355ml undated, green bottle served in a snifter.

A: The body is crystal-clear light golden-yellow, with a very short-lived fluffy white head. Zero sediment.

Aroma: Light aroma, mostly lacking the somewhat expected skunkiness. Grassy with sweet grain.

Taste: more skunkiness (actually, this tastes fresh and the 'skunk' is from the hops, I believe) and hops here than in the nose, and more flavor than one might expect given the light appearance and aroma. Lightly earthy hops with a hints of lemon, fresh hay and biscuit.

M: near medium bodied with rather aggressive carbonation that imparts a crisp feel. Dry finish.

O: haven't had this in years, but pretty much as expected. Works best with food.

Serving type: bottle

the beer has an average appearance. Nothing that would stand out in any persons mind as unique.

smell is of strong malt and grass. very pleasant.

taste substantially overlaps with the scent. Taste comrpises flavors of grass, toasted malt, etc.

mouthfeel is agreeable. carbonation is mild, bubbles are small. Leaves the mouth feeling a bit wet.

overall, this brew is not very complicated. It's straight forward and easy to appreciate. Perfect all year round.,

A - poured with a large head of white foam on a clear, golden body. The head settles quite slowly and leaves nice lace.

S - rich, thick malt aromas with light, spicy hops.

T - clean malt up front with a rich sweetness that kicks in towards the finish. Lingering malt with just a hint of spicy hops and light bitterness.

M - medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - a very nice german lager, the aroma is virtually perfect and the flavor profile is spot on as well.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a glass mug. Pours pale golden with a two-finger length white head. Plenty of lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is of lightly toasted barley malt and hops. There's a mild citrus aroma. There are flavor is sweet, bready, with notes of citrus and some hop bitterness. It's a very well balanced flavor and it's delicious. The mouthfeel is light. It's crisp with adequate carbonation. The finish is dry. It's very refreshing. This is an excellent lager and deserves top ratings for this style.
