The aroma initially gives off a sour yeasty aroma which is soon replaced by cookie sweetness with spicy hop undertones; there is a touch of popcorn butter. The eggshell-white head is large and dense; the body is a brilliantly clear pale gold. The flavor includes a distinct bread-like malty sweetness with some tart hop bitterness and spicy, floral hop flavor; there is a faint buttery undertone in the flavor as well. Both the body and carbonation are in the mid-range; the carbonation provides a good bite.

Fairly light but crisp and pleasantly flavorful. A good balance of malt sweetness and hop flavors with a satisfying texture from the carbonation.

Typical Munich lager appearance.
Typical Munich lager sweet maltiness in the aroma with a hint of hops. Not bad.
Nice sweet malt with again the hops in the background, but it has a slick almost buttery character to it that I don't much enjoy and don't find in any of the other classic examples of the style.
Very drinkable, but that slick sensation builds up and I enjoy the second pint less than the first, the third less than the second.

I'll take a Hofbrau or Spaten over this any day.

A: Straw body with a white head.
S: A bit of prickly ginger and some hops spice.
T: A bit grainy but plenty of lemon/lemonade and some ginger beer. Fairly bitter. Some slight denkness from the hops. Nice bitter/lemonday aftertaste.
O: Would be great with some bread and cheese.
