Stumbled across this one by accident. It poured a almost clear, but little hazy, light yellow gold. The white bubbly head builds one finger high and dissipates, leaving average lacing.
The smell is flowery hops and light malt notes maybe some lemon.
Tasting the beer, the flowery hops are up front. Bread and a little tart follow in the middle, while the malt backbone is towards the end. Very balanced and very drinkable. A very nice thirst quencher.

Served via gravity at Ayingers in München.

slightly hazy yellow with an unbelieveable white head.

smelled and tasted strongly of breads and cereal grains. very slight hop character.

so damn drinkable. 3 L went down in a hurry.

if there is heavens manna on earth, this is it. everything about this beer is glorious.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a bright yellow color and a clear consistency. There was an inch and a half of creamy, long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A malty aroma, with some traces of hops as well. About what you'd expect from the style.

T: Tasted of malt, with hints of hops (not too much), and a little bit of grain mixed in. An incredibly well-balanced flavor. Won't win awards for originality, but definitely succeeds in what it does.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a crisp, clean finish. Light-bodied.

O: I'm not the biggest lover of lagers, but this is a drinkable, easy to like beer.

16.9oz bottle into tulip snifter.

Pours a clear, bright yellow with a thin, bubbly white head.

The aroma and taste iare crisp, with light biscuit notes and grassy hops.

A medium to full body with fairly average, bubbly carbonation.

A fairly simple beer, but enjoyable.

Straw yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a huge soapy white foam that slowly dissipated to a wispy cap. Biscuity and bready malt aromas with hints of earth grass and floral hops. Smooth delicate feel and a surprisingly thicker, fuller feel given the appearance. Pleasant delicate carbonation. Bready and biscuit flavors up front with light, tangy, spicy hoppiness lazily carrying through the middle to a crisp biscuit finish. Maltiness was very much like a pilsener, but with a more delicate feel and less hop character. Refreshing and enjoyable nonetheless.
