The month of May, 1928 will for ever remain a landmark in Belgium's beer history. It was then that the Limburg brewery of Alken launched its Cristal lager. At the time many Belgian breweries were not yet able to produce low-fermentation beers and Cristal lager was hailed as a revolutionary new development. Consumers immediately took to Cristal. Its secret? A perfect combination of very soft spring water and carefully selected raw materials. The Alken brewery strongly promoted pure lager and in this way helped to develop the production of Belgian lager beers. The brand became Limburg’s major lager, but it is also much appreciated far beyond the Limburg borders. In 1989 the beer was awarded the Gold Medal (Monde Sélection) for quality in London. In 2003 Cristal will celebrate its 75th anniversary. Product specifications: A contemporary lager, but still brewed according to the original recipe. Alc. 4.8 % vol. Flavour: A clear blonde lager with a characteristic flavour and a refreshingly bitter aftertaste. Serving hints: Store the bottle in a cool place (2 to 4°C). Empty the full contents of the bottle into a degreased, rinsed and wet glass, making sure the bottle does not touch the foam. Allow to overflow a little and remove excess foam. Rinse the bottom of the glass, dip dry and serve on an appropriate coaster accompanied by the bottle. Cristal creates a liberating, stimulating feeling and helps you see everyday life from a carefree perspective. It urges you to be yourself and not to worry.

Coloração dourada, com creme branco fraco. Lager "normal", sem gosto e sem graça. Apenas refrescante. Tente outra.
