500ml Bottle from Reilly's (Lisnaskea - £1.79):
Quite a nice lager without really doing much to stand out from the crowd, being from Germany is almost enough to elevate it above most lagers you're likely to try in the UK but it is by no means a classic. It had enough going for it to keep you interested and the crisp finish was particularly pleasing but it's not a beer I'd go out of my way to track down again.

Smells like grass. Tastes like lemongrass. Fresh and crisp but couldn't get past the strange hop flavor integrated into the brew.

A: Bright clear golden yellow. Nice white head. Carbonation is high. Retention is on the poor side.

S: Grains. Pungent. Pepper and lemon. Crisp. Nice.

T/M: Bubbly and crisp. Grains and malts with some light herbal hops. The taste of grapes come in a little. The overall taste is a little on the clean side. The finish is dry with a linger of grains.

O: Very Good German Lager. I can taste the vintage recipe. Easy to drink, not a bad choice.

Cheers!!

Golden honey clear looking beer with carbonation present throughout. light head fades to almost nothing.

Clean malty smell with a bit of grassy undertones.

Clean crisp slightly sweet taste with a bit of earthiness to it, but very clean easy to drink.

This beer feels light, but with great carbonation felt in your mouth, which leaves a really nice finish.
