4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2007 Hazy yellow with thick eggshell head. Aroma of spicy hops with unusual fruitiness (for a lager). Notes of honey, wildflowers, and bready yeast on the nose. Very malty with an aggressive hop character. Body is highly carbonated with some metallic notes. This is currently my highest rated lager.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear deep bright yellow, almost a lime green color, with a small amount of white head. Very cool looking. Aroma is doughy, wheat, malty, and sweet. Flavor is crisp, sweet, hayish, and refreshing. Overall, I found this perfect for a hot summer night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml. bottle. Clear, golden color with a medium white head that quickly dissipated. Fresh malty aroma with some hops in the background and a bit of straw. Clean, mildly sweet malt flavor with a nice hop bitterness on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle poured a slightly hazy golden yellow beverage with an ample white rocky head. The head lasted well leaving good lacing on the glass. The aroma was composed of moderate malt with notes of earth and hop. There was a medium body with average carbonation and a crisp texture. The flavor starts out nicely balanced with a slight sweetness. As it matures on the tongue, some hop bitterness shows up. The finish is long.

Wierd man, some of these german beers are not what you expect. A sort of barbonated malty beer, with loads of character. Body is strangly full too, woulkd go excellently with food.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not the nicest yellow color and a tall foam head. This is a real light yellow, similar to pale lemonade. Aroma is light grass, sticky rice and cheap tomato paste. It really isnt that bad of a scent, but thats what it smells like to me. Flavor picks up a bit, but falls short at the end. It tastes good at first, decent lager, but then it turns a bit thin and watery. Not that great of a beer, but pretty drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Medium, lacey head. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. Flowery, malty aroma with caramel mixed in. Pretty malty taste for a helles. Toffeish and slightly fruity notes. A medium flowery hoppiness in the finish. Not too sweet, just about right. A great helles. Many thanks to joss.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp appearance and aroma, both being lemony and light. Medium mouthfeel and mild maltiness in the body. Easy drinkability, but pretty blah beyond that.

Malty lager, some hops in the finish. A decent German beer, a little light.
