Riedenburger Organic Lager is one of a range of beers brewed in Bavaria since the 19th century, although the “brauhaus” has focused on organic beer since 1994.
Sent to me by Vintage Roots, the 4.7% lager promised to be fruity with a bite in the finish. And it is quite nice. Not as fruity as I thought it would be but it was crisp and sharp, with very little aftertaste, although I had it very well chilled.
While it’s quite strong, it didn’t taste like it and I enjoyed the fresh taste. Packaged in a simple brown bottle with a plain label, it’s not the most fancy lager you can buy but worth a punt for a change. And it made a great fizzing noise when I opened the bottle.
Riedenburger Organic Lager is £1.95 for a 500ml bottle from Vintage Roots.
