Tested on a rainy afternoon in may 2010. Poured in a FCBayern-Pilsener glass. Denotes a bright golden color, oil type, thin head of foam with acceptable duration and retention. In the smell, is a blend of floral and herbal hops. The taste have the same hops with some extra biscuity malt and olive oil. The mouthfeel is extra-crunchy, off of thirst, medium bitterness with a bittersweet finish, smooth body. In the drinkability, is the second "most crisp" beer i have taste (after Corona Extra), by far the best munich helles lager style.

A very nice surprise at the Schmankerl Stube Bavarian haus in Hagerstown Maryland last night. I'm usually drinking the Hefe or Marzen. Schmankerl has changed over to Spaten recently, as well, and I guess I'd just never gotten this one, on-tap.

A= very nice luscious rich-golden, with a white medium head foam typical of a lager.

S= very very nice on the nose, or maybe it's just what I happened to be looking for-- a good old traditional lager with some whiffs of sweet malts and traces of grassy notes with a complimentary presence of hops, in-balance.

T= an interesting bouquet in the first instant-taste, pronounced and yet not intrusive, followed quickly by a splash of honey sweetness, then all of it seeming to combine into a combined-wholeness. Nice carbonation, medium rather than tiny bubbles and yet not an over-amount of filling carbonation. Goes down nicely, didn't leave me feeling belchy.

M= very nice, clean, and it went well with the entire meal from bread to goulash to salad to sweet-sour Sauerbraten and everything in between.

D= totally drinkable.
