Clausthaler is made by a patented process that ensures that little fermentable maltose is produced. Clausthaler Premium is then bottom-fermented with especially cultured, but otherwise normal beer yeast. Because there is little maltose available in the wort the yeast can only produce a tiny amount of alcohol. This process not only brews a tasty non-alcoholic beer but also conforms to the German Purity Law of 1516.
*Note: Clausthaler is 0.45% alc./vol. so not completely alcohol-free. In the UK, the terms ‘alcohol-free’, ‘non-alcoholic’, ‘dealcoholized’, or ‘alcohol-removed’ may be used for products with not more than 0.05% alc./vol..
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 06/12/2010
Dry and refreshing with floral and metallic notes.
In the inimitable words of our resident expert, Barry Lager, “It does taste of beer and I never thought I’d say that about a non-alcoholic lager. Considering its non-alcoholic beer it’s fantastic.”
