I'm beginning to think all beers brewed under Germany purity laws are smooth beers. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The smell is bread and malts. A very crisp, clean and smooth flavor.

Got this on tap at the brewery. Very malty, with little taste of hop. A good, refreshing one for the summer, but nothing too special. The malt was too dominant though.
