensly phenolic in the mouth with some sweet banana coming through. Short but pleasantly sweet and yeasty in the finish.

Geiserich (3311) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2004 Bottled:
Yeasty aroma, sweet candies, blackcurrant aroma but only light banana notes. Dark golden to orange color, hazy with huge creamy head. Very smooth and yeasty. Sweetness, rye aroma and some acid. The 2nd rye beer in Austria. This one is very close to a wheat and quite nice.
