Stiegl Craft Beer CHRISTKINDL
The production of honey beers has a long tradition: Refining beer with honey dates as far back as to the time of the ancient Germanic peoples. They were inspired by the honey wine "Met", which has been enjoyed by the gods of Nordic mythology. Also the Vikings are known to have brewed a special beer to celebrate winter solstice at the end of December.
Whether their Christmas season turned out to be as peaceful and reflective as ours? After a few swallows of this festive Stiegl Christmas beer, this question can quickly be answered with a "no".
The creative head brewer from Steigl describes the Stiegl Craft Beer Christkindl as follows:
„Dressed in a deep copper with red highlights and a snow-white foam crown, 'Christkindl' promises festive pleasure. The variety of aromas on the nose range from caramel to delicate biscuit, blending together with compelling hints of honey. The mild taste of organic honey sets the tone well into the finish, while an astoundingly harmonious composition of delicate hoppy notes and a fine effervescence please the palate with a touch of Christmas.“
