Pour is a crisp yellow with semi foamy head and no real lacing to note. Smells of some grain, mild hops and slight malt. Taste is really nice, smooth flavors of mild malty hops and some graininess mixed in with a slight citrus on the finish, very nice beer and has been a favorite of mine since I was old enough to drink, always a good beer when you come across it.
Cheers

A real classic. A rich, golden-yellow hue, smooth and hop-forward taste, and generally quite carbonated. Great served ice cold in biergartens here on a hot summer's day.

Just had this beer out of mini-keg (5 liters I think) that I had bought in the airport in Munich. I was completely surprised at how damn good it was and I want MORE of it right now! Is there a comparable lager (German or other) out there that is available to purchase in the US? My wife wouldn't like it if I had to make another trans-Atlantic beer run. :)

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. Very refreshing, with a noticeable grassy bitterness and just the adequate amount of sweet notes to provide it some taste without tiring

Haven't had this since I was living in Toronto a year ago. Would get it in 473 ml cans at a very competitive price. (For fellow Americans , beer there is quite expensive due to government control of sales). For example I could get this for cheaper than a Bud, Molson, or even PBR.. go figure.

It's a fairly decent representation of the style. Very easy drinking, malt forward, but with a hop presence. Generally this was my fall back.. when I didn't really know what to get or had no particular mood for anything I would grab this and it was always a good choice.
