Excellent... got this from Kunda (Global Village Imports) in King of Prussia, PA, USA. Beer is well balanced, very tasty, non-offensive to even the pickiest.

Very clean body of pale pale pale yellow color. It has a nice bone white head on top that is not too big but not too small.

Smells appropriate to style. It has that grassy herbal hop aroma of a European lager. Slight malt/bread aromas coming through.

Very bready flavor from the get go. Somewhat bitter on the back end but much less than I expected. Very smooth and a bit dry. There's nothing crazy about it, but it is great. I can't find anything wrong with it except that it is kind of boring, but it's a lager.

Mouthfeel is very nice, not too full bodied. Extremely drinkable.

Pours a pineapple yellow with an active carbonation. Very little head at all. Smell is somewhat floral with a spicy citrus background.

This brew has a light body which won't win you over in the mouthfeel department. Not much to say about flavor except that each drink ends with an astringent twang. Very steel like. Save your money for a beer that actually has some flavor.

A-Pale yellow, crystal clear. Huge white head.

S-Sulfur from the yeast. Light malt. No hops.

T-Grainy with a slight saccarine sweetness. Very low hop bitterness. No hop flavor. More sulfur.

M-Fairly dry. Medium carbonation. Very light on the palate. Nice.

D-This could be a great session beer (or maybe is before it makes its trip across the Atlantic), but there is a slight sweetness that makes this beer stick around on the palate too long.

For people that don't appreciate a good German lager this is the next best thing than drinking a lager at the Augustiner Brauhaus in Munich. Bright sweet bready biscuits and crisp is how I would describe this. Nothing better than a liter of this on a hot day.

Super pale straw yellow in color. Tiny bubbles of carbonation rising to the surface.

Fluffy white head. Sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smells fruity and a bit wine- like. No sulphur.

Tastes superb. This is a very delicate beer that was brewed to absolute perfection. No sulphur in the nose or mouth. Not even a hint of diacetyl.

Sweet mouthfeel. Slightly chewy but with a crisp, clean finish.

Give me a cold case of this an a warm summer day and I'm in heaven.

pours a clear golden yellow color.

A white head that fades as soon as its poured.

Smells like a light lager. A little lagery/bready sweetness.

Mouthfeel is very well carbonated. gentle bubbling all the way across the mouth. A crisp finish

Taste is pretty nice. Bready sweetness but light. Crisp tasting and pretty good per style. I would drink this one again.

I picked this up without ever hearing about the beer and just thinking it had an interesting label.
It poured yellow with a decent white head and a slight sweet and malty smell that is not very common with American lagers.
The taste is light with some wheat & fruit undertones. No real aftertaste and an overall good experience. I plan on trying this again sometime soon.

Price: 1.89 for a12oz bottle Liquor Barn Hurstborne
