Rosenheimer Spezialitätenbrauerei GmbH "Chiemseer Braustoff"
,5L brown glass bottle, "Mindestens haltbar bis: 31.01.18 F" and sampled on 20.09.17

From Rosenheim am Inn comes a beautiful Münchner-style helles lager named for the Chiemseer lake. It's got fingerprint-through-the-glass clarity in its golden body, and a short head of bright white foam that holds well and leaves some nice lacing behind. The aroma is fresh and bright with lightly sweetish grainy malt and floral and softly grassy hops. The flavor follows and it's not hard to imagine having one of these either on a sun drenched summer day looking out over the beautiful green and gold fields of southern Bavaria, or in front of a crackling fire on a cold winter day after skiing near Innsbruck. It's clearly utilizing a good percentage of Münchner malt as it's bready and grainy. There's a touch of juicy apple to it, followed by grassy and very lightly herbal hop flavors. Its light sweetness is balanced by a moderate bitterness and although it's sweetish it still somehow manages to finish mostly dry. In the mouth it's light-medium in body with a delicate caress from its moderate, seemingly natural (but most likely not) fine-bubbled carbonation. Quite pleasant all around, and remarkably well-balanced and drinkable.

Poured a pale golden colour, small, thin fast fading head, clear. Aroma was strong Hallertau hop, not too much else but very pleasant. Tasted Munich malt and apple. Had a nice balanced sweetness, finish was slightly grainy. Very crisp mouthfull, smooth with decent carbonation. Overall a very drinkable, refreshing alpine lager, more of an Export than a Helles.

Bought on a short trip to Germany.
It seems this beer (or at least it's name) was adopted from another brewery.

0.5 l bottle.

Look clear golden, with a huge white head, good carbonation too.

Smell and taste are light, malty, grassy hops. Slight sweetness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is easy smooth, light and crisp due to the carbonation.

Good lager from Germany. Very enjoyable indeed.
