In addition to gentle classics such as Pils and Hellem, Schierlinger rye is the strongest specialty in the range of the Schierling special brewery. The chestnut red beauty is brewed with roasted rye malt and presents a beautiful palette of dark malt notes.
In the past, rye beer was much more popular than it is today. Rye was a grain that grew well in German soil and could therefore be processed into beer in large quantities. As the population grew, so did the demand for bread and the priority shifted from liquid to solid food. The brewing of rye beer was even banned from time to time in order to strive for a nationwide supply of bread. Fortunately, grain is no longer scarce in Germany today and the production of bread and beer is not mutually exclusive. Fortunately, because the dark rye beer tastes great with hearty bread from the stone oven with fresh butter and a hint of chives.
The Schierlinger rye flows into the glass in a wonderful copper-red color and is adorned with a stately crown of white, firm foam. A strong, malty scent rises into the nose and leaves notes of freshly baked bread, dark fruits and delicate caramel. The initial taste follows the olfactory first impression and reveals a medium-weight body with surprisingly strong carbonic acid. Aromas of bread dough, roasted grain and creamy caramel dance on the tongue before the beer enjoyment ends with a crisp finish of malty splendor.
