Light, crisp and slightly fruity. Grain and malt. I’ve had this twice and both times it had a metallic tinge that ruined the beer.

Draft, Steins Lemon grass, dusty white paper. Mildly honey sweetness. Over carbonated 3 Plato water wort, all pils malt, with 1 lemon drop candy dropped in, let sit for 2 weeks, re-carbonate, and here it is. A little zest, perhaps torrified wheat.

smmaaren (306) - NORWAY - JUN 24, 2015
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours light golden with almost no head. A bit dead with no carbonation. Aromas of malt, grass and some hops. Alright beer. Nothing more...

bytemesis (4460) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Tap. Pours crystal clear pale golden, medium white head, dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is a bit of corn, grass, biscuit. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, hint of metal, citrus. Lightish body. Not my favorite.

UXO (757) - CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours clear pale straw with a short, short-lived white head, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is pale malt, grassy, slight vinous. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp finish. (3/5) Light, crisp and pleasant - shares a lot of characteristics with pilseners or hells lagers. Not exactly complex or challenging, but clean and refreshing. (12/20)

Marheb (3027) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2015
(En fût au BRU-HAUS): Profondeur des céréales évidente dès la première brise. L’enrobage floral et le miel résiduel en font un liquide absolument impeccable qui me fait penser plus à une Helles qu’à une Kolsch.
