Unfiltrierte Natur pur. Der echte Biergenuss wie zu Urgrossvaters Zeiten.

The Dan Journal #268. Tasted 7/2/09. 500ml Bottle. Mildly hazy with a pale golden hue. Spiraling white head. Grainy cereal aromas with a hint of strawberries and faint hops. Light to medium bodied with a grainy malt note. Tight yet controlled effervescence. Faint citrus note. Dry finish that lingers on the tongue. Crisp and tasty.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 2, 2008
Coloração dourada pálida, creme pouco denso e consistente, se desvanecendo rapidamente. Aroma e paladar quase inexistentes de lúpulo. Final amargo e metálico.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours an extremely pale hazy yellow beer with a lasting white head. The nose is citrussy, malty with notes of chestnuts and soy sauce. Mediocre taste. Watery and grainy. Low bitterness. Astringent. Some lemon and lime showing up. Poor malt and hop profile. Light bodied and boring. Buttery finish. A bad Zwickel.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - JUN 29, 2008
Garrafa, junho/2008. Trazida da Suíça e degustada no Brasil. Pilsen mediana, com um bom aroma lupulado, mas com um sabor muito fraco. Se o sabor seguisse o aroma, teríamos uma pilsen muito parecida com as alemãs.

asheft (2700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
[on tap in Interlaken] Malt aroma ruined by high diacetyl, popcorn butter. Slightly hazy golden straw with nice, lacy white top. Fresh hops and crips malt flavour that has a sort of citrusy finish reminiscent of a British ale (i.e., from the yeast). Massive diacetyl levels present, but good bitterness. Medium carbonation that goes well with the bitterness. Light to medium body with still some citrus in the finish.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Draught at Hooters Interlaken. Slightly hazy yellow. Bready and doughy aroma with some light, grassy hops. Flavor is dry and slightly bitter. Some hops in the end. Palate is light and creamy with low carbonation. Malts are a little lacking, and just not interesting overall. Reminds me of a better, cleaner version of coors.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2007
Light yellow colored, medium sized white head. Slightly hazy appearance. Lemony and estery aroma with some hints of yeast. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is similar: lemon dominates, some fruity esters and mild hops also there. Aftertaste lasts with this mild hops. Not very interesting one.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Purchased in Switzerland, somewhere between Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen: Bright golden in the first pour; became cloudier -- and tastier -- with the sediment from the second pour. Malts were chalky, dry and cracker-like, with only a slight sweetness. Bitterness was zingy, followed by some herbs and spices. Faint yeast flavors surfaced in the background. Nothing spectacular, but not too shabby, either.

(Hooters, Interlaken) An unfiltered beer. Lightly hopped, medium bodied pleasant quaffing beer.

decent unfiltered beer, but nothing remarkable. Best of the Rugen brau beers - most give me the shits. Cloudy unfiltered brew with hints of citrus fruit
