MarkoNm (1123) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours a clear pale golden color, topped with an average sized white head. Malty aroma, slightly grainy with some sweet, fruity notes. Taste is malty, some grassy notes with decent bitterness in the end. Not bad, ice cold was very nice, otherwise somewhere average.

Douberd (2995) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2014
(Augustiner Lagerbier Hell) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 5.2% Golden yellow colour on the body, light activity in it. Small but thick enough white head, with good retention. Light lacing on the glass. Not very inviting aroma, malts, straw, stale bread. Taste follows, a bit sweet, with malts, stale bread and old hay. Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Pretty average.

Erzengel (4966) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
* Old rating, 0,5l crown-top-bottle, best before 10.04. Mild-weiches, schön süffig-süßliches Bier. Leicht herb im Nachgeschmack, nicht zu süßlich, schön rund.

Blassgelbe Farbe, mittelgroße Schaumkrone. Honig, Gras im Aroma. Süß im Antrunk, ein bisschen Hopfenbittere macht sich bemerkbar.

rayaron (555) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim, Ra’anana. Thanks Tom L. Very light yellow with small white head. Nutty aroma, quite bready, fruity, slightly hoppy. The taste is as the nose, light sourness, some fruitiness. Light carbonation, light-bodied. Easy to drink.

Andy_ (887) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Clear white golden beer with white head. Aroma and flavor have diacetyl, pale malts and grass. Palate is thin with strong carbonation. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste is malty, honeyish, grassy and buttery. Crips and refreshing beer, almost like a pils with the heavy bitterness. Diacetyl doesn’t work here.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Lightly toasted cereals greet herbal hops in this süffig lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the pale blond.
-This is more expressive than Edelstoff in both the malt and hop department, yet it remains as drinkable. Why drink the other one then?
-Bitterness is just present enough to encourage another gulp.
-Would love to try this on tap at one of their restaurants.
