COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hergestellt nach jahrhundertealter Brautradition. Die einzigartige Malzmischung aus Pilsnermalz, Wienermalz und Caramelmalz ergibt ein vollmundiges und aromareiches Bier, welches in Gaumen und Nase eine spezielle Blume entwickelt. Die Lagerung in Eichenfässern welche bis zu vier Monate dauert, gibt dem Holzfassbier seinen unnachahmlichen Charakter.

MonsterMagnet (848) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a white head. Wood, flowers, grass, bread, earthy, hint of banana and caramel. It’s like an alpine meadow in a lager, Interesting beer.

Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light toffee with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light - some caramel and with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Caramel sweetish vienna with weird perfume like fruitiness. Nice head though.

jfb (5036) - Freising, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2015
(bottle) hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of herbal hops and nettles, slightly peppery, with heavy notes of bran flakes and some honey. flavour is more bran flakes and honey, slightly dusty, with a light sweetness, some earth, floral hops and a slightly minerally finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation. another surprisingly excellent beer from this brewery!

Benzai (11772) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle @ home, gift from my uncle Ino. Clear orange to amber color, small off-white head that diminishes almost instantly. Smell and taste malts, sweetish, lightly sweet red and dark fruits. Average body, decent carbonation. Ok beer.

SinH4 (1590) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2014
Cloudy orange color with proper head. Sweet malts in the aroma, but not much more. Sweet malty flavours, hints of nuttiness, but not really distinct. Hardly any tanines or wood at all, but still good to drink.

Erzengel (6714) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
In Eichenholzfässern gelagert – ich bin gespannt. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-malzig, ein Bisschen süßlich und angenehm Herb (erinnert mich stark an das Koch’sche Malzbier von Mühlenkölsch). Zum Hauptteil sehr schön angenehme dunkelmalzige und deutlich herbe Töne wahrnehmbar. Mit viel Fantasie auch altes Holz. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, dunkel-herb, angenehm malzig, lekcer!
→ ein sehr zu empfehlendes Bier, dessen holzige Noten ich mir aber etwas anders vorgestellt hätte, da diese doch eher sehr wenig ausgeprägt sind! 12/12/11/12
