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.

Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy amber, rich head. Caramelly nose with some perfume. Sweet with fairly light body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramell, pepper and paper. Low bitterness

Interesting beer especially since I’m not exactly sure what an appenzeller is. What I can say is it tastes very fresh and lively like it has to be made with mountain water. Lighter beer but not too light, like a weak amber. I’d have another :-)

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 23, 2012
Langweilig herb-holziger Beginn. Später wenig würziger, angenehm holzig – in dem sonst hohlen Bier allerdings fehl am Platz. Nicht durchdacht... 8/6/7/6/9/5

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Smells bready and earthy. Tastes a moderate sweet, with lots of breadiness. Medium bodied. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes pleasantly sweet. It’s extremely simple, but drinkable.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011
My girlfriend really liked this one. I however was more critical. It’s not a bad beer per se, I just found especially the palate to be a little strange. Interesting for sure but not something I would buy again (even if this one actually was a gift...).

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2011
11.2oz rubber-stopper corked bottle. Opens with a reassuringly loud pop. Quite a murky, grayed reddish brown. Thin, creamy white head. The aroma isn’t so appealing, some fig-like fruitiness and attic oak. Oops. Shouldve noticed that in fine print this beer was best had by January 2011...its now mid June. Has clearly deteriorated, but still some enjoyable characteristics. Pleasant, clean malt body, light and fluffy on the palate. Would be rated higher fresh, I’m sure.

RexTalionis (2438) - FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Swing-top bottle 33 cl from Drinks of the world, Basel. Poured hazy bronze in colour with whitish head. Yeast and some sweet malty tones in aroma. Flavour slightly sweet fruity and light malty. A bit thin.

tkrjukoff (4058) - SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2011
Pours cloudy amber with a nice thick & creamy head leaving nice lace. Aroma is malty, bready, yeast, spicy, floral and hoppy. Flavor is a bit yeasty, like dark sour dough bread, malty and sweet. Quite nice indeed. Medium sweet malty palate. Finish is not distinguished but pleasant bitter.
