I had this on tap at the german club in adelaide tonight. The keg was fresh and the pour into a 500mL stein was excellent, a little head but not much, and it lingered.
Colour and clarity was as to be expected for an import lager, no dramas here. There was a hint of spice to it (whatever 'spice' may be), but the strength of the hop character was aroma, most notably however, the aroma was supported by a very strong honeyed flavour to the malt... it gave me visions of malt candied with honey, I've never tasted it this strongly in a DAB before. Sweetness of the malt was threatening to overtake the unassuming bitterness present.
Despite the strength of the honeyed taste it still had a reasonable dryness to it with a good finish, and was definitely a repeatable affair.
Serving type: on-tap

500mL can, date stamped 275/13, so I'm assuming it was canned on October 2, 2013. Maybe a bit past its prime, but I'm sure it hasn't been affected a whole lot, if any.
L - golden with nice clarity, fizzy white head dissipates quickly
S - grain, spicy grassy noble hop, yeast
T - grass, possible adjunct grain, spicy noble hop
F - dry and crisp, lighter body
O - this was always in my father-in-law's fridge and I hated it so much, but coming back to it, it's not that bad. I'd rather drink something else, but it's not as terrible as I remember.

Pours golden and is very clear.. good head on this one that slowly fades
Smells grassy with a hint of apricot?
Tastes pretty good.. a smooth drop with a slight hint of floral hops (minimal but there)
For the price this is a very good buy. Will be getting a few next time.
