Naturally cloudy Grevensteiner Original is a light country beer brewed with soft spring water and freshly harvested hops. Tried-and-tested malt gives the beer its amber shine and full-bodied taste. Brewed in line with the German Purity Law.

In the nineteenth century, brothers Carl and Anton Veltins brewed an exquisite beer in the Grevensteiner Brewery that achieved much more than popularity. With Grevensteiner beer, Brauerei C. & A. Veltins has brought this story back to life because brewing tradition and speciality beers are experiencing a revival in Germany. More and more consumers are discovering the diversity of the world of beer and are developing a passion for beer culture.

The beer exhibits a silky soft amber colour with orange hues and has a smooth, velvety head. The complex taste is initially dominated by caramel with a light undertone of honey and roasted almonds and fresh, fruity notes closely resembling green apples. Despite its intense and slightly malty, sweet taste, Grevensteiner is still noticeably tangy and elegant. A roasted bitter note coupled with a nutty flavour tops off this sensory experience by allowing a creamy caramel taste to unfold.
