Served in a flared pokal at bauer's Brauhaus.

Watchin' Jeopardy! and drinkin' German brews. Good times. This one pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of relatively short-lived white foam. The nose comprises grass, flowers, light wheat, and a very light twist of lemon. The taste takes a simpler tack, rocking just wheat and flowers, almost pilsner-like. The body is pretty light, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a decent helles lager, but lacking any kind of real character, any kind of discerning remarks, so to speak. It's nowhere near bad, just not something I would aim for, especially with other quality German choices around.

This beer had great promise. I was told by the owner of the shop I bought it from that it's one of the best lagers on the market. But as soon as I smelled it i knew he was wrong. Maybe it was skunked, cause this thing smelled foul. Good color, loads of bubbles, look was great. Mouthfeel light. Taste was ok. Slightly more complex than a bud. Not buying this again, not asking that dude what he reccomends again.
