Roggenbier (German Rye Beer)
About Roggenbier (German Rye Beer)
Roggenbiers range from light copper to dark reddish-brown in color. As a beer made from Rye, a Roggenbier will have a zesty aroma of rye, often with a touch of fruitiness of banana and clove. These beers will be spicy and hearty in flavor, and will be more grainy than other German wheat beers. Ales of this kind are highly carbonated, medium in body, and dry and bitter in finish.
