This beer pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin layer of bubbled bright white head. There is really no head retention to speak of and no lacing left behind.

the aroma is basic. Pale toasty grain, bread, and a light sweetness. Very similar to an adjunct lager.

The taste is boringly unpleasant. Not much here really. A touch of sweetness is available, some toasty grain as well. A very poor show.

The mouthfeel is thin, watery, and highly carbonated with a large bubble that provides a nice tingle on the finish.

Overall it's a lawnmower beer. Best straight from the bottle when you just want a no think beer. The flavor profile is so mild in nature it feels as though you're drinking a perrier at times.

A: Clear yellow with a one-finger head. Died fast but has a good amount of lacing.

S: Grainy malts and wheat. A tiny hint of honey.

T: Very wheaty with a tiny bit of sweet honey.

M: Decent amount of carbonation with a clean finish. A medium body thanks to the trace amount of honey flavor which seems to thicken the beer by a small amount. A little watery nonetheless.

O: Easy to drink, clean finish, one of the more fuller-bodied Kristalweizen's but was still a little too watery. Overall a good beer with common flaws, so compared to others, one of the better ones.

Very clear and light golden color. Two fingers of starch white foamy head settled quickly into a thin soapy film. No lacing.

The nose has small hints of banana and a grainy malt profile.
The flavor is a dose of the same, but with a sweet aftertaste... In fact, the beer is too sweet. The overall flavor reminds me of sweetened cereal grains.

The body is thin, very thin. Very bubbly. This is practically Miller Lite in nearly all aspects.

Overall... Well, after not having one of these for 7 or 8 years, I can pmfortably say that I will go at least double that before reaching for another (except in those dire situations, perhaps at a BBQ?!)
