The Holzar Bier, which they described as an Export, was lacking. It wasn't horrible, and I've had really good Exports, but there were very few sweet Pils malt flavors and some bitterness up front, but overall, bland. It was from the Allgäu, in Bayern, so I expected more, I guess. The mouthfeel was wonderfully thick, which helped me give it a 3.

Bought this for the swing top bottle and have had it before and enjoyed it.
Pours dark amber with a two finger cream white head that departs soon. Leaves good amounts of lace on the glass.
Aroma is of figs or raisens.
Taste is sweet dark malts with just enough hops to keep the sweetness at bay.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin but alright for the style. Carbonation is just right.
Overall a tasty lager and well recommended for the style.
Note: No telling what the age is on this beer.

A: The beer is clear dark amber in color and has some hues of brown and yellow with no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy off white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate and nutty malts are present in the nose along with hints of earthy yeast.
T: The taste has flavors of chocolate and nutty malts along with a light amount of malty sweetness and hints of earthy yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a fair representation of the style and goes down rather easily.

500ml bottle from "Grocery Outlet" of all places! $4.01 Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a small yet persistent cream coloured head. Very enjoyable malty,fruity aromas..really stands out for me. Taste is similar to the aroma but the creamy maltiness steals the show.Some small amount of grassy hop in the end. Very smooth and thick palate..easy going. I have to go against the grain on this i really like this and will be buying more. Excellent rainy weather beer.

Picked up this one my last trip to Der Berliner Kindl in Black Mtn., NC. $5.50 for one swing-top .5 liter bottle. Poured into a chilled tulip glass.
Appearance 4.0: Unexpectedly pours out a deep, golden-brown. Half-inch head quickly dissolved into fizzy, CO2 foamy residue.
Smell 3.75: Nice bouquet. Deep barley notes and a slight sweetness. Very subdued.
Taste 4.00: Front is a dry and refreshing. Middle is where some slight hints of caramel-barley sweetness creeps in and delights the palate. Finish is where some unexpected hints of raisins, wood rosin, and caramel barley sneaks in. Aftertaste fades away quickly and in a refreshing way.
Mouthfeel: 4.0: OK level of carbonation and is clearly 100% CO2.
Overall 4.0: Dry, smooth and imminently sessionable, this beer would also be excellent with food. I could see myself downing more than one stein of this bad vogel next time I get the chance.

Holzar-Bier has a thick, cream-colored head and a dark, reddish-brown appearance, with some bubbles clinging to the side and a small amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted malt, brown bread, sweetness, and tea. Taste is of old, sweet, malt, dark fruit, like prunes, and almost no hop bitterness. There is also the tea note in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Holzar-Bier finishes wet, sweet, and fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a very good beer, and I would say that it's worth a try.
