The small, fizzy, white, bubbly head dies fast, leaving nothing but a glass full of dirty gold liquid. Just a little hazy. There is some tangy fruit in the nose, with some nice schpoonk. A little corn syrup. Fruity in the front. Roasty crackers. It gets quite malty in the middle, finishing crisply bitter with some corn. It's a tasty, light lager. Enough malt and some nice grainsiness.

Had a bottle of this this past weekend at the Sunset. No freshness date, so maybe I was taking a chance, but luckily the brown bottle was there to help. I have to say, this beer tasted mighty fresh. Clear light gold with a thin white head. Original impression of some sweet corn like notes in the aroma (not off-putting) later evolved into some more grape-skin like complexity, is that Munich Malt. Cool. Beer was light and darn easy to drink, a real session brew. Some sweetness, not over the top thank god, with some pleasant toast points in the finish.

I always see this beer and its 16 bucks a six pack. I bought one.

It pours a nice one finger head, pale sun yellow.

Smells like the bavarian wheat fields in which it was grown. Hops, malt, is good.

Tastes very sweet, again with the hops and malt. Dont know where one ends and the other begins thom yorke...

Very smooth aftertaste, full bodied.

This beer is better than Das Boot.

Very pale yellow color with a foamy white head that is somewhat retained. Aroma is macro lager, the old hay/straw aroma with a hint of bread, some german malt/hop is present. Flavor is sweet with some maltiness and a bit of lagering flavor as well. Not terrible, but far from great.

4.22/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a .5l stein.

Appearance: Clear as day light orange and yellow color. It yeilded a small 1 finger head that dissapated quickly but carried along some moderate lacing along the glass. Lots of bubbles at the bottom of the glass.

Smell: Amazing freshness comming through with citrusy peach smelling aromas. Nice fresh wheat and hops aromas comming through. Basically it smells like the freshest beer you have smelled.

Taste: Delicious. I love this beer. Its so fresh tasting its like your drinking it right out of the keg in Germany. Beautiful wheaty, almost hefeweizen like taste. Nice citrus and even a little bit of white grape flavors comming through. Mild sweetness enhanced with fresh tastes. Im blown away still at how much flavor its got for such a light colored beer, especially since its claimed to be the american "Light" export at 5.7%.

Mouthfeel: A little bit too carbonated. Lots and lots of bubbles. Hate to say it but its reminding me of budlight. Could definately benefit from letting it sit for a couple minutes before you start drinking. Its a light, lager style beer thats refreshing and reminds me of warmer weather but it can definately stand up during colder months.

Drinkability: Of course, its a light beer but its got a hidden 5+ almost 6% alcohol so its easy to session but it can catch us quick. Ive been drinking this stuff since i got back from Oktoberfest but its nothing like the Augustiner you get in germany. Still, nice beer with amazing flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

clear straw color, leaves a ring and some lace. bottle doesn't say export, says edelstoff

smell is of fresh grain and a fruity grassiness. the freshness is nice and the fruitiness unexpected. smells similar to a kolsch.

flavor like the smell, very fruity for a lager. fresh grapes, bright, somewhat crisp but slightly sweet finish.

a lighter bodied beer with abundant carbonation.

sure tastes light and refreshing for 5.7% abv. too bad there's that much alcohol. if this were 4 or so % would be a great summer guzzler.
