Grevensteiner Original has a very thick, frothy, puffy, off-white head, an opaque, orange-amber appearance, with tight and fierce little bubble streams, lots of sediment throughout, and a lace curtain left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, and the flavor is the same, with subdued bitterness, bread crust, and a bit of syrup. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Grevensteiner Original finishes easy drinking and highly refreshing.

A nod to the German purity law. Comes in a lovely 0,30 cl Steinie bottle with a label that shows the history and tradition of the brewery.

A very good looking beer. On pour a nice creamy head formed, very frothy, that stuck around. The colour of the beer was a dark cloudy amber colour. Some good lacing.

The aroma was very, very sweet, a quite piercing smell on the nose. A sweet smell, of bread crust, malts and some fruit, I liked it

A very smooth beer, easy to drink, soft on the tongue and lovely to taste. I liked it, for me it was like having a nice cup of tea (I am not a coffee drinker!), the creamy caramel kicking in and some biscuit flavours, so relaxing and refreshing!

Malts and caramel taste, and balanced overall.

No aftertaste, not very hoppy at all, pleasant finish.

Recommended and will be on the look out for these again in the near future.

A just OK Kellerbier that did not look to inviting but smelled and tasted OK. This is a drinker to quench your thirst while doing other stuff. Goes well with a sime dish as well. Will not seek it out again.

0.5 litre 'stubbi' bottle (never seen one that size before -- .33l is the normal stubbi bottle size).
Very drinkable, but lacking in character imo. Will try again, and attempt a better review...
