4.1/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a .5l bottle into a 20oz imperial pint. Thanks to Iain for the hook up!

A: Pours a crystal-clear, bright-gold color. Lazy carbonation. Small 1/2 finger head that disappears almost immediately. Barely any lace present.

S: Toasted malt and restrained tart fruit. Fleeting hints of caramel and hops as well.

T: See above with the addition of bread crusts, and bitter, dry hops.

M: Dry and spicy. A touch of graininess. Quite prickly and very refreshing.

D: An excellently quaffable beer for this warm spring day. Extremely sessionable.

3.98/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Clear golden pour with a large white creamy and a bit airy head. Slow dissipation leaves rich lacings.

S: Mild smell. Sweet malt. Honey. Some faint bitter hops, well balanced.

T: Sweet honeylike malt. Bready. Nice bitterness.

M: Light body, just true to the style. Rich carbonation. Short bitter aftertaste.

O: Nice one. A bit sweeter than others I've had earlier, but the bitter hops balances.

3.08/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

I bought this beer a few ago when i was in Germany. What a country when you talk about beer!

Prices are unbelievable low for good pilseners. This one is best before november 2011.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer looks nice, not overwhealming. No carbonation at all, yellow fluid with a reasonable head.

Smell is with some citrus. Taste is a bit too sweet and very watery. I have had MUCH better German beers than this one.

3.91/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured a golden colour, small head, retained some lacing, clear. Aroma was slightly malty with notes of apple. Tasted honey, malt, grass and apple, finish was slightly doughy. Had a light body, soft carbonation, smooth enough to go down easily. Overall great value for the price (10.99€ for 20 0.5 litre bottles). Beer was balanced and refreshing. Would say it borders a Maerzen.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Well filtered straw color with a weak head that disappears quickly. Vigorous bubbles, active.

Smell: Fruity small that has some of the grains on the outside. Subtle scents not anything that will knock your socks off through your nose.

Taste: Reminds me of a beer like apple wine. With notes of the earthiness at the end. Unique how they can extract such a flavor from such different ingredients.

Mouthfeel: A bit watery for my taste, but another good after the lawn is mowed on a hot summer afternoon brew. Goes down quick but the taste remains:

Overall: Not a bad brew compared with ones I have had before. definitely a unique flavor and a good showing if you are out for something different and not just the old hells standby.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

-pours crystal clear and yellow with a thin head
-minimal hop aroma
-delicate flavors, with the exception of a solid malt backbone
-clean fermentation leaves nothing to hide behind, but this beer has no flaw
-very dry and drinkable
-you can taste just a bit of the booze in this one as it warms
