A: Golden clear beer poured into a pint glass producing a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind a thin rim of lace.
S: Grain, lemongrass, and hops all contribute to a fresh aroma.
T: Sweet fruits with a hint of white grape and a slightly malty backbone in a fairly balanced brew.
M: Light body with active carbonation.
O: A very easy to drink beer that I enjoyed but will not need to try again. I am glad I tried it while in Germany.

500ml bottle mindestens haltbar bis 31.01.12.

It pours a stale looking gold with a bright white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing.

Not a huge amount of smell here, grainy, watery, a hint of sweetness.

The flavor is weak with some buttery biscuit, some fruitiness, grain, and a hint of hops in the finish. It isn't horrible, but nothing to behold, an easy drinker.

BB 24-05-06. Nice and well lasting white head and a pale golden beercollor. Nose is very green and hoppy flowery/lemonlike with a litle spicy yeast note. Fresh sweet summermalts in the back complete a IMO fine nose. Taste is also very clean and fresh with decent aftertaste and well dosed alcohollevel. Could maybe just have a litle more body and bite but IMO a pleasure to drink.

Served cold from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Golden colour, clear, fine bubbles rising, fluffy white head. Great looking beer.

S) Good odour, has honey sweetness, hints of coconut, but who are we kidding this is a German lager. Hints of the hallerau hops.

T) Nice cleanish taste, with a little bit of malt depth. HInts of depth from a hop bitterness.

F) Good mouthfeel, on the malty side of the lager spectrum, so this is one to digest rather than throw down. Carbonation just right for the style. Really faultless in this category. I'll never give a 5 until I find the one true bier brewed by God, so 4.75 it is.

O) NIce lager, this ticks the boxes and can happily recommend it to German lager fans, although it isn't in the Bundesliga of Helles.

Yellow color, very clear, with greenish reflexes. Average head.
The smell is quite malty, but, for a hell, even quite hopped, and not too malty.
The taste is more like an hell, even if some hops it's still noticeable. But the taste is very watery and tasteless.
Some malt in the aftertaste, and hop again, but very light and not persistent.
Scarce body.
Drinkable, but surely, not search for another one.
