Maltesse est la toute nouvelle bière de la Brasserie Castelain. Déjà récompensée d’une Médaille d’Argent au Concours Général Agricole 2007, Maltesse sera commercialisée à partir du 30 mai dans le réseau Grandes et Moyennes Surfaces. Maltesse est une bière blonde aux reflets dorés. Sa mousse est particulièrement dense et onctueuse. Bière finement pétillante et rafraîchissante, Maltesse, la reine des bières, allie des parfums riches et puissants qui laissent en bouche un goût fruité d’un grand raffinement. Maltesse est une bière de fermentation basse. Son degré d’alcool (7.7% Alc. Vol.) et sa garde longue, en font un produit riche et puissant dont la recette semble avoir traversé les âges. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, il est conseillé de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 6°C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé. Maltesse est proposée sous deux formats : en bouteille 75 cl (sortie fin mai) et en boîte 50 cl (sortie mi-juin).

Replaced by Maltesse Triple, brewed with a different yeast and hop variety.

Brandman (2144) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Clear redish coppery body, white head. Aroma is caramelly malty with some medicinal and fruity hops. Flavour is strong malt, alcohol, berries and some yeast when warms up. Much alcohol.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUL 11, 2009
Comprata in lattina da 50cl ad un supermercato (DiPerDi?) in via San Luca, quello con la focacceria sopra; l’ho presa perché ho letto Castelain, e ricordavo che la Ch’Ti di Natale non mi era dispiaciuta. Ma questo è un prodotto di altro rango, una birra con meno pretese e qualche grado alcolico di troppo; non saprei dire se è davvero una strong lager o una bière de garde. Tutto sommato non saprei bocciarla completamente, ha un qualcosa che ti fa pensare che tutto sommato si può anche lasciarla quietare

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
750ml bottle found at Auchan in La Defense. Pours yellow-gold with soapy head, aroma of syrup and malts. Taste is a still-too-sweet mix of malt and caramel, slight leather notes as well. A little on the undeveloped side.

Wolfbass (937) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 20, 2011
Trovata una sera in lattina in un supermercato, pensavo seriamente ad un disastro. Invece si lascia bere ed ha anche un suo carattere...Buon corpo e maltosa.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - NOV 4, 2009
Creamy white full lasting head. Amber-golden colour. Aroma is malty with light honey, floral and spicy notes. Flavor is moderately malty with hoppy, herbal and bready tones, ending in a moderately hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

sinte (362) - Udine, ITALY - APR 27, 2011
Bottle 0.75 L. Dark golden body, with a small, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing; low density of medium-sized bubbles. Light malty and hoppy aroma with spicy notes related to alcohol; maybe some hints of honey. Sweet flavour with some bitter notes. Light-to-medium body with a watery texture; flat carbonation; evident alcoholic warming in the finish.

Keeper (252) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 23, 2009
cloudy orange colour with a persistent white foam. laroma of honey and dust with notes of green apples in the background, long malty and honeyish finish...so much alcol...

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2008
Medium carbonation, golden colour, nice head. Rich taste, sugar, honey, bitterness on finish. Quite strong. The kind of beer i like.

hiomo (74) - Castellalto, ITALY - SEP 5, 2010
Birra dal colore ambra – oro con schiuma fine e di colore bianco. Aroma di malto miele,caramello e note floreali e speziate . Ne consegue un’ aroma dolce che termina con una sottile amarezza. Nel finale rimane abbastanza in risalto soprattutto la dolcezza del malto con sottili toni di erbe e luppolo.
