Pours a pale, clear gold with a big white head. Fresh aroma, obviously German. Nice balance of hops and malt. Refreshing, tasty. Good for a lighter beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Random buy to close out my monthly beer budget. Pours a clear gold with big white head. Scent is grassy with hint of citurs. Flavor is just past mild sweet to start, has an earthy transition phase, and finishes with a light bitter bite. Lively and light medium bodied. Bottle - Sherlocks Wine Merchant - Decatur, GA

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 There seems to be almost two versions of this beer out there. Some taste brewery-fresh, some seem to smack of a winey character. The good ones taste of wonderfully bread like malt, with a very good hop flavor and aroma in support.
The bad ones have an aroma of grape wine, with an odd fragrance of hops that I dont recognize; perhaps it is the wine like aroma fouling things up in the nose. It all comes off almost like the smell of a barn that hasnt been cleaned in a while.
Good body, but the flavor is all wrong. A wine like flavor takes front and center, and what malt is there is overwhelmed by the former problems. Id be inclined to pass this off as a bad bottle, but Ive had this same type of experience with this beer on a number of other occasions. It may be a problem with how the beer is handled in transport, or how it is handled at the distributors, but this beer does not live up to its reputation.
For a beer this price, it is simply not worth it.

Helles olarak değerlendirirsek güzel denebilir,küpüğü bol ve uzun süreli,içtikçe köpük bardakta kalıyor.Ama tadı bana çok hafif ve basit geldi,içtikten sonra damakta çok özel bir tad bırakmıyor.Rengi berrak ve hoş.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a pour from a squat 500ml bottle into a mug. Pours out yellow with a huge pillowy head. Yeast and malt aromas, a little bit of spicy hops. Floral and honey flavors are pleasant, but muted on all fronts. Really nice mouthfeel, amazingly smooth. Overall quite a good representation of the style, but doesnt really distinguish itself.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, nydt på Berlin Bar, 31. januar 2014.
Forholdsvis lys gul tysk øl med hvid skumtop på 2 cm tykkelse.
Duft af humle, men ikke meget andet.
Overraskende god og fyldig smag. Ikke lang eftersmag, men en god sødme i samspil med det bitre fra humlen og malten. Frisk, men ikke for let.
Almindeligt middel niveau af kulsyre giver en udmærket mundfølelse.
En øl, der er let drikkelig og dog med en god karaktér og profil.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 500mL bottle. Clear, pale yellow with foamy white head. Smells like a barnyard of yeast and hay. Taste of semi-sweet grainy malt. Medium body. Id sum it up as being analogous to an above-average lager.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle 0,5L. Clear, golden colour with small, creamy white head. Aroma of cookies, butter, vanilla and some grassy hops. Taste is malty and sweet - too sweet for me. Watery beer, with light to medium body and lively carbonation.
