walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle. Bright gold with white head. Tangy malt nose with some faint grassy hops in the background, along with some lemony notes. Clean, smooth, slightly-sweet malt palate, with a bit of a sour aftertaste, all without being watery. Tasty, and real drinkable.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2006
Bottled. Pale golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts and hops with some hay and vegetables in it. Flavour is pleasant malts and hops with hints of dry sour fruits. Refreshing!

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2006
[Bottled]. Clear golden color, small white head. Grainy malty aroma, a bit papery. Malty, clean and balanced, but quite uninspiring (although solid) dortmund/helles. Some grassy notes in the finish.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
12 oz bottle. Golden beer with a thick white head. Very fresh malty character (surprising given the source and the green bottle). Very bready with some soft toastiness. Flavour is sweetly malty but has a beautiful floral hop flavour on the back. Toast and flowers linger for a long time throughout. Very clean tasting, light minty quality. Really surprisingly good.

A light hoppish aroma greets the nose. The pour is golden with a white head. Light hoppish flavor greets the palate and finishes with a dry bitterness.

sanmiguel (118) - Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottled. Pours a golden body with a good head. Has a crisp, light fruity flavor, possibly citrus. Clean, bitter, astringent finish. A pretty good beer!

chicagobears (414) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
One of my all time favorite lagers. Aroma of Bavarian hops. Great balance, clean, refreshing taste. Good hop presence. Sweet sticky caramel malt aftertaste. The drinkability is second to none. Best served by the litre at the Hofbrauhaus with a Bavarian dish. You will be singing and clanking your mug in no time.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2006
(Tap) Golden color with lasting white head. The beer was sweeter than I expected, but was somewhat balanced by malts in the aftertaste. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Nice white head. Definitly hints of sweet malts. Distinct flaavor of a slight German dry hoppiness.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and mild hops. Flavor is malty, sweet , slight citrus, and a hoppy bitter dry ending (mild). Good body, decent brew.
