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 Eichenfssern welche bis zu vier Monate dauert, gibt dem Holzfassbier seinen unnachahmlichen Charakter.

Bottle (Utobeer): Hazy gold with a short white head. Big lemon and mashed banana flavour with some vanilla notes too. Very refreshing, slightly grainy feel. Sweet aroma of spice and fruit. This is a pale lager?

Bottle, Bignens Vins in Balexert. Deepish interesting clear brown colour. Woody. Lager whacked in oak, woodiness dominates, underlying beer not robust enough to cope, the wood doesnt accentuate just takes over. I normally like this brewery but this one wasnt such a success, sadly.

frankenkitty (2008) - 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 dont 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.

Bottle. Pleasantly sweet and malty, yet light and refreshing. Tasty. Didnt know Locher had a second good brew.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2006
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.

Sampled in Zurich. A pretty nice brew, goes down really smooth and crisp. In a bottle, pours a nice bit of head. Decent spicing.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2006
From a 330 ml. swing top bottle with a blurb and best before date on the back label, 2006.May.2006. Poured an clear golden hued orange with a foamy white head that settled into a thin soapy lacing, a minor amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of tart apricot juiciness, clove herbalness, a sweet breadiness with a barrel woodiness. Good, even carbonation and a crisp, dryish, tart, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Delicious tasting, a tart apricot with hints of cider, clove spicy and herbal, a subtle creaminess, traces of barrel woodiness, sweet bready malts, and a banana fruity and dry malty finish. Much better than I was expecting since it was past its freshness date, well worth trying if you see on a shelf somewhere.

Sissio (1551) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAY 18, 2014
Clear copper gold with cream head. Caramel malts, cane sugar and wild honey, but not invasive. Mellow taste with sweet caramel malty tone, again sugar cane and a light bitter ending. Nice, but nothing exceptional.
