Gose Original Leipziger Bier

Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof

Germany

You can tell that this is brewed in the former East Germany, because their beer labels tend to be very plain, and not at all eye-catching. This one features an unpleasant-looking man wiping beer foam off of his mustache. Yuck. Also, the health warning is right there on the front, instead of hidden around back where pregnant (or soon to be pregnant) American teens rarely look. According to the label this is 4.6% ABV (so it's not rocket fuel) and is brewed with coriander and salt, of which I could taste neither, and it is bottle-conditioned, which I could tell a little. Overall, not bad, but a better summer beer. Very light flavored, easy to drink.
