Red Rhino’s Exclusive Beer Line-up
The Kölsch at Red Rhino, Bangalore has always been a thirst quencher. It is very pleasant with a subtle fruity aroma derived from fermentation. A clean, crisp and delicately balanced beer with a very soft hop character. It’s subdued maltiness with moderately-high carbonation leads into a refreshing finish.
ABV: 4.2% | IBU: 15
Oktoberfest Exclusive Beer – Märzen
The classic lagers of Southern Germany are only sold by four breweries within Munich. The rest of Germany and the rest of the world create Oktoberfest lagers each year to celebrate all things, beer, autumn, and good times.
“Red Rhino’s Oktoberfest lager is a special brew that we designed to compliment our great selection of year round ales and lagers. Making something unique and different is really what craft beer and brewing is all about. Germany inspires beer all over the world. In fact, 95% of all beer consumed everywhere is a German style lager. We used traditional German Munich malts and Hallertauer hops with a traditional German lager yeast.” – Dan Satterthwaite, Master Brewer, Red Rhino Brewing Co.
Märzen is Red Rhino’s take on traditional Oktoberfest German Lager, uniquely crafted in Bangalore for their Oktoberfest event every year. It is brewed with an abundance of imported Munich malt which is known for its bready, light caramel/candy-like inviting aromas. Red Rhino’s Märzen has a beautiful radiant glow of copper like colour with a collar of pillowy white foam.
A whiff of it will uncover the spicy and herbal aromas of a European Saazer hop along with a rich bready and caramel-like notes. Order them in Red Rhino’s gigantic 1 Liter steins to kickstart your fest in majestic style!
