I purchased this beer with higher expectations, possibly because it's "imported German beer brewed under the purity law of 1516", which is similar to the location/standard that Weihenstephaner originates from (although the latter is a completely different style).

A - Pale. Little/no head.

S - Can't really pick anything up. Very very bland....

T - Very bland... regular... NOT special, or flavorful. Aftertaste is bready if you wait about 30sec after a nice sip.

M - Smooth. Easy to drink. Nice for summer/spring weather if you just wanna cool down, or drink something other than water.

O - I can't take a complete dump on this beer simple because it's better than macro's, and it doesn't taste BAD like some failed micros. On the other hand, it has lots of room for improvement. It's not very flavorful, nor does it stand out in any way. A positive way to think about it would be in comparing it with plain ol' unsalted butter. It's got no taste, but when combined with something flavorful (like BBQ, steak, etc) it can go well without stealing from the flavorful components of the combination.

I won't be buying this again, simply because I've got too many other excellent options to spend my hard earned money on.

Lovers of bland tastelessness, look no further.

Purchased at one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Clear golden with light head and retention.

S: Not a lot going on. Mild hop and malt notes. Clean.

T: Smooth,clean and balanced.

M: Same as the taste.

O: Not my favorite style by any means. Not bad though.
