About The Beer
The Tasting Kit features one each of Spiegelau's four BEER CLASSICS shapes: Stemmed Pilsner, Lager, IPA and Wheat Beer.
Spiegelau has discovered that every style of beer has its own balance of characteristics. Unless the shape of the glass is matched to the style, the flavours and aromas will be lost instantly. The BEER CLASSICS consists of four specialised products to suit different styles of beer. Glasses with the appropriate shape, a thin wall and rim, helps to highlight the characteristics of a given style and offers an optimised tasting experience.
STEMMED PILSNER: The open mouth of the tulip-shaped Stemmed Pilsner allows for an intense release of flavours. Ideal for Belgian style Ales, Pilsner, powerful Stouts.
LAGER: Being slightly wider at the mouth than at the foot, the Lager glass properly presents the typical flavours and aroma-tics of Pale Lagers, Ales, German 'Helles'.
IPA: Designed to showcase varying aromatic profiles for the American 'hop forward' IPA beer, this glass preserves a frothy head and maintains a comfortably wide opening for the drinker to "nose" the beer.
WHEAT BEER: The tall Wheat Beer glass accentuates the aromas and flavours naturally found in wheat beers. The wide opening at the top enhances the aromas found in spiced beers and fruit flavoured Lambics.
All Spiegelau glasses are dishwasher safe.
