This snuff went rapidly from "meh" to "Mmmmm" to "Must have" for me. My first instinct was that it was a too-dry and over-dusty version of McChrystal's SP, but as I accustomed myself to the grind, I began to appreciate the subtlety of the blend. Stammheimer is effectively an SP, with a citrus freshness which underpins the blend and holds the other flavors together. The hops are not overpowering, but they bring a definite hint of beer to the mixture, even (and this may sound odd) the delicious refreshing fizz of a cold lager.

The beer in question would be something like a Hoegaarden, or other white beer, with a couple of slices of lemon. Someone else mentioned a skunky aroma - I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing, but there's a definite touch of the 'special' scent of Amsterdam in there as well.

I believe that hops may be the reason. This stuff may have a German label, but it's so Dutch, they should call it Cees. It's replaced all the other McChrystal snuffs in my usual rotation, and is strongly recommended to anyone who enjoys a fine, powdery and refreshing take on an SP type snuff. An all-day, all year round classic.

Hops

There should be no major mystery about this - it's flavoured with hops. Not beer, not marijuana, the only dominant flavour is hops, and smells exactly how unboiled hops smell before they get but into a brew. If you like hops, this is perfect. Medium strength and grind.

A real wake up without a major burn.

A nice clearing blast with, like the description says, an odd lager fizz.
Bought a selection to try and this is the go-to.
