2.73/5  rDev -23.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Deep golden, decent head.
Malt and honey in the smell, a bit too much.
Again a lot of maltiness at the taste, too sweet, with almost nothing to balance it.
Light body, average peristent aftertaste, again with malt and honey.
Not the best from this brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Pours a clean, sun yellow color, with a decent, white head, which leaves back thick sheets of lacing.

Smells of grainy, dough malts, together with a note of wet hay and sunny wheat.

Has a lower carbonation with a decent copper bite after the swallow, which blends perfectly into the straw foundation of the beer, creating a spicy peak.

Tastes of white bread, accompanied by caramel, biscuity malts and leafy hops. Its distinct light maltiness developes a spicy bite, wrapped up by mellow hay and more bread. Finishes aqueous, with warming spices remaining on the tongue, adding to the wheat biscuity malts.

Well made lager with a pleasant spice inclusion. Mouthfeel is a bit thin during the finish, while its malt profile tries to make up for it.

-pours crystal clear and yellow with a thin head
-minimal hop aroma
-delicate flavors, with the exception of a solid malt backbone
-clean fermentation leaves nothing to hide behind, but this beer has no flaw
-very dry and drinkable
-you can taste just a bit of the booze in this one as it warms

I bought this beer a few ago when i was in Germany. What a country when you talk about beer!

Prices are unbelievable low for good pilseners. This one is best before november 2011.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer looks nice, not overwhealming. No carbonation at all, yellow fluid with a reasonable head.

Smell is with some citrus. Taste is a bit too sweet and very watery. I have had MUCH better German beers than this one.

Clear straw color with white head. Aroma is really clean, just a bit of malt and a slight earthy hoppiness. Taste starts with sweet malt and a nice honey note. Finish is quite bitter and hoppy. Light body with crisp carbonation. Resembles more a pilsener than a classic helles. Crisp, clean and easy to drink but not very aromatic.

Good looking beer. Active carbonation keeps the head alive, one finger deep...fluffy. Clear golden color . Light grainy, grassy-hay taste with pleasant lingering on the tongue. Easy drinker on a hot summer day.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is grains and a bit of honey.
The taste is grains to start, a touch of lemon bitter in the middle and a mild metallic bitter finish.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
Nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Well filtered straw color with a weak head that disappears quickly. Vigorous bubbles, active.

Smell: Fruity small that has some of the grains on the outside. Subtle scents not anything that will knock your socks off through your nose.

Taste: Reminds me of a beer like apple wine. With notes of the earthiness at the end. Unique how they can extract such a flavor from such different ingredients.

Mouthfeel: A bit watery for my taste, but another good after the lawn is mowed on a hot summer afternoon brew. Goes down quick but the taste remains:

Overall: Not a bad brew compared with ones I have had before. definitely a unique flavor and a good showing if you are out for something different and not just the old hells standby.
