From the bottle poured a pale golden brew with a generous, fluffy white head. light aromas and flavors of buttery malt with a nice hop finish. Light bodied and delicious.

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Pour is ginger ale gold with a weirdly appropriate soda pop cap that comes rocketing out of nowhere and disappears just as quickly. Nose is wheat and...wheat. Taste is slightly sweet, boring malt with a slightly crisp finish. Tasty, but quite shallow and pedantic really, mmm, yes, quite...

Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head that left some lacing down the glass. The aroma is mostly malt and very faint hops. The taste is very similar.

SmashedSailor (5) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2014 does not count
A bit skunky with something to be desired, clear and crisp with a nice after-taste, however nothing to brag about

On tap at Mes Que in Buffalo, NY. I believe it was the original. Golden yellow pour, clear. Easy drinking, straw malty-ness. Just your standard clean crisp German beer. I’ve had better but this is alright.

Keg@wirral beer festival, port sunlight. Golden beer highly carbonated with small head. Aroma of pale malts and bread. Taste is bready, pale malts and a mild hop bittering. Ok beer, but too carbonated for me.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Clear yellow, white head. Nose is mostly deep grainy malt and some floral hops. Mild hoppy and sweet on the taste. Flavourful for a lager.
