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.

GV (18) - , NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2009
Clear beer with quickly disappearing small white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel and something else I can’t describe. Taste is sweet caramel and malt, not much hops or bitterness. Sweetness and slight bitterness in after taste. Low carbonation and almost oily texture. Nothing really special to remember.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Picked this up at the grocery store in New Glarus down the street from the brewery. Hidden underneath some other Swiss wines and dusty and forgotten about. Cool label artwork with a swing top. Tastes like it has gone through some extreme temperature changes and poor storage. Old, and dry and very light, almost slightly vinous, with some oxidized sherry notes. Not the best thing I drank that night, but makes for a neat story, having never tried swiss beer before, only their wine.

MiP (13607) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle, 5.2%. Good malty aroma, slightly farty, though. Dark brown colour, some small bits floating around. The flavour starts off nicely malty with a good mouthfeel. Gets a bit drier after a while, but still tastes OK. I would have liked it a bit sweeter.

Sampled in Zurich. A pretty nice brew, goes down really smooth and crisp. In a bottle, pours a nice bit of head. Decent spicing.

thewolf (11187) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Løgismose, Cph.
Pours deep golden. Lots of tiny floaties. Fine, small, creamy, white head. Sweet grainy aroma with a hint of fat caramel, hay and grass. Highish carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, good toffee-ish caramel, a touch of münchner malts and a slight grassy hops finish - not much, though.

oh6gdx (20387) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2009
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden colour, small white fluffy head. Aroma is grains, grass, some earth and mild notes of paper. Flavour is grass, bready malts as well as some earthy and mild yeasty notes.

TBone (12561) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2009
Bottled (BB 11/2009). A bit hazy yellow color, small white head. Ryeish, cheap grassy hoppy nose. Sweet malty, tiny traces of diacetyl, cheap cardboardish hops. Booring ...

Ughsmash (7145) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear, bright medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up honey, sweet caramel, and faint light fruits with plenty of oak and a little vanilla present.. some mild vegetal character on the back. The flavor found sweet caramel and pale malts at the core with a quick transition to spicy oak and earthy bitterness at the edges.. finished tacky with the same sweetness and oak. Lighter-bodied and dry on the palate with interesting character from the barrel. Not a great beer, but it was drinkable.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled. Dark-orange, thick white head. The aroma is fruity and malty, caramel and even marshmallow. Good stuff! Nothing special in the taste, but it’s extremely well balanced and all individual parts are good. There’s malt with good hops towards the end, with a sweeter finish.
