2.93/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

500ml bottle. Lager glass. Golden color, clear appearance. White & close froth, brief crown. Intense sulfur & grain aromas, slight acidic hints & some biscuit & subtle dry nut on the back. Malty & grainy upfront. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Texture is dense, biscuit mouthfeel & subtle spicy touch. Harsh bitterness, rounded by dry nut peel in the middle leaves a dried sensation & lingers into a long bitter finish. Malts return on the aftertaste.

Flip-top half litre bottle: best before 30 July 2013. Poured @ home into my Paderborner 'Goldpilsner' 0.3 litre vase (twice).

Mid-range Pilsner/Lager golden yellow: bright, clear and clean. The head a deep foam blanket of white bubbles.

Almost odourless: slight grassy and grainy notes, but not a lot of anything.

Hop front and back in the mouth, dry and leaning towards bitter in flavour throughout the tasting. Metallic feel as the beer warmed in the second pour: not nice.

Refreshing Summer beer maybe: not a UK Winters night brew anyway! Flaters to deceive and is really only average in all aspects.

Intense golden hue, clean. A bit too carbonated, in apperance.
White and fizzy foam. Too carbonated, again.
In the smell somethin stale, not fresh. Stale bread, grass.
The taste is slightly better, but not too much.
In the end, quite heavy.
Average body, malty aftertaste, again quite boring.

I poured this beer quite vigorously and it barely produced a half inch head, which was gone in seconds. It left behind fine lacing that stuck around for a bit. The body is very light and clear.

The dominate aroma is lemon, but with a bit of a husky and herbal aroma.

This tastes very light and faint. There is a light lemon drop taste, but that's about it.

This beer was a let down, too light in every dimension.

Not a really good beer.
Looks quite ok, but the head is a bit too small.

It has not really full aromas, some barn like aromas can be found, but in general i would say that it is a bit too thin. For a real summer beer, it is not carbonated enough which makes it a bit unpleasant, like a beer that stood there for too long or so.

Not really terrible,but nothing to look out for.

Best before 08-09-05. Poors in with great and lasting head that's leaving laces while shrinking. Beautifull deep golden beercolor make presentation almost perfect for a export. Nose is very clean and only litle malts and hop to detect. Hop and pale malts give it a fruity note and wouldn't be suprised if it was Tettnanger they used. taste is also litle empty giving you a good tasting maltarome and litle sweetness before a moderate bitterness comes in. Only litle bitter aftertaste but mouthfeel is cause of the smoothness and litle sweetness with balanced hoppiness good. Drinks easy is clean and still has a good taste: wonderfull to drink on a nice and sunny day like this is!

Comes in a tall brown half-liter pop-top bottle with a white and gold label featuring a farmer cutting wheat with a sickle. The label claims that all of the ingredients are bio (i.e. "all natural"). Purity law applies. Best before 1/10/04, I opened it on 10/22/03.

Pours a very clear, somewhat lighter shade of gold with a very very small and thin white head that faded to film before I could set the bottle down. The nose is nice and malty, with the smell of freshly cut wheat. The mouth is sweet, fairly heavy, and prickly. The first taste impression is sweet malt, followed by a fairly harsh hoppy bite with that metallic taste so common in Russian beers. The aftertaste is a good combination of sweet malt and bitter hops. This isn't a bad beer, per se, but certainly also not a great one.
