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 Kttbusser was outlawed because it contained oats, honey, and molasses. Over the centuries since its prohibition, Kttbusser became a lost brewing style. At Grimm Brothers, weve resurrected this refreshing ale with a kiss of hops. You dont need a magic mirror to know that Snowdrop is the fairest in the land. Recommended by dwarves everywhere!

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted oats, biscuit, herbal, floral, pepper, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity yeast, pale malt, honey, molasses, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted oats, biscuit, herbal, floral, pepper, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted oats, biscuit, herbal, floral, pepper, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity yeast, pale malt, honey, molasses, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and creamy/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 7.1%. Overall this is a very nice blonde ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity yeast, pale malt, honey, molasses, and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very unique beer; tastes like a cross between Kolsch, Wheat, and Blonde ale styles. A very enjoyable offering.

Aroma??? Almost none. Appearance is a pale yellow with no head. Taste is close to a macro brew. Super easy to drink, but a big disappointment overall.

One of the lighter looking beers that ever stood in front of me. Feint crystal blonde-ginger all appearance with a crisp thin cream layer on top. Flowery hops drift off the glass, and after aeration, are joined by some sourdough and ethyl notes. Watery body with an easy cereal grain and sourdough grain at the core. Some tartness throughout. Flowery alcohol notes. This, sweet, grainy finish. Stylistically, this is definitely something a bit different.

Can. Honey aroma with notes of molasses and grassy hops. Pours hazy straw colored with a minimal white head that has essentially no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet honey flavor with some molasses as well as some oat character. Finishes dry and quite smooth with the honey and molasses continuing with a touch of grassy hops at the end for balance. Interesting and very tasty!

From a can. Pours almost clear dark gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky malt, stale corn, bread, and straw. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, sweet fruit, musky malt, and bread.

Bill Becker (927) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 26, 2015
12 ounce can. It pours a hazy straw gold...looks like a Wit or a Hefe. Small head of foam subsides quickly leaving a ring around the glass. Minimal lacing. The smell is interesting. I get some sweet notes from the molasses and honey but I also get some smoke and a bit of lemon zest type of hoppiness. Man is this tasty. Theres an earthy quality that dominates. Yeah, theres some sweet to it with the honey, a bit of sweet and bitter with the molasses, then theres the smoke. Adds a nice dimension here but is far from being over done. Everything seems so in balance and that makes for a smooth drinker. Oh and I do get a hint or 2 of lemon zest in the finish. Deeper into the session and there is a definite nutty flavour going on. Fairly light with the body and carbonation. Smoooooth. This is really impressive. Kottbusser, eh? Welcome back!!

August 20th, 2013 - I enjoyed the Grimm Brothers Snow Drop out of a plastic Coors Light cup, decorated with the Denver Broncos Logo, but not with the structure and shape that a good beer tasting and reviewing deserve. With that caveat included, this is a light yellow beer, faintly hazy, with a wall of bubbles slowly clambering up the inside of the glass like Wildlings scaling "The Wall." From the nose I get a touch of lemon sweetness, like a lemon drop, but not much else. I blame this on the vessel. Light and effervescent, the Snow Drop glides effortlessly across the tongue until the mid-taste where it flexes its flavor more powerfully, showing off wheat and a dry lemon, almost like a Meyer lemon, with a hoppy after taste and finish. Dry, crisp, and a little citrus - the Earl Grey of beers.
