Hefiger, leicht hopfensüßlicher Geruch. Leicht bitterer Antrunk, süßlicher werdend gleitet das Bier in eine hefige Mitte. Etwas energischer abbitternd im Ende. Recht schmackhaft.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught; Trabelsdorf-brewed, 3 months old Clear copper-gold colour with a huge, very dense & fine head, leaving beautiful lace. Fresh & toasted & oxydized maltsmix - special, but MALTY! Honey, sweet malts, unreal cookies. Oxydized honey, but good! Finish is slighlty dry-bitterish, as from old, but non-cheesy hops. Slick, as from the grist, creamy MF, velvety texture. GENIUS lager. Even the oxydation tastes good.

Since I am a very German Pils lover, I can’t say nothing bad about this beer. The taste is not to much bitter, very thirst quenching and if served at the right temperature is something very delicious.
I think this beer should be present wherever you go, as regard places selling handcraft beers because of its simplicity and easy to drink. The body, is all in all light, when the carbonation is rather soft. I appreciate it very much.

Hoppy, bitter, enough malts to balance. Easy drinking. Won’t go out of my way to search it out, but if it crosses my path again by chance, I won’t hesitate to try again.

Nose of bitter hops, watered down some, feel is broad, carb is heavy, taste is middle-of-the-road

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught at Festival der Bierkulturen, Köln) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a short foamy white head. Quite yeaste, pale malty and slightly worty aroma with subtle fruity notes and herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a lively, almost sharp carbonation. Pale malt-character, grainy and worty taste with herbal accents; dry and bitter hoppy, also a bit slim finish with a rounded malty sweetness. Lacks maturation, otherwise okay. 16.V.10

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at the Sandkerwa festival, Bamberg. Cloudy dark gold, super-fine head. Aroma of grassy, earthy hops, and a touch of honey. Very hoppy--grass and citrus. Clean and dry but with rich, bready malts. Super smooth, almost flat. Huge peppery hop finish. Rich and soft malt. Wonderful! Lots of cereals, some honey. Best of the fest.

Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 1. As Naturtrub Zeiglbier. Creamy pale malt - with that nice German nutty quality. Tiny bit of herb and a nice mild citrus hop. Semi dry finish. Decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught GBBF 2010. A slightly hazy golden beer with a big white head and lacing. A buttery aroma with noble hops. Hops and creamy malts in the mouth. Too chewy by half and nowhere near crisp and hoppy enough.
