Review of Mahr’s Brau Weisse

16 Apr
Well, it’s time for another craft beer review guys.  For today’s tasting I’m going to be trying the Mahr’s Weisse produced by Mahr’s Brau located in Bamberg, Germany.

This is another brewery that I have just recently started to get in my area, so I haven’t really made up my mind on what I think of the brewery as a whole.  Only one way to find out I guess.

The website, mahrs-braeu.de, is currently under construction, so let’s just try the beer and see for ourselves what it’s like.

Let’s drink.

This beer comes in a 16.9 oz. bottle with a 4.9% ABV.

It poured a very cloudy orange to yellow color.  A very white head was produced from a medium aggressive pour.  It was adequately sized, frothy, creamy and soft.  The retention time was only average and the lacing was somewhat substandard also.

The nose gave a big shot of banana along with a sturdy hints of wheat and grain.  I found spices of coriander and light notes of pepper and cloves.  Touches of orange zest hid underneath along with a bit of bubblegum.  It was quite fresh and fitting for the style.

The banana was a little more relaxed in the taste.  It seemed to have stronger aspects of wheat and fresh grain though.  The coriander was harmonized very well and again, just a slight smattering of pepper and cloves.  Little to no bitterness was found and the orange savors were quite meek.

The mouthfeel was medium/thin.  It was crisp, snappy, smooth and a touch watery.  It was very thirst quenching and refreshing, but the flavor vanished rather quickly after the swallow.

Overall, this was a decent beer I thought.  It definitely falls in line with the Weisse style.  It’s predominately proper and enjoyable.  It’s super easy to drink and exemplifies a perfect Summer quaffer.  I would recommend giving it a try if you are making your rounds through Hefeweisse territory, however, in my opinion, it’s not quite as good as some of the others out there.  It still has enough character and personality to keep a drinker interested throughout however.  So, the next time you see the Mahr’s Weisse, pick up a bottle and give it a try and let me know what your thoughts of it are.

Thanks for reading and commenting everyone.  I really appreciate it.

Until next time.  Cheers.

Score:  3.6 out of 5
Grade:  B

    Sud,

    Yeah, the color was very nice, but I was expecting a huge, billowy head that we normally get from Hefewiezens. That was the only real dissapointing factor in the appearance in my opinion.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Cheers,
    Scott
