(500ml bottle) Slightly hazed apple juice body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light grassy. Taste is medium sweet, bread, lemon, some grassy, light apple, spice. Light-medium body. I found this to be a flavorful and well-balanced beer with mild bitterness.

Thanks, Allgauer, for letting us know that a pale lager can be a good thing. From the bottle, this pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head and solid carbonation. It’s got a sweet grassy aroma, some hints of apple, and mild herbal hops. It’s very soft in the mouth and easy to drink. The taste is a skillful balance between sweet malt and herbal hopping. The finish is clean and crisp. Nice refreshing brew.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
All around, this was a nice solid beer. Kind of an everyman’s beer. This is a beer that doesn’t so much try to impress but tries not to disappoint. In this case it works -- there’s just no reason not to like it. Poured a nice old bronze color, good carbonation, although the head faded quickly. Nose was a balanced mix of hops, malt and yeast, with apple, herb and straw notes. Taste was excellent, but, again, nothing unusual jumped out. This to me is like an old standby that you know will always be good. I expected a well-behaved, creamy and refreshing brew and Buble didn’t disappoint.

Tap at Zum Schneider. Golden, clear, white head. Noble hop aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Malty with a noble hop flavor and bitterness. Rich sweet malt. This is a real nice rich hoppy brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml bottle: $2.39 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Better than any other pale lager I’ve sampled, this is actually one I can drink and enjoy, which means it probably isn’t really a pale lager. It has a pleasant grain and wheat malt flavor, lightly bready and mildly sweet, and the gently spicy hops adds just a touch of bitterness for nice balance. The nose is lightly malty and is very nice. Nearly medium in body, it has a nice, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Medium golden color, slightly hazy, with an off-white head that maintains a thin, but intact layer atop the beer. Plenty of lacing, including one wide ring near the top of the glass. No wonder the boy on the label is smiling.

This bottle was totally skunked!! It foamed out violently when opened! Same importer handles 3-4 other German beers all of which I have sampled many times in the past! They were all first rate at that time!
Now there is a serious problem, (at least in Virginia) with totally shot product!This beer should have been pulled by the importer if not by the distributor! I have since heard of several similar instances! Ask retailer how old it is!!!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy tan color with a moderate off white head and decent lace. Pale malt and dry bread aromas with a mild sweet herbal aroma. Smooth and lightly creamy feel. Light malt sweetness with a touch of herbal dryness toward the end. Very drinkable. Not a lawn-mower, rather a front porch type of brew.

Dark slightly cloudy yellow and orange. A medium sized white head. Aroma of toast and almonds. Maybe some brown sugar. The taste is caramel and some wheat bread. Slightly sweet. A very nice rendition of the style.

Best pilsener I’ve ever had. Substance in the body, not piss-sour aroma but actually something decent. Recommended for light occasions.
