pinkie (425) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours golden with a brilliance and perfect clarity. Fat head of off white foam that fell well to a ring and some clusters of foam on top. This beer is shining. Nose is pristine. Light sweet grain, doughy malt., a touch of floral and some fresh cut grass and wet hay. Crisp and light on the palate with just enough bubbles to tickle the tongue. Wet grassy flavor in the middle and drinks so easily and refreshing. The noble hops are so light they engage the palate effortlessly as the lightly sweet grain kisses the drink as a faint little bitter leaves you wanting more. Truly motivating. Simply outstanding. You could drink a few of these.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw with a resilient white head. Aroma is grains and herbal hops. Flavor is grains, cereals, yellow prune and hints of other fruits. Finish is herbal hoppy finish. Light body, average to strong carbonation. Alright.

GIJOE (471) - Monterey, California, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours yellow with a foamy white head. Thin lacing. Nose is pleasantly light hop. Taste is lightly bitter. Thin and watery, but not bad. Actually, one of the best lagers I've had and I don't much care for lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Senap (275) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2014
En klassisk lager av tysk modell enligt standard 1a. Primärt för att dricka i stora volymer, till korv, kött och surkål. Till detta funkar den utmärkt, i övrigt lite trist, men varken bättre eller sämre annat i klassen.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
500 ml. bottle. It pours a nice light golden yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is lightly skunked floral hops with a good bready malt base. Well balanced. The flavor is smooth and very floral with strong bready malts and touches of apple juice and dough. Tastes a bit stronger than it is. Pretty good balance maybe leaning more toward the malty side. Decent light lager.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013
Draught at Bavarian Bier Café, Broadbeach on 29/11/13. Poured a clear golden amber colour with a one- to two-finger foamy head that diminished quickly and produced good lacing. No carbonation, not a bubble seen. Aroma very subtly of sweet malt but in reality not much to smell. Taste initially a quite sweet light malt character followed by an earthy hops bitterness. Light body. Soft with a long (but not nice) bitter finish.
