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.

CannibalBeer (2) - Lausanne & Locarno, SWITZERLAND - JUL 7, 2006 does not count
Hazy orange with a thin white head. Both malty and hoppy and quite light. Strong aroma of wood and slightly smoky. Very good for a pale lager.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Unusually hazy and opaque color, rather dark and veiled with medium fizz. Compact and adherent head in superficial. Spiced and aged scent with aromas of straw, mint, fresh grass and malty. Prickly and mellow taste, medium bitter but in prominence on the end.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2011
Orange and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Sweet aroma, notes of coco and wine. Sweet flavor, more coco-nut, faint acid too. Creamy, watery texture. Lively carbonation.

nuplastikk (4334) - 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.

This one was tough going - sharp palate and not very enjoyable

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Clear, amber body with almost no head, just a ring of white bubbles around the edge. The aroma is boring and bland, some grains, light honey sweetness, some odd fruitiness of lemon and a touch of something like wheat bread. The body is thin and lackluster. The flavor is sweet with just a hint of bitterness. The oak character is conspicuously absent, which isn’t really a problem here. The elements of DMS (corn) are just too strong here, and really takes away from this one. If it was a little cleaner, this could be pretty nice. As it stands, it’s probably not worth another visit.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is dry breadish and somewhat oldish dry too. Flavour is mild breadish and light bitter to light hops fruity. A bit oldish too. Mild breadish and dry finish.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2008
(33cl swing top bottle) Hazy, light-amber colour with a medium-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet and yeasty cara-malty nose with subtle fruity notes and a touch of marzipan. Sweet flavour, almost medium bodied. Cara-malty, slightly nutty taste; sweetish and light acidic malty finish (17.10.07).

Golden clear amber colour. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Light sweetness caramel and pleasant toasty malt in the flavour with some bitterness and mild nuts.

jonas (5617) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2009
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.
