A friend visiting from Switzerland brought this back. Never heard of it, and it's never been reviewed on BA. Not entirely sure of the style, even after looking at the brewery's website (which is in Swiss German, I believe). So here we go. 50 cL swing-top bottle, best before January 2013. Tasted 19 August 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a mostly clear, medium, lightly orangey amber. Half-finger of yellowish head, not much lacing and little head retention

Smell is slightly caramel-sweet, pulpy apple aroma, backed up by graham-cracker malts. Has some lagery yeast smell, too, and a touch of noble hops.

Taste is similar - clean, crisp, and malty. I'm reminded again of pulpy fruits like apples, and of crackery breads. Very low bitterness.

Mouthfeel is mellow. Medium-light body, medium-low carbonation, finish is mostly watery.

A fine, tasty, malty amber. Refreshing and clean, with a light sweetness.
