A: Slightly hazy gold pouts a big white head and has plenty of linger.

S: Hint of malt and a sharp tinge of bitter, lemony hops

T: Smooth biscuit up front with a transition to the lemony hops and a calm finish.

M: Light body, good carbonation and a smooth feel

Very enjoyable. Crisp, smooth and a good amount of flavor for such a simple beer. I'll make sure to get some more of these on some hot summer days.

Brewed in Munich, this is another delicious Germany beer. Simple but delicious. I had this beer a lot when I was in Germany and thought it was delicious. Color is not the darkest I've seen in a beer, but was also not the lightest. Clean, full-bodied flavor.

Poured a one finger fluffy white head that quickly disappeared to nothing, the body is crystal golden yellow.

Sweet grainy malt, hops, some lemon in the nose, refreshing.

Taste is sweet pale malt, lemony, mild earthy hops,some biscuit

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation, slight lingering bitterness that coats all of your mouth, dry, very sessionable.

A good lager that was a pleasant surprise. Not a lager fan but this style seems to appeal to me. Would definitely grab it again or sip a few next octoberfest.

This beer is a refreshing break on a hot summer day. It has a grassy and grainy taste with a malty pasture like aftertaste. There is a bit more bitterness than most beers in this category. It is a nice looking beer with clear golden body that is lined with small bubbles. The smell is pretty plain. The mouthfeel is thin but has some bite.
