Brewed by Fürstlich Fürstenbergische Brauerei
The Meyer & Söhne (Meyer & Sons) AG brewery, established in 1834, evolved over time to be the second biggest brewery in Baden-Württemberg by 2003. Today the brewery company Meyer & Sons is part of the Fürstenberg brewery. The popular brand “Riegeler Bier” was preserved, and the beer is now brewed and bottled by the Fürstenberg brewery on site in Donaueschingen.
Review: Bottle of Riegeler Landbier: ABV: 5.4%
Brewed according to the Riegeler original recipe since 1834, the beer is still growing strong in Germany today.
On pour there is a clear golden colour with a small sized head which looks good, but dies eventually. Small bit of carbonation. Looks ok
It has a nice smell, a bit beery and piercing on the nose, but nice all the same. Sweet malts
Taste was a bit flat, found no real initial taste.
There was an aftertaste alright, very hoppy, bit heavy in the back end
Strong enough though, can feel the alcohol
Not great to drink, got a chemical taste, bit of lemon, a bit sour. Not one I will be returning to.
