2.88/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a crystal clear golden color, with a fluffy, big head.

Smells of coppery straw, sweeter malts and wet hay.

Has a lively carbonation, together with a light bodied, refreshing tasting beer.

Tastes watery, with a bubbly carbonation, opening up the palate to herbal, dry hops. Has an overly sweet middle part with a watery, slightly leafy finish.

Not bad, regarding its recognizable hop profile, taming overly sweet malts for a longer while.

500ml on-tap at Feldmann's Bierhaus, Bremen, Germany:
Clear, light amber with a thumb-sized, bubbly white head & average retention, some light lacing too.

A basic lager aroma with some skunk & light malts plus a few grassy hops & citrus but it was fairly forgettable.

Clean with some grassy hops & basic lager malts plus a faint bitterness. The beer was fairly bland & watery in areas with little to keep me interested.

Smooth but watery & bland. Crisp & clean tasting with faint bitterness& a dryness towards the end, a pretty weak beer.

A really poor beer by German standard & another reason avoid macro pale lagers whenever possible, this one was bland & unexciting with a basic lager taste & some off-putting skunky notes early one. Not enjoyable & one that I'd suggest you avoid, I know I will be in future.

What a disappointing beer. It's straw-colored with a soapy head, which is alright I suppose, and then everything else is mediocre, weak malts and hops that just end up tasting astringent.

I felt like it sat on my tongue, and for that reason among others it was hard to drink. Will not be ordering ever again.

Poured into a Haake Beck Mug. I got the beer and the mug as part of a wedding present. Pours a bright clear yellow with a soapy white head which thins out but hangs around near the edges.

Smell is weak and like an average american lager. Taste is slightly better than a standard lager, a bit malty and not much hop flavor. I must admit that I'm not really a fan of lagers in general and the best by date on the bottle was this month.

33 cl bottle brought home from Germany by my uncle as a present.

Clear light yellow color, like straw.
Big white frothy head.
Fresh malty, a bit sour, scent.
Malty taste and aftertaste.
Rather high bitterness.
Medium mouthfeel.

A nice summerbier with high drinkability and good thirst clenching capability.

This poured to an extremely light golden yellow with a small head that quickly faded. For lace, there's a line or two.

The smell is very weak and what is there just isn't appealing. The taste helps out a little bit, but not much. It's of plain malts and the hop profile just doesn't work out very well.
