wacohoover (100) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Note: Best if consumed in a large hall, with a polka band playing, while eating a huge preztel. I’ve had this from a bottle and while at the Hofbrau House, and of course it’s better over there. In fact, if I was to rate this froma bottle only, I wouldn’t rate it very high really. But, from a tap in a huge serving vessel, it is very good. A little soapy tasting, but smooth and lively. Hints of honey, malts and bannana.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2008
12 oz bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville. Pours a light gold color with a smal head. Aroma is the typical German grainy scent. Taste is spicy with a bit of wheat to it. Better drinker than it looked.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Pours a golden color with a white head. Smells like a typical german beer. Clove, banana-like, and has a little bite for the finish.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2008
(Draught@Rymy-Eetu) Clear golden with a small but lasting head. Grainy-malty, slightly sweet and grassy, acidic aroma. Honey-malty, sweetish flavor with mild, grassy hoppiness and some butter. Dry finish. Light to medium body with slightly fizzy and acidic palate. A basic, somewhat acidic German lager.

ghawener (1555) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle: Delicious, nicely balanced hops and malt, grassy and hoppy; definitely high up in its style. A great every day beer!

illidurit (2279) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Poured into my Eichhof bier mug. Pale gold liquid rises perfectly to the .5L line, leaving a good 2 fingers of white foam to crest at the glass’s rim. Retention is pretty good, not much lacing. Aroma is mostly grainy with a touch of leafy hops. Light and sweet. Taste is pretty classic helles lager, with a very clean, grainy malt profile and a subdued hoppiness. Husk and bread, with a hint of a metallic note. Well carbonated, with a very smooth mouthfeel and a dry finish. Crisp and clean. Really drinkable.
