Steam Lager.
An unfiltered, unpasteurised lager with a difference. We use San Francisco Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures to release delicate fruity esters, whilst Vienna malt is used to give the beer a hint of sweetness.

pivnizub (9005) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
Tap(@Brewery Tap):Golden, a bit unclear, firm and lacy white head; mild herbal-hoppy nose with a certain fruitiness and a bready touvh; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively light bodied; lingering sweet-bitter - and a bit worty - finish, followed by hoppy traces in the very end. Well crafted, but not too exciting…
