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 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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Swing top bottle and served in standard pint glass: Hazy golden hue with a mostly fading fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of honey, grainy and bready malts, dusty yeast esters and a hint of oak barrels. The taste profile is very underwhelming with some sweet malt, flowery hops, dash of fruit, and a tree bark dry finish. I get more than a fair share of DMS in this brew. The mouth feel is more of than same with this becoming boring very quickly. I drank it fast just to get it over with. Reminds me of a "organic" beer, flat profile and uninspiring.

wlajwl (5830) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Aroma is malts, very light fruit and a hint of toast. The flavor is fruit, very malty, thick palate from the malts and a mildly tart/smooth finish.

nuplastikk (5794) - 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.

altonbrownd (5768) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle with Peter in Geneva. Dark golden body with nice white head. Nose of malts and dark berries. Taste is also malty but also a bit bitter. Slippery texture. Decent.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2006
Hazy golden color with a moderate off white head. Quite light in aromas, with pale grains, light dough and hints of light comb honey. I’d like to rate higher, but a little to sedate in the nose. Fairly thick and smooth on the palate. Light flavors of pale caramel, malted milk and a touch of pine bark. A touch of wood come in the linger. Definitely fresh oak. The linger is long and intriguing. A light lager JP Lucernaga. I like in a drinkable way.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2006
I agree with my friend TheGodfather. Nice bottle. Not much of an offering, a faint, sweet bready malt with a light indistinguishable hopping in nose and taste. Another fizzy yellow lager.

jfb (5560) - Freising, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2015
(bottle) hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of herbal hops and nettles, slightly peppery, with heavy notes of bran flakes and some honey. flavour is more bran flakes and honey, slightly dusty, with a light sweetness, some earth, floral hops and a slightly minerally finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation. another surprisingly excellent beer from this brewery!

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.
