Steinlager® is a lager with a distinctive grassy note and clean crisp bitterness of green bullet hops. It is balanced with a dry, astringent finish.

Light retention with minimal lacing. Smells of biscuit and grass. Slight skunk odor. Tastes like grass and has a left skunk note on my tongue. Very crisp and easy to drink though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (3423) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.8%. New country tick. Golden yellow colour on the body with one finger of white, froathy head. Average retention, leaves a messy medium thick lacing clinged on the glass’s walls. Low activity in it. Aroma of grass, a bit of apple juice, sweet malts. Taste is very sweet and malty, with grass notes. On the aftertaste maltose and hay. Not very good. Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels. Quite dry on the palate. Overall not one I would seek out but if it was the only available option, it would do, provided it would be ice cold.

steinlager look alright when in the glass but its taste doesn’t match the appearance and sadly i’d prefer double brown....

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber, slight haze, some head. Nose - green beans and pale malt (cornflakes) Taste - more of the green vegetables, more of the breakfast cereal. Palate - light body but decent balance, perhaps almost as clean as the ’Pure’. Overall - it’s another good lager. I like it.

33 cl bottle from a friend. Pours yellow with a white head. Grainy taste and aroma. I enjoyed this one with some crisps and it worked well.

Excellent aroma, and modestly drinkable. My first beer from New Zealand (most likely).
