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.

Bottle. Good malty aroma. Dark brown colour, some small bits of yeast floating around. The flavour goes from malty to dry. Still ok balanced.

So Locher wanted to make oak-flavored beer... And they achieved it. This is piss-poor beer, but it tastes of oak. That’s the only thing it has going for it. Stay away.

Aroma is malts, very light fruit and a hint of toast. The flavor is fruit, very malty, thick palate from the malts and a mildly tart/smooth finish.
