Thanks to Stefan my German students from this region for the gift!!

Pours a clear, golden color with a 2-finger white head. Lots of carbonation seen rising. Decent lacing.

Aroma is sweet, light hops, some grassiness.

Taste is of light malts, sweet, light hops and some yeastiness. Overall, quite light and very clean.

Mouthfeel is light bodied, crisp and cleansing.

Overall, a decent brew. Very sessionable. Easy drinking and quite good for the style.

.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.

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.
