COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein Bier aus Tradition
Zurück zu den Wurzeln: Mit Grevensteiner lässt die Brauerei C. & A. Veltins altehrwürdiges Brauhandwerk wieder lebendig werden – ganz in der Tradition der Zwillingsbrüder Carl und Anton Veltins zu Beginn des letzten Jahrhunderts! Bernsteinfarben schimmert es aus dem Seidel – an ihm prangt der über 100 Jahre alte Schriftzug der Familienbrauerei. Die bauchige Steinieflasche signalisiert, dass hier solide Brautradition lebendig wird. Die historische Steinieflasche ist das Gebinde, mit dem sich die Brauerei C. & A. Veltins über Jahrzehnte identifiziert hat. Mit historisch anmutendem Etikett und sympathischer Versiegelung über dem Kronkorken lebt die Historie in einem aktuellen Produkt wieder auf.
Das Bier präsentiert sich mit seiner seidig matten Bernsteinfarbe mit orangefarbenen Reflexen und einer samtig weichen Schaumkrone. Das komplexe Aroma wird zunächst dominiert von Karamell- aromen mit einem leichten Unterton nach Honig, gebrannten Mandeln und frisch-fruchtigen Noten, die vor allem an grünen Apfel erinnern. Das Grevensteiner wirkt trotz seines runden und leicht malzig-süßem Körpers sehr spritzig und elegant. Eine leichte Röstbitternote, gepaart mit nussigen Geschmackseindrücken eröffnet ein ausgeprägtes Finale, in dem sich ein Aromaeindruck von Sahnekaramellen entfaltet.

Hazy amber with a lasting white head.The aroma has some toasted and caramel malts to it, a unique yeast character and some faint hops. It reminds me of a steam beer. The flavor is along the same lines, with low bitterness and a clean finish. Not bad.

(500 ml bottle) Pours a hazy amber-red beer, with fine carbonation, and a rocky white head. The aroma is remarkably reminiscent of a traditional English bitter! And as German lager goes, we’re off to bloody good start! The amber malt really comes through, with hints of cereal, biscuit, and caramel. This gives way to pleasant hop aromas: earth, pine resin, forest fruits, fresh straw, floral notes, and spiced sultanas. There’s a slight oak woodiness on the finish, and a distinct presence of mineral water. The slight hint of rice is unfortunate, but the aroma still holds its integrity. At first, I thought this beer could do with a stronger aroma, and a fuller taste. But as the temperature rises, the aromas intensify. This style therefore seems best served at cellar temperature. Its medium mouthfeel, smooth body, and gentle carbonation complement the subtleties of the beer. Overall, I’m impressed. I’m glad to have reviewed such a pleasant lager.

Persistent white foam and a fine aroma of light breads, hay and spices. Unfortunately, it has a indescribable synthetic aromas that remind me of soapy water. What exactly it is, I do not know, but I have previously experienced it in industrial beer, so it’s probably something with malt extract. Fortunately, the taste is good and has a good caramel malt taste with a little taste of toasted light bread and a very little touch of hazelnut. The total malt character is fine and is rich and is almost getting too heavy and malty, as a slight sweetness of honey carries it into a freaky bitterness that puts a fine edge on the malt. Whether it’s Tettnanger hops famous taste of spices that also characterizes the aroma, I do not quite know, but it may well be the case. Tastefully, it is all right, but in comparison to many other German lagers it is under the middle. Compared to Danish lagers it is far above average.
