COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest beer . A great organic beer. With an exceptionally crisp palate, this ale balances the light malt palate with a subtle bitterness. This ale is an ideal beer for those unaccustomed to micro-brewed beers. Made with pale, wheat, carastan and carapils malts. Hopped with Cascade, Saaz and Tettnang hops. Made with pride and great taste from the worlds first certified organic brewery.

arbine (8) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2015 does not count
Berry unintrusive but fresh aroma, a nice golden color but not enough froth in my opinion. The freshness continues in the taste: very light, with a late but pleasant and soft bitterness. Aftertaste stays slightly bitter but okay for a blonde. I like that. Good beer.

Bottle sampled at home from old notes. Pours a clear light golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had pale bready malts, grains, straw, light herbal notes, not too much going on with this, simply a tick.
