This is my personal favorite when it comes to German lager strains. It could be my family association with Bamburg and the excellent rauchbier that this creates, or it could be the rich malt complexity that this strain delivers. Excellent for both helles lagers and more rich and malty lagers, such as maibocks, marzens, vienna lagers and doppelbocks. As a beer geek, I swear that you will love this strain if you enjoy a good German lager!
This is a unique strain, capable of producing fine lagers. It is very smooth, well-rounded and full-bodied. A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete.
