Can from The Bier Stein. Medium-strength grassy nose, light hops. Pale straw color. Solid sweet initial / grass, biscuit, cookies / a small rush of mild sweetness in final and baby-step hop tracks. Thin-medium body. Pleasant stuff. A bit on the sweet side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I finally got myself a lager/pilsner glass(then bought a slightly different one at IKEA) anyways I served the Longfin Lager in a Daiso Pilsner glass. Can from Antenna America, 4.5% It poured a great clear gold with a nice inch of foam which left behind lacing and a filmy layer of foam. Sweet malty grassy aroma with a touch of floral hops. The taste is sweet, fruity like a wine then cracker with a hint of graham before finishing with hay and a crisp lightly bitter finish. Pretty good subtle lager.

Halmgul och möjligen svagt grumlig. Har en annan variant av kokta grönsaker än våra europeiska lager. Även toner av trevliga humlesorter med lite tropiska inslag, men det hjälper föga. Tveksamt bra lager.

Wonderfully smooth and lightly sweet. Supremely drinkable and with only a hint of bitterness. A nice oily texture. A good weight. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can pours with a hazy gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up grainy malts, some floral hops and then other various grainy notes and breadiness mixed with a lagery yeasty sense. The taste begins with a nice grainy maltiness and then flows into some malt sweetness and faint pear flavored cotton candy mixed with floral hop flavor and almost no hop bitterness. To midway a pleasing bready to grain note moves forward and sends back some of the sweetness to create some balance. It ends with a nice lingering bready sort of graininess and then mild floral hops. I like.

Bottle. Pale slightly hazy yellow pour with a small pure white head. Grainy nose with just the tiniest hint of skunk. Crisp clean palate with a lemony grain taste, some grassy hops. Good tasting brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with part of the stamp rubbed of. I see the numbers 25 and 3784. The pour is a slightly hazy pale yellow and a fast acting white fizzy head. The aroma is Euro-malts, light toffee, slight citrus, and herbal quality. The body is light, creamy but certainly not watery. The taste has Germany all over it with the sweet biscuit malt character, herbs, and a balanced clean finish. It is a well put together lager.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Clear yellow in color with a short-lived 1 inch white head of foam. Somewhat decent malt aroma, good mouthfeel, loses me on taste- malt profile greatly resembles Coors Banquet, just turned up a couple of notches, certainly not what you would expect for a beer labeled as a Helles.
