The use of bottom fermenting yeast at lower temperatures makes for pronounced bitterness & a mild floral aroma that comes from the use of North American Cascade Hops.

superspak (4315) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2016
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good Munich helles lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

330ml bottle server in an ordinary glass. Pours a clear pale color forming a small white head with low persistence that leaves some few spotty lacings in the glass. Nose is artificial. Pale grains. Strong notes of adjunct malts. Corn and rice. Cardboard. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Pale malts, corn, rice, cardboard. Grassy hops profile. Low bitterness. Cardboard notes. Light body. Medium to low carbonation. Grassy hops and sweet pale malts in the aftertaste. Low drinkability. To be avoided.
