The town of Frankfurt is home to Henninger, Germany's fifth largest brewery; and their 361 foot high malt silo is one of the towns landmarks. But Frankfurt isn't known for any particular style of beer, and this smooth and undemanding lager falls somewhere between a Dortmunder-style and a lower alcohol pilsner. It's clear golden body reveals fine bubbles rising steadily towards its short but creamy head of bright white foam. The retention is good, but it eventually erodes to a thin, creamy collar; yet it's still able to leave some sticky splashes of craggy lace. The nose is fresh with a combination of sweetish, grainy malt and floral hops. The body is medium and it's crisp across the tongue with a fine, median carbonation. It's lightly sweet and grainy malt is tempered with floral and spicy hops atop a solid bitterness that leads to a lingering dry finish. It's very well-rounded and drinkable, but without any stand-out features.

Light gold color, mead/large head. A medium bodied lager, mild malts slightly sweet. Mild hops, slightly spicy. Mild taste. Nice mild flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly neutral. Middle of the road lager

Bought a 6pk of 16oz's at trader Joe's and not for the first time. Well usually my wife buys it cause she likes lighter beers and I'll drink most beers except macro garbage on a hot day.

Looks like a macro light and has a slightly sour smell but not bad enough to put me off. Crisp dry and bitter, this beer is one small step up from bud and such. Don't waste your money even though at 4.99 a 6er it's cheap indeed.

Ok went shopping at Trader Joes today got a mixed 6..this is first in the fireing line.
Ok bought in a pint can attractive if minimalist artwork , red and gold.
Pours with a massive pure white foamy head atop a pale golden beer..some nice looking carbonation strings.
Smell is the smell of cheap lager..faint hops and sweet malts.
The taste ,mm it starts reasonably enough for a lager , that is sweet maltiness..then quite suddenly it turns to this horrible metallic , acidic taste on the back of the tongue not good.
Mouthfeel is horrible dry and bitter ( ina horrid way)
An awful beer lucky I only bought the one.

Pours a very clear gold with an extremely minimal white head; lacing was present from a very small ring. The smell was a bit hoppy, but overall aroma was not a strength for this beer. The taste is lightly floral from the slight hopping with some grainy sweetness. No carbonation is noted, but the mouthfeel finishes a bit crisp. Slight astringency is also present. Similar to an American macro beer, but just a tad more character. No skunkiness noted despite the green bottle; good looking bottle and labeling.
