anstei (2748) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 5, 2017
An average pale lager with standard malts & grassy hops with light citrus on top of a semi-sweet taste & light bitterness beer but I’m not sure it’s one that I’d describe as being a must try. It was a crisp & clean beer that was definitely easy to drink but at least part of this was down to it being so light & basic.
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2017 Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours clear paleish yellow. Aroma is light butter, malts, soft grassy hops. Body is light, crisply carbonated, but with a decent backbone, light butter flavours, some hay and corn. Thin palate, only carbonation left. As a simple everyday lager, good.
