500ml bottle, sample from importer.

Pours a slightly hazed dull straw golden hue, decent lacing. Aromas of doughy bread, spicy hops, and a nutty yeast. Very smooth and crisp, slight slickness within the medium body. Very malt forward, just a kiss of sweetness. More bready overtones and cracker-like graininess than anything else. Some spicy herbal hop and nutty yeast in the back. Very enjoyable.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

This is about a medium yellow in color, maybe just a shade or two lighter, with a yeasty thickness that makes it opaque. A little bit of clarity can be given by not ensuring the entire bottle is swirled and poured, but the yeast presence key to the beer really thickens it. The head is a pretty clean white or close to it, a creamy and soft half finger that lasts and drops some equally creamy lacing.
It's moderately sulfuric in the nose, some fruity esters to the yeast with an earthy dryness balancing and some noble hops bringing in a very slightly herbacious note with some grass. There's a very slight spiciness with the noble must, but almost unnoticeable in the smell. It fades off to just include more of a dull earthiness.
This was in a brown bottle, but I get a bit of the skunk at first. Given time, it fades out of the flavor as well of the smell. It also begins with an almost creamed corn element to the sweetness which also, thankfully, gives way to softer, fruitier notes balanced by dry wheat-like malts.
The body actually reaches medium, though is as soft as it should be with a good crispness that never fades or falters. It has some dryness on the palate toward the end and is pretty smooth altogether.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass because i saw the word "naturtrub" on the label thinking it was a weiss beer.

Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a small, yet pronounced head that leaves a small ring of foam on the lid of the beer. Appearance gets just below average since i am rating this to style, where i will just go average for the appearance since this is unfiltered and can't compare it to anything but the head retention does not resemble a helles. The aromas are sweet bread malts, those of a helles, with an nice buttered toast component, yeasty sourness and a touch of citrus. The taste is spot on with a helles in terms of initial flavor but then gets very thin and forgettable. the mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, even with the unfiltered characteristic of this beer. not perfect but still enjoyable. Overall this is just average for me. not worth seeking out unless there are no other suitable choices. Augustiner Helles trump the shit out of this, as does paulaner, hacker pschorr and even the spaten helles.

cheers

330ml bottle with a plastic cap hanged in a wire.

A: Pours a pale yellow color. Bit hazy. A huge bone-white head very bubbled is formed when poured. Good retention and some lacings left around

S: Smell is really simple. Mild sweet matls and bit grassy hops

T: Taste is also mild. Sweet malts and hops basically. Mild bitterness. Refreshing. Not much aftertaste

M: Very light body and high carbonation

O: Good and refreshing beer. Recommended for summer days :)

Pours a crystal clear, pale, golden color with an average, lightly carbonated head.

The nose is a nice mix of clean, dried hops and bold yeasts.

The body is similar to the nose. Clean, easily drinkable and refreshing. More flavor than many of the macro lagers in the states.

Very easy and nice to drink!

A: Pale straw in color, somewhat of a head with an aggressive pour, but mostly bubbles..

S: Not much of anything besides some very light malty, and possibly some rice smells in there as well.

T: A toasted character, and some malt. Not a lot of hops, almost a slight earth like quality. And for being in a green bottle, not skunky at all.

M: Light crisp and bubbly.

D: It goes down very smooth and easy. And at 3.33 a six pack, not a bad choice. Still, mostly it tastes like carbonated water that had a one night stand with some grains.. But style wise it delivers what it promised.
