The German Beer Purity Law does not permit the use of malted wheat in lager beers. Fortunately, we are not brewing in Germany. This tawny brown lager is brewed with 4 varieties of malted wheat which contribute a light and bready flavor. The overall character is defined by a rich, velvety smoothness that is punctuated by a clean and firm hop bitterness. This original lager was brewed way back in August, 2007 and has been conditioning in our cold cellar for nearly two years!

Bottle @ Ulfborg Weekend, Jan 2011. Pours unclear amber with a small off white head. Sweet. Licorice and spices. Liquorice and dark fruit. Quite odd - yet tasty. Medium bodied. Nose has a Cheap Rum and Coke feel :-) . That’s it!

Draught at Q-Brick. Dark brown with orange and a thin, filmy head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, wheat. Rather fruity. Flavor of dark fruits, chocolate and cocoa, wheat, caramel. Very nice bitter finish. Ale-like, with lots of fruit, but dunkelweizen smoothness. Refreshing, butter, and flavorful. Neither cloying nor as rich as a dunkel.

On tap at Popeye’s. Served in a US Pint glass that held it’s raisin-coloured body well with a small off-white head resting firmly on top. Truth be told, I’m not the biggest fan of Baird, but I have been interested in drinking low alcohol beers lately and this one seemed okay to try, and I was glad that I did. Has a gentle roasted smell that calms my troubled mind. Taste showcased a well made, finely balanced brew that had elements of coffee, fruitcake, caramelized fruit, biscuits, fig, grilled chicken, and lots of smoke. There was a kind of nutty presence happening here as well; specifically unsalted almonds. Finish was bitter and round and had a bit of a dry touch. Really (surprisingly) pleased with this.
