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.

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle @ home, gift from my uncle Ino. Clear orange to amber color, small off-white head that diminishes almost instantly. Smell and taste malts, sweetish, lightly sweet red and dark fruits. Average body, decent carbonation. Ok beer.

frankenkitty (1984) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Poured a slight-hazed amber, quickly headless, with light sediment-suspension. Yeasty aromas of yogurt, apple and oak, when combined, strike me as adjuncts. (I had to keep reminding myself of the words on the label, "...aged up to 4 months in old oak barrels", which is something you don’t see everyday in regards to "pale lagers".) Herbal hops came out late. Flavor began with an apple tartness, but further sips revealed little else as this became just another sour, nutty lager with an added splash of fruity acidity. Thin & chalky palate led the way to a brief hint of bitterness in the finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a copper orange body with a thin white lacing that quickly dissipates to nothing. Cider aroma, apple and light oak. Chewy malt, and grain husk, light oak and some sweet esters. Light moth character, eh not so good.

Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is some caramel, spices and yeast. Taste is a bit skunky, caramel and a bit sweet. Medium body and carbo. Not so good.

Bottle. Good malty aroma. Dark brown colour, some small bits of yeast floating around. The flavour goes from malty to dry. Still ok balanced.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Mine was deep amber, as opposed to pale gold as others mention here. Sweet bready malt characters, and light grassy hops. Felt a touch stale in the mouthfeel, slightly cardboardy or something.

KimJohansen (10404) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Hazy amber wth a medium off white head. Sweet and somewhat fruity aroma with toasted malt and caramel notes. Grassy hops in the flavour backed up by malty and caramel notes. Finished bitter this one.
