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.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Needless to say this brewery takes their Pale lagers seriously, this one happens to be aged in Oak Barrels. And what other pale lager comes in a flip top bottle? Their Hell Quöllfrisch is probably the best euro pale lager out there we will see how this one is. Right from the pour you can tell this is a different pale lager. It is honey tinged amber looking more like an oktoberfest. The head is white and dissipates pretty quickly leaving some lacing. This brew smells unlike any other euro pale lager. The oak aging is strong and melds nicely with the spicy, floral hops. There are some nice malt undertones that almost seem roasted thanks to the wood scent. This brew is pretty complex for a euro pale lager, and im beginning to question what kind of beer this even is. THe mouthfeel is smooth and mellow, almost creamy and delivers a huge wave of velvety oak flavor that is mixed with beautiful hop and malt. The oak flavor is pretty lasting and melds with the hop bitterness pretty well. Theres definitely some fruitiness in there too. These seem like pretty insane numbers this brew is putting up but it reminds me of what an Oaked Arrogant Bastard would be as a light, satisfying pale lager.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2010
33 cl swing-top, bb 03 Jan 2011. Nose of toasted oak, light smoke and green banana. Color of iced-tea with a lasting ring of creamy bubbles. Tastes of toasted oak and pecan on the front, turning slowly to show some vanilla, caramel, and hints of banana. Nice aftertaste of toasted oak and dry grass make for a balanced finish. Light-medium body is slightly tingly and astringent. Seems like a pretty average lager underneath, but it gets a really nice flavor boost from the oak aging.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Orange colored with hazy appearance. Little white head. Smooth and creamy peachy fruity aroma, sweet one indeed. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also peachy with some lemony and vanilla note, aftertaste dries, still smooth ending.

Bright amber yellow color is hazy. Pure white foam sticks to the glass. The aroma contains a doughy grassy malt. This brew is crisp and medium bodied. There is a mild sweetness of malt on the tongue that lingers. THis beer is pretty good overall. It’s refreshing.

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Pours a mostly clear dirty blonde color that nears on brown at points; half-finger of pure white head that doesn’t last very long, but has some residual lacing. Light earthy hop bitterness in the aroma; very lagery in the aroma and basic, but not bad. Just nothing really remarkable to note; perhaps some faint malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit spiced to me, but very muted overall. Earthy and a touch bready. Some herbal hop bitterness. Actually not a bad tasting brew, especially given the style category. Thinner MF, and a bit slick. Softer carbonation. Just OK drinking, not too interesting, but nothing off either. Certainly above average for the norm in the range and especially for Switzerland.
