BBD - Schonramer - Schonram Hell - Bavarian Beer - 500ml Bottle - Passed Best Before Date

Size Guide

£1.75 £3.50

This beer has unfortunately passed its Best Before Date.  It doesn't mean that it's undrinkable!  It just means that it may not quite taste as the brewer intended it to.

Once beer has been made, it starts to "condition".  Now this is welcomed in traditional ales as it allows some of the bitterness created by the hops to mellow. 

In craft brewing, hops are generally used to give floral, fruity aromas instead of bitters.  When craft beers age, the floral notes tend to soften over time and so this style of beer is ideally drank fresh.

We have tested a beer from this batch and it is good, but as it has passed its Best Before Date, we are offering it to you at a massively reduced discount.  Just 1/2 its normal price.  When they are gone they are gone, so if you want to grab a great beer at a great price, this is it!


Schönramer Hell is their main type and one of the most popular beers in the southeastern foothills of the Alps. This tasty, full-bodied beer is of the type Münchner Hell, but a stronger and more hoppy variant typical for the region.

This gold and bronze medalist (European Beer Star 2011, 2017 & 2019) is also known in some circles as “Schoaramer”, “s'Greane” or “1780er”.

Due to the use of a special type of barley, its brilliant straw yellow color is very light compared to many beers of its kind. Very soft and seductive to the touch with a slight acacia note, it turns into a full, balanced dual sound of hops and malt. The finish is very clean and dry and leaves a fine, delicate hop bitterness on the tongue. Schönramer Hell simply encourages you to keep drinking! Yay!

Schönramer Hell goes particularly well with Bavarian home cooking, but also with cold platters and cheese platters.

Special features of the production: intensive mashing-in process, cold fermentation in open vats, long and cold secondary fermentation of 5-6 weeks with frizzs for natural carbonation of the beer. No pasteurization.

Malt: 100% Pilsner malt from the Marthe barley variety (barley from Old Bavaria, malted in Bavaria)
Hops: Tradition, Select, Hersbrucker and Hallertauer medium early from the Hallertau and Spalt
