COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time German beer was only deemed pure if it contained the four orthodox ingredients of brewing: water, barley, hops, and yeast. During this time, an ale known as Köttbusser was outlawed because it contained oats, honey, and molasses. Over the centuries since its prohibition, Köttbusser became a lost brewing style. At Grimm Brothers, we’ve resurrected this refreshing ale with a kiss of hops. You don’t need a magic mirror to know that Snowdrop is the fairest in the land. Recommended by dwarves everywhere!

Nitro version of snow drop is smoother and creamer than co2 version. A must try if available.

Comes across more Belgian than German. Maybe true to a kottbusser style but I’m not sure. Good after a hot day of yard work.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grass, and citrus. Taste is malt, grass, lemon, and wheat. Pretty good.

24 jan 2014, bottle. Light yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is straw malt. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Straw lager and faintly sweet. Honestly I'm bit finding any molasses or honey. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another drinkable Grimm Bros. ale. Light and refreshing with a decent bitter finish. I’m a bit confused over "wheat beer" as the style, when, according to the description, there is no wheat in it.

Pint of bottle in Denver 2012. Hazy dark amber. Light head leaves a bit of lace. Good body. Light dust, banana and lemon.

Grimm Brothers' Snow Drop has a pleasant amber appearance and a dry finish. ---Cheers until next time! DMSR

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, over a hazy, with occasional particles, light gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is citrus, light honey, light hop spice.....taste is wheat cereal, slight honey, hints of citrus, light finishing hop.....mouth feel light of medium, minimally astringent, carbonation gives a slight acid bite. This is a somewhat muddled beer. There are hints of this, dabs of that, but it does not really come together in a co-originated crisp way. It is the ingredients, not the quality of brewing that makes it so. This is one of those recipes where I would like to eliminate ingredients one at a time to see the influence of each on the overall product. BJCP 6/3/12/4/7
