500ml bottle. Pokal glass. Pale golden color, clear appearance. White froth, close but discrete crown leaves a thin lasting layer on top & some lacing on sides. Yeast, slight sulfur, floral, citric hints & biscuit touch to the nose. Malty upfront, light sweet & grainy flavor. High to medium body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Clean lemon zest-like bitterness & dried mouthfeel but maltiness –shown as a biscuit flavor- arises & balances a long gentle bitter finish. Lemon juice memories on the aftertaste.

Straw yellow in color with lots of brightness through its completely clear body, this beer develops a soft clean white head on top that peaks at just less than one finger. It holds up pretty well and manages sturdy patching that eventually drops to spotting but continues to cling pretty well.
Grains up front hold with a pale malt with a lemony tang that's balanced by some grass and herb hops notes.
A lightly sweet beer is kept in check by a dry/doughy biscuit malt, some green grape and red apple mostly. Lemon comes in to add another dimension with zest, and the hops are grassy and herbal as in the nose.
This beer is light, clean and refreshing all around. It has a strong carbonation that isn't allowed to get out of control even with a crispness that never stops biting; as such, it's fluffy in the mouth while biting. It has just a little dryness to balance the feel. It starts off grainy but ends clean.

Pours a deep clear gold with a fizzy white head. The head doesn't last long but does leave a small amount of lacing. The aroma is mild, with light notes of cut grass and grain. The taste is similar with the addition of light hops earthiness. The mouthfeel is toward the lighter side with a nice bite from the hops on the finish. A very good lager.
