A smooth flavour, with hints of liquorice, nuts and coffee. A full-bodied ale with a deep amber colour
Its name is “Strong”, like its character. Its personality is regal, like the historical variety from which it descends and to which it belongs. A beer made with only the finest quality select malts, it harmoniously blends notes of liquorice and nuts with hints of roasted coffee. Before leaving the palate, it offers a pleasing aftertaste of hops that makes it unforgettable. After admiring the deep amber red colour, discover its sweetness – it will astound your senses once again.

Ingredients (serves 6/8 people):
125g of flour, 3 eggs, 1 pinch of salt, 2 tbsp of Theresianer Strong Ale, 2 tbsp of milk, 6 medium-large apples (not too sweet), butter for frying, cinnamon and confectioners’ sugar to taste.
Prepare a batter with the flour, beer, milk, salt and eggs. Peel and core the apples, then cut into rings about 1 cm thick.
Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan and, once hot, fry the slices of apples that have been dipped in the batter. When the slice is golden brown on both sides, remove from the pan and place on a sheet of absorbent paper (it does not matter if the apple is not completely cooked). Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon. While they are still hot (they can be reheated in a
microwave if necessary), serve the fried apples with Theresianer Strong Ale (or Vienna).
