Oettinger Winterbier

The Oettinger Winterbier is a Christmas/Winter Beer that is a break from the Winter Wheats that I've reviewed the last couple of posts and it's back to more normal beers.  It's from the Oettinger Group and is called Winterbier.

It pours a reddish amber with a caramelly colored head.  The aroma is more malt than hops and the taste is smoky malt with a hoppy dry finish. 

I haven't had any of Oettinger's beers before so this was an interesting introduction.  I'll try some more of them when I get back from Afghanistan.

I have been reading several of your German winter bier reviews and am quite impressed so far. Keep up the good work!
