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. 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.

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.

Thanks 17thfloor for sharing! Pours a strange dark golden, just very light, though it does have a decent lingering white frothy head. Aroma is surprising, very smoky, some bacon and smoked campfiery malts. Flavor has an immediate smoky note before becoming sweet and caramely. Some toffee and toast become more prevalent through a strange and off balanced finish, I can see where the beer was maybe before and I think I am trying to picture that, but its a bit off all around. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Wow that is different. I think the sweet maltiness just takes over becomes cloying

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Smells bready and earthy. Tastes a moderate sweet, with lots of breadiness. Medium bodied. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes pleasantly sweet. It’s extremely simple, but drinkable.
