* 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 (636) - 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_ (965) - 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 (8492) - 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.

Mildes und sehr süffiges Bier mit vollem, fruchtigem Körper. Leichte Malznote und langer Abgang

floydian1 (1155) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 15, 2014
500ml bottle with BBE 12/14. Clear pale yellow body with a thin white head. Nose and taste is honey sweet cereal malts with very light grassy hops. Easy drinking lightish bodied palate for the ABV. Average for the style but too sweet and grainy for me.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml mug enjoyed @ Augustiner restaurant @ Munich Oktoberfest 2012. A: Pours a golden yellow color. Clear. Forms a big bubbled fizzy white head. Medium retention and many lacings left S: Sweet grains, flowery hops, Lager yeasts. Authentic Bavarian Lager. A bit metallic and ashy too T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet malts but, at the same time crisp and dry in the mouth. Strong on bready Lager yeasts with a citrus and skunky hoppy end. Balanced bitterness. Again, a bit metallic and a bit of ashes taste in the very end M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Stingy citrus and bit skunky hoppy end O: Excellent drinkability in German style.
