"Considered by its many devotees to be one of the finest lagers brewed in Britain. The brewing of Hürlimann is strictly controlled to ensure that the beer remains true to the original Swiss recipe. Only the finest Swiss yeast and Challenger hops are used in this all malt brew to give a full lager flavour."

Ungstrup (34634) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Bottled as Hürlimann Sternbräu Export Bier. A golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of caramel and cardboard. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and cardboard as well as lighter notes of caramel. Thanks yespr for sharing.

johndoughty (4994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle.Yellow with a small head.Slightly cardboard like flavour. A bit tinny and left no lacing. This is what gives lager a bad name. To be avoided.

Embrouille (2842) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 4, 2008
Bottled 50cl. Sampled at Brasserie Federal, Zürich. It pours a pale golden beer with a creamy head. The nose is of hops and soy sauce. It reminds me of Feldschlösschen original. Quite a lot of tobacco sneaking in. The flavor is maltier. Low bitterness. Poor hop profile. Light bodied. Soy sauce showing up again in the taste. Pretty much like a Feldschlösschen indeed. Not much lacework. Unpleasant finish.

CH-303 (1993) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Appearance: Light golden. Very little head. Quite fizzy. Aroma: Not much. Bit of malt and hops, I guess. Taste: Some malt and hops. Quite boring. Info: 330ml bottle, 7/8-2007

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2008
Shep’s bottle. Gold colour. Quite a foxy malt aroma. Taste has some malt, biscuit and a pleasant citric tang. Not very bitter, but it has a bit more character than most pale lagers.
