500ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a fluffy white head that lasts for a while. Brilliant lacing. Slightly sweet, grainy malt. Plenty of grassy hop character. The hops are prominent in the taste as well, giving it a slight, refreshing bitterness. More grass/hay. Full, light maltiness. This is an outstanding lager. I've had this quite a few times, both in bottles and on cask. Franconia does it best, for sure.

Out of gravity fed wooden keg at Max's.
The beer pours a striking gold color with pretty good head retention and minimal lacing. Don't get a whole lot on the nose, just some light sweet malt. It smells pretty simple, albeit attractive. Taste is really the weakest element of this beer, as I get some moderate sweet malt flavor, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light and smooth, but thankfully not at all watery. Drinkability is pretty good, and ultimately I thought this a fairly solid beer. Unfortuantely, there were quite a few good German beers to be had at Max's German festival, and I can't really say this was one of the better ones.
