Popping the top releases that hoppy aroma that does have a whiff of skunk, but perfectly pleasant. Fairly sharp with a light body, but nothing watery about it. Golden color with a fairly coarse head. Pleasant flavor with that same hoppy fragrance as you sip. A touch of malt and a little more sweet than typical lagers.

Not a bad drink but probably needs to be icy cold and really fresh so you get a nice froth. Seems to be all about the perfume of the hops. Modestly bitter aftertaste. In the right mood this could be fine, but it is a little unusual.

A: Light bronze with good clarity. Lots of carbonation. Bubbly bone white head with light retention and lacing.

S: Lightly toasted malts, cracker barrel grain. Floral and grassy
hops. Hints of lemon and spice.

T: Grain. Powerful german hops. Mild peat and warming alcoholic backing.

M:Full flavored dry and crisp finish.

O: A fine beer that I will often revisit. Pairs excellently with German cuisine.

Served in a flared pokal at bauer's Brauhaus.

Watchin' Jeopardy! and drinkin' German brews. Good times. This one pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of relatively short-lived white foam. The nose comprises grass, flowers, light wheat, and a very light twist of lemon. The taste takes a simpler tack, rocking just wheat and flowers, almost pilsner-like. The body is pretty light, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a decent helles lager, but lacking any kind of real character, any kind of discerning remarks, so to speak. It's nowhere near bad, just not something I would aim for, especially with other quality German choices around.

Serving type: on-tap
