There is a grainy, earthy, crayon-like malt aroma accented with some light fruitiness akin to pear and apricot. The head is white and leaves webby lacing; the body is a very pale golden hue. The flavor is dominated by sweet, grainy malt with some doughy sourness, along with some spicy, low-level hop bitterness and a sweet, grainy finish. The feel is rather light and crisp with moderate carbonation.

Very light, smooth, and drinkable with plenty of cleanly sweet malt and just a little punctuating bitterness. It also has a sour quality, which isn't too appealing.

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.
