Much more you can do with Mahou Maestra Wheat Beer!

May 27, 2019
Mahou Maestra Wheat is the first Spanish wheat beer to be ‘Made in India’. A Belgian style (Witbier) beer, it comes with a golden color and a thick creamy foam. Its principal character is a fruity aroma with a slight hint of hops and a touch of sweetness that creates a well-balanced sensation in the palate. 

It is a fusion of Spain and India Ethos because of the mixture of its tangy hints of Sevillian (Spanish) orange peel and the herbal spicy notes of Himalayan organic coriander makes it refreshing, delectable and easy to drink. 

The secret ingredient of the beer and the signature recipe of Mahou is the yeast, which imparts a characteristic taste that makes it stand apart from other regular beers. Mahou Maestra Wheat is for these evolved consumers of today who are a master (maestra) in their lifestyle choices and are willing to embrace high-quality experiences.

Mahou Maestra Wheat holds the distinction of being the first ‘Made-in-India’ Spanish wheat beer as well as being the first wheat beer in India to come with a pull-off cap on the bottle, as part of 
its premium packaging.

Available in Bangalore in 330ml bottles (pints) as well as in 500ml (cans),  priced at INR 110/- and INR 150/- respectively.
