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.

jaghana (5524) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle 75cl at Galeries Gourmandes Strasbourg. A clear yellow beer with very nice head and good lacing, carbonation is high. Smell is very hopy even dry hoping. Aroma is quite sweet, very malty and quite bitter, nice hops bouquet there is definitely dry hoping on this beer. Very difficult to detect that it was done with a lower yeast, finish is a bit abrupt with a spicy hops bitterness. Good beer, good body, pleasant but high in alcohol.
