Review: Bottle of Feldschlösschen Original Pale Lager, 4.80%ABV

One doesn’t generally associate beer with the Swiss, Chocolate and cooking clocks yes, but good beer? Feldschlösschen is a beer that can take on the big guns of Germany, Britain and the rest in Europe and hold its head up high. Its a bloody good beer, with a nice taste and easy to drink.

Loved the appearance of pure clear yellow colour, bright and clean with a good big frothy head on top that stays with some lacing. Looks refreshing and tantalisingly good, saying "drink me, please!". Yeah that’s a cheesy line, Swiss style! A decent beer though.

The aroma is light and malty, on the grainy side but with a little sweetness.

Taste: What a light lager should be like; a nice crisp and smooth refreshing drink. Grain dominates the taste with very little bitterness.
Not complex, well balanced, and very easy to drink. Could drink these all day long, perfect for a light session with friends.

Have to agree with some comments as this one seems pretty much underrated. I remember a fresh and clean aroma of malts and grassy hops, almost Helles like, with hints of lemon. Sweet, malty and bitter in a balanced way, it made the views from Schindellegi to the lake even more pleasant. Light to medium body, very drinkable and satisfying with no evident flaws. We had Schneider and the likes in the fridge and most of the beer in Zurich was good, but for some reason this humble local lager stood up the most those days, and made a perfect accompaniment for the swiss sausages by the bbq. Don´t get the ratings wrong.

50cl Can, BBD 14th Sep 2014, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 15th Oct 2013: finally got my Swiss tick. My son-in-law had a business trip to Zurich and brought back this and another can for me.

Pale golden, clear, bright and clean looking, on top a thin white crown.

Slightly sweet in both aroma and taste: crisp and refreshing with all the usual lager/pilsner/helles attributes. Nothing to make it stand out from all the other brews in this style, but nothing wrong with it either.

This beer is a national emblem in Swizerland, if you go around there you should try. It is nothing special, even is probably the best Swiss beer I have tried. Coulor light yellow, taste a bit metallic, smell clear, good hangover the day after... Definetly buy again
