Ur Krostitzer, Feinherbes Pilsner, gives a light, sweet, bready aroma with a herbal hop note. Likewise, on first taste, it provides a pleasantly sweet malts, a slightly pithy bitterness down the middle and a bitter, herbal finish with suggestions of wood. The mouthfeel is soft, and really quite dry.
At the time of making these notes I was having this at a BBQ, and it did a great job with greasy pork steaks and bratwurst. I remember being quite surprised, as I generally have a low opinion of the pils coming out of the former Eastern states. Just goes to show that you should leave your preconceptions at the door.
Not to be confused with Köstritzer (as if you would!), although the breweries are only about 65km apart, as the crow flies.
