Bought Paulaner mixed 6. Try 1.

Difficult for me to discern between gold lagers, especially when in Europe, drinking them fresh when they seem to shine for me.

A: Pours a clear golden straw yellow body w tiny, visible carbonation. The beer has a 1 finger white head with large bubbles that reduces to thin ring with dotty lacing.

S: Mild, grassy, grainy, biscuit. Not enough, not enough fresh hop.

T: Follows smell but ample, with sweet bready malts and nice blend of bitterness of the grassy hops. Richer, maltier than most Helles Lager.

M: Very good feel, good weight, medium bodied with prickly amounts of carbonation. Clean & refreshing. Great food beer.

O: I'd love to try this in Germany, and in any oyster bar or seafood place.

Balanced German flavor, not complex, lighter than heavy, straight-ahead good tasting beer.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: yellow-gold, clear, small head about 1/4-inch of white foam ... the color and clarity are beautiful, the pour/head lackluster

S: bread malt bomb ... very sweet; a bit of grain in there and a light hop note, mainly black-pepper

T: sweet bread malt ... so sweet it's fruity, apricot/peach, very English pale-like; there's a nice black-pepper hop bite under the thick layer of malt sweetness, but it's main service is as a balancing note -- it's not overly bitter, though it does grow as you work through the glass; there's just a hint of stale dust and a little skunk in there, but neither are detractors, just present

F: what I love in lagers ... light, bordering on watery, but very crisp -- a brew you could drink all day

O: fantastic ... light fruity sweet but very lager crisp, and the pinch of black-pepper hops is tantalizing -- you think you want more, but its restraint is its strength. a beer I will seek again and again, likely in 12-packs if I can find them.

Very simple, clean, pale yellow beer with a slight grain flavor, with a little bit of malt sweetness vey light - kind of scary how fast this beer disappears - could drink it all day during warmer weather

Straw gold with a few slow rising mini bubbles. Crystal clear. Topped with 5 fingers of fluffy white head with great retention.

Straw, fresh hay, malt, wet dog, a hint of skunk, and children's aspirin.

Big malt as the style should have, its got it to a classic tee. Fresh bread, little hops on the end, mostly big malt and bread, as well as biscuit.

Medium body, smooth crisp finish. Medium to low carbonation. Overall goes down really smoothly.

Found and drank in Chiang Mai, Sept 20th, 2015. Excellent brew on the taste and feel.

Pale golden color, finger of head with little retention or lacing. Nose is grainy, grassy hops, and a mild bready finish. Toasted grains, buttered bread, grassy hops and hints of sweet corn on the finish. Easy drinking German lager.
