Clean, copper-colored beer. Nice, deep malt flavor comes through in the mid-taste.A simple beer, nothing amazingly complex, but very satisfying as we expect from Bavaria.

Poured from a 500 ml swing top bottle into a pint glass.

Slightly turbid, pale golden with a roughly half-inch loosely foaming head that quickly disappeared. Sparse, tiny bubbles reflect the mild carbonation.

The aroma is light and fresh, with a little sweet, dried summer grass.

The taste is what I would expect from a German lager. Very drinkable and refreshing, just enough hops, balanced with bread-y sweetness, with a hint of whiskey. The only minor complaint I have is the alcohol taste seems to elbow its way to the front a little, but not enough to interfere with the overall experience.

On the palate this lager is light, but not too watery, mild carbonation.

I'm a little biased because this is one of my favorite beer styles. But I really like this beer. I will have this one again for sure. Beware... It's so drinkable, the alcohol sneaks up!

clean golden yellow pour with a half inch of head which quickly dissipated.
smells citrusy sweet.. like a lemon orange zest. mainly sweet malts and bready yeast.
slight grassy bitterness up front, a skunky bready yeast flavor follows, then a burnt-like bitterness makes way for the final flavor offering of sweet bready malts. kind of all over the place with great flavors.
light-medium body, mild carbonation.

i feel like this could be better with a little more carbonation. a sweet lager, almost pils like, with a dry finish. very crisp, flavorful, and refreshing.
