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.

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.

Blond colour, nice thick head, nice perlage, unfiltered. Nice aroma of malt, hop and honey. Good velvety sensation, some malt, a bit sweet. Ordinary palate, would improve with some more bitterness.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2006
33cl bottle brought back from a trip to Switzerland by my sister. - Pours dark golden hazy with a short white foamy head. Aromas of light malts, bread, and floral hops. Flavor is malty with lots of bread notes and a touch of caramel but also plenty of floral hop flavor as well. Palate is medium bodied and a touch on the grainy side. Not bad for a pale lager actually.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Hazy gold with a short white head. Big lemon and mashed banana flavour with some vanilla notes too. Very refreshing, slightly grainy feel. Sweet aroma of spice and fruit. This is a pale lager?

jerohen (1990) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2008
Bottled (swingtop bottle). Cloudy orange-brown coloured, white head. Aroma of wheat, like a hefeweizen with notes of banana, combined with some caramel malts, really nice. In flavour the wheat is more on the background, and it’s the caramel malts that together with the hops that dominate. Biter finish. Pleasant brew.

nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2010
33 cl swing-top, bb 03 Jan 2011. Nose of toasted oak, light smoke and green banana. Color of iced-tea with a lasting ring of creamy bubbles. Tastes of toasted oak and pecan on the front, turning slowly to show some vanilla, caramel, and hints of banana. Nice aftertaste of toasted oak and dry grass make for a balanced finish. Light-medium body is slightly tingly and astringent. Seems like a pretty average lager underneath, but it gets a really nice flavor boost from the oak aging.

Lemke10 (767) - 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.
