Nice beer, crispy, fresh. In my country is a little expensive but sometimes i can find it in beer sales.

Not bad. Nice look for a lager, but of course, the head disappears quickly upon pouring. Tastes somewhat strange at first, almost as if some kind of powder had been mixed with water. Initially, I wasn't a fan, but after a few more sips, it started to taste relatively solid.

All in all, I would say this is a pretty average lager, which came as a bit of a disappointment to me, as I had been expecting considerably more of a supposedly premium-class German lager.

Nice, rich yellow appearance with hints of gold. Slightly hazy. Creamy, white head. Aroma of mild, grassy hops with some bready malts. I don't taste anything too distinct. Maybe some lemon with grassiness from the hops. The overall flavor is very nice. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Dry finish. Refreshing. Overall, I really liked this one. Although it's nothing special, it has an easygoing character that I find very appealing.

Who knows how old this bottle was and how it was stored.

Great German Helles lager. Found this when I was exploring various Biergartens in Munich.
