This golden-colored beer exports attracted by its fresh, hoppy aroma. The use of selected malts and hops from the Hallertau Ettaler Edelhell gives his special touch.

Bottle. Clear, pale golden color with small white head with minimun lace. Very fresh, smooth and sweety malty aroma is also buttery and slightly grassy. Flavor is sweety malty, grassy and a bit buttery with mild hops. Palate is very smooth and light- to medium-bodied.

#207 Gelungene Optik im Glas mit mittlerer Kohlensäure. Der Antrunk ist erfrischend trotz der immerhin 5,2% Alk. Überhaupt kommt es eher mild daher, aber das kann im nächsten Moment auch umschlagen. Ein Wechselspiel aus mildem Malz und feinherber Hopfigkeit. Mild, ohne zu süß zu sein. Wohldosierte Hopfenbeigabe. Ein außergewöhnlich gutes bayerisches Hell, dass auf Understatement macht. Mit jedem Schluck kommen weitere Geschmacksnuancen hervor! Schließe mich Suffkopp mit seinem Fazit an, denn es trifft genau zu: "leichtes und doch so komplexes Bier" :-)) Das Motiv des Etiketts, die Ettaler Klosterbrauerei, ist ja ok, aber die silbergraue Farbe ähnelt an ein dt. Billigbier aus Gotha. Das ist aber auch der einzige Kritikpunkt. Test vom 18.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,12,10,12 - 11,90

Delicate and tasty. Pale with a soapy head. German hops in the nose, a bit of a light pils feel all the way around. Grassy, clean, some body. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a very clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is just a tad sweet with a typical lager smell. Feels creamy, which I found surprising. Tastes like a lager. Meh.

50cl Bottle via trade, thanks Bierkoning! ABV 5.0%. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is malty sweet, bread, cake, light spicy grassy hops. Flavour is nice smooth and malty, soft bitter grassy finish. Simple and straightforward, but really nice and smooth. Light-bodied, soft oily mouthfeel.

Fin (9457) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
Purchased this at a Orterer Getrenmarkt in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany 30.05.12 consumed at friends Lyn & Barrys when invited to watch Ukraine v England match 19.06.12 Pours shining gold with a white head. Bit sweet initially I like the maltiness, soft in the mouth. Not sure of the abv but there is thickness and warmth that suggests that this is stronger than it probably is. Like this.

It’s warm golden with a huge, creamy, white head. The aroma has mild notes of malt, bread and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, grain, bread, flower and a little citrus with a straw feel. The finish is slightly dry. Harmonic.
