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.

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

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden colour, small white fluffy head. Aroma is grains, grass, some earth and mild notes of paper. Flavour is grass, bready malts as well as some earthy and mild yeasty notes.

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.

TBone (12425) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2009
Bottled (BB 11/2009). A bit hazy yellow color, small white head. Ryeish, cheap grassy hoppy nose. Sweet malty, tiny traces of diacetyl, cheap cardboardish hops. Booring ...

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!

My girlfriend really liked this one. I however was more critical. It’s not a bad beer per se, I just found especially the palate to be a little strange. Interesting for sure but not something I would buy again (even if this one actually was a gift...).

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 27, 2013
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.

BBB63 (5960) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2006
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.
