A classic example of the style with perfect balance of grainy malts & grassy hops.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
