Review: 50 cl. Can of Eidgenoss: ABV: 5% vol

Really dull looking can has a picture of Swiss cross/flag on the can, but it doesn’t really stand out amongst all the other beers on offer.

On pour, dark orange coloured beer with a reddish hue and a nice big frothy white head, all looks good.

Head maintains and there is also some nice lacing.

The smell was lagery, got the barely and the yeast, the malts, and fruits all on the nose. Very nice and piercing, a nice smell.

On taste get a nice smooth pleasant drink, that is very tasty, not bitter and very easy to quench.
Nice enough mouthfuls, not bad, I like it, it is very good, very easy to drink. Malty and light bodied.

A long lasting pleasant taste that is left in the mouth for one to savour.
Creamy mouthfuls. Very smooth. Not a large array of flavours, and it is very light but it is all nice and easy to drink, very easy to drink.

Lovely. Quiet strong actually, definitely felt the alcohol after.

Like it a lot, very refreshing, recommended.

A: cloudy amber, very little lacing or head

S: caramel, brown sugar, dried apricot

T: medium attenuation, a bit too sweet for a lager, non-distinct malty grain, caramel, little or no hop bitterness

M: medium-light bodied

O: was looking forward to a stronger flavored, dark Swiss lager but this came up quite short. very sweet on the nose and lingering taste.

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.
