Poor Appenzellers! I wonder how they could call this beer! It tastes a little like soap in fact!

Too strong taste of hemp. Taste similar to bay leaves. I didn't like it at all.

Bottle (Zeughauskeller, Zurich) pours cloudy gold with a white head; strong herbal aroma dominates all other scents; taste is also very herbal with some faint malt and spice notes; herbal finish; the overpowering herbal aroma and taste are a bit of a turn off for me on this one

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 0.33l bottle from a coop in basel, 1.80 fr.
pours a cloudy honey yellow with a steady white head and a nice lacing. strong aroma of hemp, herbs, orange flowers, candy. flavour of herbs, pepper, grains. sweetish, fizzy carbonation. refreshing.

500ml Bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (4 CHF):
Strange but interesting, I was expecting a pale lager going in but instead got tonnes of spice, herbs & particularlly strong hemp flavours. Unusual & surprising with it growing on me the more I drank, it was unlike anything else I’ve drank but I’m unlikely to pick it up again.

330 ml bottle (even if I’m pretty sure that my bottle had less than that). Bought it in a Coop in Lausanne. Comment below me can’t say it any better: smell like herbal and pharmacies, is it good? I guess... at least is different. Color is a deep golden with low white head. Taste is also different, very herbal, guess it’s not bad, but it just taste like something that is good for my health, and when I’m drinking a beer I definitely don’t want that. Is not that easy to drink, even that being so peacefull has it is. Not my cup of thee, but I really could understand someone that deeply hate it or love it. Was great has a different experience.

Erzengel (7297) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle in Switzerland. Smooth mild beginning. Hints of sourish freshness, hints of dusty yeast. Slightly sweetish but not too intense or characterful. Nice sessionable but a bit too sweetish for me with hints of grain.

mile (3726) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some herbal -piney spiciness (hemp). Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor with light herbal spiciness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light herbal spiciness and light notes of vegetables. Nice herbal/piney aroma but flavor/finish is bit flat with notes of vegetables.

jfb (5299) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy black pepper and herbal sauna aufgüsse, with a light hint of straw, compost and peaches. flavour is again mostly black pepper, tuna steak and herbal hops, with a touch of papaya and talcum powder. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

gegwilson (2813) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle from a Geneva Coop. Slightly hazy golden with a white head. Herby citrus aroma. Odd taste. Quite sharp with grass, herb and citrus. Different, but not in a particularly good way.
