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.

trapped (1133) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle. Orange-yellow color with very small white foamy head that dissipates quickly, doughy aroma, slightly metallic sweetish taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. A bit flat and bland.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, 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.

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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 30, 2006
Dark golden colour, white foam, aroma combines the herbal hops and the sweet malt (seems honey). Liquerish and oaky charachter, almost no bitterness. Good palate. A liitle over the average lager.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours a medium copper color with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is oak, and some skunkiness. Taste is smooth, grainy, grassy, and some corn. Nothing special but quite refreshing.

Lemke10 (864) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2014
This pours a hazy, golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is mild with yeast, citrus, and wheat. The taste is sweet but flat with a grainy citrus taste. It’s fairly easy drinking but ordinary and forgettable. Not too overall but at its price point, you can find way better brews for the same price.
