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 thanks to zinister, which he shared at our October Houston RB Tasting. Pours a clear amber with white bubbles for head. Nose is of grain. Taste is of grain and straw. Mouthfeel is thin. Bleh.

I think 33cl bottle but it says it nowhere. Lovely label. Blond colour. White head.

nearbeer (4012) - 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 (1920) - Washington, 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.

drpimento (2396) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Not bad, not bad. Swing top opened with a hearty "pop". Poured with a very nice large foamy frothy thick sudsy cream colored head and good lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma had a very brief hint of metal and then lots of malt caramel nutmeats and cereal. Flavor’s like aroma plus a tinge of pumpkin pie spice. Body’s a bit thin and carbonation is good. Finish is like flavor and brief.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
[bottle from Visp] Spicy melanoidiny aroma dominated by oaky butterscotch/vanilla. Hazy, dark amber, covered by a thin, off-white flannel blanket. Sweet base malt flavour immediately usurped by potent oak characteristics; butterscotch and vanilla. Not massively oaky like some extreme US brews, though. Actually kind of delicate. Balance is towards sweet, with little or no bitterness. Smooth and clean finish, moderate carbonation, medium body. Excellent--seriously underrated beer. Perhaps they changed something or my bottle was fresh. Anyone not tasting the oak in this beer was drinking something else than what was in my bottle.

jonas (6003) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle, thanks Allen. Hazy amber, low head. Rather metallic rusty aroma. Roasted malt, light grain, metallic hops, indeed it tates like a barrel - from the outside. Very nice mellow prickly mouthfeel, medium to light body. Light phenolic retronasal.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as light spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt ans straw as well as light notes of honey, leading to a dry and bitter finish. The flavor is quite light and so is the body. Thanks yespr for sharing.
