Kräusen ist eine untergärige helle Bierspezialität mit einer Stamwürze von 12,8% und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,2%. Der Begriff Kräusen stammt aus der Fachsprache der Brauer und hat dort gleich drei Bedeutungen. entweder die Schaumdecke die sich während der Gärung auf dem Bier bildet und sich "kräuselt". oder ein Bier das mitten in der Gärung steht und eben gerade jene Schaumdecke hat. oder ein fertig gelagertes, unfiltriertes Bier in dem noch viel Hefe vorhanden ist. Unser Kräusen ist ein naturtrübes (unfiltriert), spritzig-freches und sehr mildes Bier. Es ist von all unseren Bieren dem Pils am ähnlichsten. Mit ca. 60% der Produktion zählt es zu unserem Bestseller.

JulienHuxley (5525) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2016
Couple pints on tap at the brewpub. Frothy white head in a stone mug. Aroma is actually very hoppy, very leafy, citrusy, spicy woody hops, light munich malt aroma, nice and bready. Taste is quite bitter, almost IPA like, very hoppy. Palate is light bodied with smooth carbonation. Tasty.

Draught at the Kulturbrauerei, Heidelberg, Germany. Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Earth, dry malt, flour and even a hint of hops in the aroma. The flavor is dry hops, dry malt, flour and mild bitterness. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aurops (1) - SPAIN - APR 3, 2015 does not count
Aroma a maltas, en boca muy cremosa con entrada ligera dulce con paso al amargor del lúpulo muy herbáceo, floral y persistente. Muy bien equilibrada y fácil de beber. Muy rica

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
Draught@source, HD. Greenish hay blond, vivid carbonation, not all that cloudy really for a Kräusen/Keller. Fresh herbal nose with more cereal graininess than any prominent yeast character. The same strong herbal, grassy hops take the lead in taste, leading to a pronounced hop bitterness, stopping short of green and metallic. Hints of citrus, nettle. Gets more rounded and pleasant as the vividly sparkling body subsides. Best local pils substitute to be found on tap in da Burg.

rozsoma (775) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2014
Monoton, aber ok. Hozzá a tipikus bajor helles hozzáállást. Dicséretes. Hasonlít a Vetter Helles-éhez.
