Poured from the bottle into a tall tumbler glass.

Bright light brass to straw body. Good slow rising carbonation, in great streams very fine in appearance. Head is soft white with a thin cap of foam of about half a finger while drinking all the time. Real nice looking.

Light aroma of malts on the nose. Pretty subtle, that classic doughy angle comes out just a little sweet.

Palate is extremely light and airy. Malt density comes with just a touch of honey on the mid palate, and finishes with a very slow growing pils density. Slightly chewy body with a light flavor and a hint of brightness. Nice body with some popping hop carbonation a bit. There's also a fruit orange taste to it on the finish almost as well which is real nice..

Overall a refreshing brew, with nice subtleties.

This is the best beer I've ever had. If you are lucky enough to come across this beer (especially outside Germany), buy all that you can.

Drank this beer on tap in Munich. Hands down the best Lager I've ever had. It's so smooth and drinkable with just enough malt presence to make it sweet but not overly so. The carbonation is reserved which works perfectly for this beer. I wish they could export a fresh keg to my local German Biergarten in Florida.
