Pours a hazy golden color with with no head. Not a strong smell but has a clover taste. For the world's oldest brewery I can see why they're still in business. A nice beer.

This is my favorite german beer. I'm lucky to have it on draft near me at the Iron Abbey. I love to drink it from a tall pilsner glass with a medium head. Highly recommended.
