Clear gold pour with standard lager head. Nose is very light and very floral. Flavor is mostly floral with minimal dry malty finish. Not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s a warm golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of flower and malt. The flavour has a light, smooth caramel sweetness, notes of flower, malt and it ends on a dry and slightly bitter note. It’s uncomplicated and charming.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is something beautiful about a 8 year old german boy with a big old stein of beer on the label. All this rubbish about alcohol is bad for kids, the sooner they learn the more responsible they are with it!
This beer has a dirty sour bitterness to it, almost a mustiness. almost like rolling up and smoking some of a mummy at the british museum. Deep amber colour bordering on piss. Feels like a beer and a cigarette at the same time, but leaves you with one free hand to scratch your balls.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1/2 liter bottle poured into an English pint glass. ABB pours murky orange with a medium-sized head. It has a lager-ish smell that is fresh but watery. The body is pretty smooth and the taste mild. There is a heavy flavor of grains. This beer appears to be made with water that has a nice granite flavor in it. A lot of the other Allgauer beers hide the water flavor but this one is light enough to let it through. The finish is stealthy; the beer just slips away into the gullet with nary a farewell.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Hi-Time. Poured a clear orangey gold color with a decent white head. Aroma is bready/grainy with something like a citrus hop. Not quite medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit wheaty, lightly grapey, with mildly bitter hop. Very decent drink with none of the common light lager obnoxiousness. It really doesn’t come across as a light lager.

Bottle from Johns Market Place in Portland, OR--Poured a golden yellow hazy body with a thick white head. Bready, grainy nose with earthy mineral nose and a faint hops spiciness. Highly sessionable, but nothing standout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a pretty decent white head that laces the glass. Fresh bread dough and spice aroma. Sweet pale malt flavor along with a little hop bitterness and the slightest citrus notes. Pretty decent helles; could be a little maltier. Nevertheless very good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty solid beer. Golden color with a small frothy head. Spicy somewhat citrus nose. A slight touch of sweetness in the malt body, somewhat earthy, and again slightly adjuncty with a lot of bitterness in the finish.
