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.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Fluffy pancake head quickly recedes leaving slight lacing. Sour meadow aromas. Sharp cream, caramel and a slight hop finish.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2008
Esta suíça surpreende pela presença de notas amadeiradas entre os evidentes malte e lúpulo. Final longo e doce. Agradável.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful hazy orange beer. Lovely color. The nose is of malt, wood, caramel, chestnut and berries. A woody taste. Malty, full bodied with a decent hoppiness. Slightly sour, not in a bad way, adding character to this beer. Caramel and berries again in the taste. A very good palate. The finish is buttery, malty, slightly yeasty with hints of chestnuts. Nice lacing. Rerate pending.

Bügelverschlußflasche (Merci, Stephane !) Golden, hazy, mid-sized, rather creamy head with a little lace; sweet-bitter flavour with a light acidity, light bodied; fruity-yeasty-malty finish with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. O.K., neither pleasant nor bad.........

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2007
Bottle purchased at Sam’s in Chicago. The body is a slightly hazy dark gold with a large bubbled and light tan colored head. Gingerbread cookies dominate the nose with some hints of carrots cooked in brown sugar. Surprisingly sweet smelling for the style. The taste has some light notes of ginger along with apples. There is just a hint of cucumber in the finish. Interesting and refreshing. The label says that this is unfiltered and I think that helps to give this some actual character in a style dominated by vegetable tasting or bland beers.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Poured a slight-hazed amber, quickly headless, with light sediment-suspension. Yeasty aromas of yogurt, apple and oak, when combined, strike me as adjuncts. (I had to keep reminding myself of the words on the label, "...aged up to 4 months in old oak barrels", which is something you don’t see everyday in regards to "pale lagers".) Herbal hops came out late. Flavor began with an apple tartness, but further sips revealed little else as this became just another sour, nutty lager with an added splash of fruity acidity. Thin & chalky palate led the way to a brief hint of bitterness in the finish.

Dorqui (2083) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Unusually hazy and opaque color, rather dark and veiled with medium fizz. Compact and adherent head in superficial. Spiced and aged scent with aromas of straw, mint, fresh grass and malty. Prickly and mellow taste, medium bitter but in prominence on the end.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2007
This beer is a lightly hazed dark golden color with a minimal white head and little lacing of which to speak. Sweet malt in the nose coupled with corn. Light bodied with a floral character and sweet malt flavor. Touches of fresh fruit here and there as well. The finish is mildly hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Overall the beer is average and not very unique.
