Rating is vom fass (on tap). The bottled version is about 5-10% less enjoyable, but still very good.

The balance of malt and hops on this beer is simply fantastic. It's easy to drink a lot of because of the low BAC and the great taste. But also not a bad beer for sipping!

Pours a pale golden color with a huge, fluffy head.

Smells of funky hay, wheat and a whiff of toffee on top of a light herbal peak, which develops a floral appearance.

Drinks fairly light, soft with a nice effervescence during the finish.

Tastes of straw, wet grass, toffee and a whiff of caramel. Turns a little more aqueous and crackery during mid palate, with just a faint note of hops cutting through. Finishes floral, malty with a light herb impact.

This is better than it sounds, due to its perfect balance. The hops are borderline subdued, but still manage to make a difference.

While visiting Berlin I drank 22 different German beers in 22 days. I was in beer drinker Nirvana. This was my favorite and one of the few that I ask for over and over. Nice clear pale color that pours with a good head. Effervescent is just right and near perfect German lager. Breadiness and light malts are balanced by just a touch of hop bitterness, A tasty brew!

Clean and balance. Very simple and malt forward. Nothing over the top. It's drinkable. This is good but I definitely prefer a pilsner. The hop character in this one is near to nothing

From Decervecitas. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Last Days of Spring.
Grassy. Amazingly crushable. May not have the most complex profile, but this simple yet perfectly executed offerings are also very valuable

Without question the "Very Best Beer I have had" When I lived in Munich, it was on every street corner and in the parks for 2 marks ($1.00), circa 2000!
