A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #492 – St. Erhard – Kellerbier

Authentic beer, Authentic Singing, Authentic numbers and Authentic enjoyment.

St. ERHARD® isn’t just beer – It’s beer culture!

Chosen mainly for the packaging which is amongst the simplest I’ve seen this is  St. Erhard Brewed at Brauerei Rittmayer Hallerndorf in the style that is  Zwickel/Keller/Landbier and they are in Bamberg, Germany

330ml bottle, 5% ABV, making it 150 calories and 1.3 standard drink units. this carried a 19 IBU rating.

St. Erhard is the flagship beer brand representing true beer excellence from the home of the beer.

Simple. Beer.

Simple. Beer.

As a genuine Franconian “Kellerbier” St. Erhard is brewed and bottled in Bavaria according to the “Reinheitsgebot“.

We are driven by the passion to serve the highest level of sophistication in brewing to a global audience. 

St. Erhard isn’t just beer – It’s beer culture!

There is a bunch of less than complimentary things about this beer to be found in comments, but then they might miss the point that this isn’t a ‘normal’ beer to be compared to other beers they might have had. Who knows? I don’t.

Wet biscuit type aroma, which would be par.

St.Erhard KellerbierIt looks really good in the bottle and in the glass, clear as a bell, and a rich chestnut colour,  it pours with a reasonable head, added to which it looks nicely carbonated.

Aroma is nothing to write home about.

Richer in taste than a lager, slightly sweeter and tang-ier.  It’s not what you think it tastes like and I’m reaching for a beer similar to give you an idea, but failing.

Less hoppy than say a Pilsner and sweeter with more malts in it this seems to be an ‘everyman’ beer,

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 a of its things from the thing.

The double dip review

  1. Am I enjoying it? Both yes and no, I think it might be too malty sweet though.
  2. Would I have another? Yes probably, its a nice beer for sitting in the sun.
  3. Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? Of course, but not for any discourse that would take ages because you’d get bored of this I think.

I’m listening to “Depford Goth”  which as always is new and challenges me to drink new beer and listen to new musics.  This is a track “Feel Real” which actually isn’t on the album I’m listening to, but if you’re on Spotify the Album I am listening to  “Songs” is here http://t.co/wMtu2RMIku

It has that low key melodic lyric moodiness about it.

ZWICKEL/KELLER/LANDBIER

Three related, minor, lager styles most common in Franconia. Essentially, these are hoppier versions of a helles, served with natural carbonation and unfiltered – they are the lager worlds answer to real ale. Kellerbier will on average be hoppier than zwickelbier. There is also Landbier, which is more malt-accented, may be filtered, but is similarly lacking in carbonation. Gravity is standard, hop rates ranging from 22-40 IBUs, the colour from pale to reddish-amber and the palate should be balanced with a hop accent.
