For decades Berg Original has been our main beer brand. It has had many names before (Lager, Helles, Export). The yellow color in the label remained unchanged though and eventually turned gold. Therefore many friends of Berg beer call it "the yellow one". In the pub, the inn and on many festivities the "half liter" is Berg beer. It is the synonym for the fine, traditional way of brewing.

It’s yellow golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, grain and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes bread, malt, newly harvested grain, flower and light straw - it’s lovely and harmonic!

EithCubes (5458) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Draught zum Ochsen. Light yellow-golden with a fluffy bright white head. Surprisingly hoppy for style, both in the nose and mouth, very noble, though there are some rubbery/plastic tendencies. Light, smooth body. Probably a little above average for an Export.

bierkoning (12022) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2009
Tap @ former brewery Grüner Baum Biberach, closed in 2005. Cellar aroma with some flowery notes. Malty, slightly flowery flavor with some hops shining through in the aftertaste. Well balanced helles.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts dry and a bit moldy, the finish is weaker, a bit sourish. Not so good.

Bottle (thanx to Quack-Duck!): Clear, golden, distinctive "rural"-grany nose;mid-sized, slowly diminishing white head; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; becomes a bit more towards the grainy-malty finish. Good session beer......

(bottle) Clear, greenish golden colour with a fluffy but unstable foamy white head. Slightly sweet malty with rural pig sty notes and fresh herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Malt-accented, slightly grainy taste with a rural touch and a good herbal hoppy blend; dry and bitter-sweet, slightly hoppy finish. Clean and drinkable (27.02.08).
