Brew Review Score Card
Lager - Strong - Double Bock
The Weininger Brewery is proud of the most important ingredient of their beer, their pure mountain spring water. Set in the Upper Bavaria region of Berchtesgadener Land, a stunning region of Germany. A brewery has been on the site since the 1600s and has been owned by the Wieninger family since 1813. Still managed by the same family to the current day it is a brewery with a wealth of experience.
Such a heritage behind it meant that this was eagerly anticipated on our taste challenge. It hints at greatness with a wonderful rich colour but the nose lacked body. Sadly, the same lack of punch came to pass for the taste as well.
This hints at something of superior quality but fails to get the juices flowing. Obviously drinkable, with sweet notes of carameland dark grapes. The alcohol is masked by the smooth malty finish and the carbonation is a surprise, but otherwise this is rather forgettable.
Deep Ruby, with a brief tan head
a faint metallic burr
Toasted malt, lacks complexity
Mild bitterness, no lasting impression
Very drinkable between more formidable beers. Faint and non-impressionable.
Enjoyable but forgettable
