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.

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.

Bottle. Dark hazy golden in color with a nice fluffy off white head. Malty bready and woody aroma. Caramel oak notes. Hoppy citrusy malty flavor. Yeasty. Light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Average beer. Ok.

Nickls (1863) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Pours a mostly clear dirty blonde color that nears on brown at points; half-finger of pure white head that doesn’t last very long, but has some residual lacing. Light earthy hop bitterness in the aroma; very lagery in the aroma and basic, but not bad. Just nothing really remarkable to note; perhaps some faint malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit spiced to me, but very muted overall. Earthy and a touch bready. Some herbal hop bitterness. Actually not a bad tasting brew, especially given the style category. Thinner MF, and a bit slick. Softer carbonation. Just OK drinking, not too interesting, but nothing off either. Certainly above average for the norm in the range and especially for Switzerland.

Bright amber yellow color is hazy. Pure white foam sticks to the glass. The aroma contains a doughy grassy malt. This brew is crisp and medium bodied. There is a mild sweetness of malt on the tongue that lingers. THis beer is pretty good overall. It’s refreshing.

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.

kiwianer (3340) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2013
The head is ok, the body blond and cloudy. It smells a bit woody, wheat, malty. The taste is a bit creamy, woody, malty. 11/10/9/10/11/10

Sissio (634) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAY 18, 2014
Clear copper gold with cream head. Caramel malts, cane sugar and wild honey, but not invasive. Mellow taste with sweet caramel malty tone, again sugar cane and a light bitter ending. Nice, but nothing exceptional.

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 :-)

Birra abbastanza gradevole e scorrevole. Ma esistono tantissime stile Vienna decisamente molto più buone
