16.9 oz. bottle poured into craft beer glass

L: pale gold, almost orange; classic German clarity; very few bubbles in the column ... looks almost flat, but it pushed up a mighty big head of white to almost off-white foam, well over 1 1/3-inches tall that stuck hard at the top; keeps a decent collar of foam; almost no lacing on the way down

S: sweet grain ... some malt there, mostly cracker; definitely sweeter here than in the taste -- in fact, if it tasted as good as it smells, we'd have something; sour grain; floral at times

T: grain ... lots of grain, rice, maize; hay; not much malt flavor; doesn't have the sweetness of the nose

F: thin and light; carbonation is there enough to give it some body ... overall not bad

O: easy-drinking and certainly good enough to enjoy, but not overwhelmingly good enough at the price (almost 18 cents per ounce) to justify drinking this much -- for my tastes, there are lots of better German brews available. would be a perfect gateway beer to wean somebody off the macros. for a grainy brew, it's solid.

Poured from a half liter (17 ounce) Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint glass. The neck label pronounces the contents "ALE". A moderate pour brings forth about an inch of bubbly, foamy, golden-white head that recedes quickly, leaving a thin, receding sheen of foam. The color is a pale, ruddy-tinged golden with a splash of green. Moderate carbonation.

Lightly fruity on the nose and palate, with hints of melon and citrus and a good backbone of noble hop bitterness (subtly floral). The malt is lightly caramelly, but with a dry finish and a cleansing, light bitterness. Slight hints of spice and vanilla creep in as it warms.

This was my introduction to this style, and I have to say I rather like it. I would say this particular beer is very smooth, light bodied, and refreshing, like a good lager beer, but with enough yeasty and hoppy complexity to keep it interesting. A good choice for hot weather when you want some flavor too. Well worth the sampling at 4-something for a pint-plus bottle. Keep it up Hennessey Grocery!
