Appenzeller Holzfass Special Cream Lager
Amber color. Curious, smoky aromas and flavors of turkey jerky and smoked ham skin, warm rubber band and raffia, honeyed apple bread, and forest after a fire with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and an even, interesting, medium-long grilled romaine, chestnut honey, smoked nuts, and dried apple and pear finish. A very distinctive and flavor-laden lager that is difficult to categorize (seems slightly braggot-y), yet provides interesting flavor paths to explore with cuisine.
