Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, more and more spicy, fine hoppy background. Finish well balanced, very drinkable, spicy aftertaste. Nice!

Klassisches Zwickel mit einer netten grasigen Note und etwas Getreide. Recht süffig mit schönen Hintergrund von Trockenheit. Angenehm.

McTapps (4739) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy golden colour with steady airy head and medium body. Aroma of hay, hops and straw. Taste of straw, hops, grains, bread, flowers and mild fruits. Refreshing and easy to drink. Solid and good beer.

Bad luck with this one: golden color, white head. Aroma was butter, butter and sherry. Taste was the same. Hope I get the chance to rerate.

(bottle) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of floral hops, straw, light cinnamon, grainy pale malts, marzipan, lavender and a hint of paint thinner. flavour is mostly grainy pale malts and herbal hops, with a hint of butter, some bread crusts and a bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2013
It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, grain, fruit and light bread. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, fruit, straw, grain, light hay, and the finish is fairly dry and slightly bitter.

Draft at the brewery. Head is mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain / cracker), moderately hoppy (herbs). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Seemed kind of rough in the finish to me, but a fairly bright flowery aroma made it pleasant to sniff. Much better than their Lagerbier, which was loaded with diacetyl on this visit (did not rate).

3fourths (8290) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 draft at Hennemann in Sambach. hazy rich yellow with a soft white head. vibrant lemon juice and wildflower / lavender perfume nose with a strong juicy German hop character and softer touches of mint and cut field grass. the rind and pith character becomes stronger as the lemon juice seems to subside when it breathes out a bit. very expressive. medium body with filling, creamy, frothy carbonation, fluffing the soft malt before the zingy, tangy, lemon and dandelion hop acids wash the mouth clean. quenching acidity, very minerallic and sulfuric, and quite bitter for a German pils. dry body with only minor yeast noticed in the finish. honey dew and lemon oil and white pepper flavors linger in an oily coating of the mouth. lovely stuff all around. another of these well-hopped German pilsners where the intended audience seems to be non-Germans. let’s hope this trend continues.

Bügelverschlußflasche: Hazy, deep golden, mid-sized fluffy head, sticking to the glass, aromatic hayish-hoppy nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and soft; slightly lingering bitter-sweet and hoppy finish with a delicate rural touch. Great franconian brew...
