.33L bottle from the source.
Pours slightly hazy with a very pale golden color, topped with a frothy, tight, creamy head that's got plenty of glass stickage.
Aroma is soft, with a light hay note, faint floral, and hint of herbal.
Smooth and creamy on the palate, with an underlying and refreshing crispness. Light-bodied, but it leans towards medium due to the creaminess and round sweetness that begins to emerge. Nice, well-round mouthfeel. Light sugary note, bread, and Grape Nuts. Hint of golden syrup. Underlying herbal hop note. Clean finish with a residual sweet linger.
Despite it's appearance, this is a very flavorful lager and a pleasure to have tried. My only criticism is that perhaps it's a bit too sweet, which masks the hop subtleties.

Slender 11.2 oz. bottle, with a bavarian checker pattern on the label. "Classic Bavarian Golden Lager"
Pours a pale yet bright golden tone. Swarm of bubbles rise to the surface. Foam is bone white, and leaves a coating of lace. Tiny bubbles rise slowly.
Grassy noble hop aroma, strong when the bottle was opened, and subdued a few minutes later.
Mild hop bite is felt with a big swig, even in a small sip. Dry papery taste of light malt and yeast. Light bodied and a little gaseous. Vague honeyish apple aftertaste without sweetness. Easy to drink a few, best in the warmer months. Paired well with a handful of cashews.

2.85/5 rDev -22.3%
Golden in color, full, with a not too compact head, white. It seeems to be too carbonated.
The smell is very malty, but also quite hopped, with a good balance. Herbal, fresh and inviting.
The start is malty, quickly covered by a good hopping, quite bitter. Aftertaste quite persistent of hop.
It is full in maltness and in hoppiness too, with a good balance. But the taste is a little less clean then the smell.
Good body. Maybe a little too carbonated.
