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.

Interesting beer especially since I’m not exactly sure what an appenzeller is. What I can say is it tastes very fresh and lively like it has to be made with mountain water. Lighter beer but not too light, like a weak amber. I’d have another :-)

JorgeLee (1679) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, Bignens Vins in Balexert. Deepish interesting clear brown colour. Woody. Lager whacked in oak, woodiness dominates, underlying beer not robust enough to cope, the wood doesn’t accentuate just takes over. I normally like this brewery but this one wasn’t such a success, sadly.

Fles meegenomen van vakantie. Licht amber kleurig helder bier met weinig aroma. Smaak licht sprankelend en houtachtige. Weinig nasmaak.

kto (757) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2016
0.33l bottle from coop in basel, 2.80 fr.
pours a hazy amber with a small white head and some lacing. practically no aroma, maybe a hint of wood and caramel. flavour of oak, chewed pencil, sour dough, bread, grapes, fruit. not bad, but strange. and I’m missing the aroma.

MonsterMagnet (1048) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a white head. Wood, flowers, grass, bread, earthy, hint of banana and caramel. It’s like an alpine meadow in a lager, Interesting beer.

mile (3758) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light toffee with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light - some caramel and with some floral/perfume like fruitiness. Caramel sweetish vienna with weird perfume like fruitiness. Nice head though.

jfb (5355) - 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!
