2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I tried a bottle of this brew at a Swiss tavern/restaurant in New Glarus, Wisconsin. This beer has been nicely bottled (similar to Grolsch), but falls far on taste. It tastes different, but just not my style. Oh well, at least I was able to enjoy the wonderful Swiss food at the restaurant!

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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Swing top bottle and served in standard pint glass: Hazy golden hue with a mostly fading fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of honey, grainy and bready malts, dusty yeast esters and a hint of oak barrels. The taste profile is very underwhelming with some sweet malt, flowery hops, dash of fruit, and a tree bark dry finish. I get more than a fair share of DMS in this brew. The mouth feel is more of than same with this becoming boring very quickly. I drank it fast just to get it over with. Reminds me of a "organic" beer, flat profile and uninspiring.

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.

Clear beer with quickly disappearing small white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel and something else I can’t describe. Taste is sweet caramel and malt, not much hops or bitterness. Sweetness and slight bitterness in after taste. Low carbonation and almost oily texture. Nothing really special to remember.

I agree with my friend TheGodfather. Nice bottle. Not much of an offering, a faint, sweet bready malt with a light indistinguishable hopping in nose and taste. Another fizzy yellow lager.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Langweilig herb-holziger Beginn. Später wenig würziger, angenehm holzig – in dem sonst hohlen Bier allerdings fehl am Platz. Nicht durchdacht... 8/6/7/6/9/5

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Flip-top bottle best before Oct 27, 2009 shared with funkybrewster. Pours a murky dull pinkish gray orange swirl with a thin airy soap-bubble looking white head, uuuuugly. Aroma of rauchbier, smokey, salty, oily, potpourri, vanilla and honey. Flavor of salty wax, floral, cardboard, nutty, soapy, ok I’m done...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy orange with a meager white head. Bready, malty, hoppy aroma but of little consequence. Lots of carbonation. Some woodiness and smoke. Nice bottle, anyway.
