I have never had a Fischer, so I can't compare them!
This beer is light, dry, and balanced. The hop bitterness is ~18-20 IBU but has a good hop taste and aroma from late & dry hopping. For bitterness its neutral. Its very easy drinking but not void of character. All of which is from the hops. There is corn in this recipe but the taste of corn is none existent due to AE drying out the beer. Its very clean and crisp.
I have made this with just the German noble hops, all Cascade, all Soriachi Ace and a combo of Ace & Cascade. The latter is what I have on tap now. 1st two additions were Ace, the dry hopping with cascade.
I really like the Ace hop since it has a lemony taste which makes it a great summer beer. When made with the German hops think of a light beer with the full hop profile of older American beers of the 70s. That said, the freshness is what makes it so much better. Being light and low ABV you will drink it quick which is good since the dry hopping flavor will dissipate over the long term.
Come fall I will be making this beer with All Saaz. I believe Android used this in his beer.
My homebrew buddies told me this is a good home brewing gateway beer for the BMC crowd. Light enough and low in bitterness for those types but with hop character that home brewers would still appreciate.
Its very good session beer!
