Beer review — Zierholz

Zierholz pale-coloured beers $5 a pint
German Ale is a very zesty, refreshingly bitter, mid-strength Cologne style made for quaffing. Hopmeister is a little stronger and a little darker with bracing, lingering hops bitterness. The German Pils starts with sweet malt and finishes dry and hoppy. And Weizen is extraordinarily all banana, cloves and crisp acidity.

Zierholz dark-coloured beers $5 a pint
Amber Ale is an ‘alt’ or aged beer with idiosyncratic nutty, sweet and sour flavour – one  to enjoy with robust pork dishes. Brown Ale offers rich, exotic caramel and chocolate flavours and a strikingly zesty freshness. And the lovely,  dark, strong Porter is creamy and opulent with assertive roasted and bitter chocolate flavours.
