fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2006
I ordred a liter of this stuff at the Hofbrau Haus in Munich. Looked like stereotypical beer. Large head, with grain/malt flavor. Golden color. As others have mentioned, the beer was pretty refreshing.

Stew41 (1728) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2006
Fizzy head disappears at light speed after pouring. Ultra clear light amber…doesn’t really excite. Industrial nose with a cheap sweet feel – adjuncts perhaps. Flavours are very shallow on the palate and the fizz swamps whatever flavours exist. Some bitterness on the finish but I only mentin this given the blandness of the palate. Very disappointing, almost in the Empire Larger stakes!!

Pours a medium straw color with a medium head that dissapates to about a finger in a minute, leaving some great lacing. Just enough bubbles rising from the bottom to look very appealing. Head has vanished in 3-5 minutes. Smell is very malty with hints of grain and a slight sour fruit smell. Taste is mostly of malt, though is nicely balance by the slight hop bitterness and a clove taste in the finish. Very refreshing, it has almost a pilsner quality about it.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Clear gold, no head.
Alarmingly sweet, vaguely fruity aroma.
Flavor like a standard pale lager, but reeeallly sweet. Slightly malty and grainy, but mostly just sweet. Aftertaste is short and... you guessed it, sweet!
Very surprising, and not really in a good way either. It has an original flavor, but after half a pint the sweetness just becomes too much for me.

mabjork (667) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottled. Pale golden in colour, almost no head. The aroma is malty with hints of grain. It doesn’t taste all thhat much and it was a big disappointment to me since I hade had Kristallweisse and Schwarz weisse prior to this one.I Won’t drink it again.

Lowe1983 (1343) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Pours golden in color with a thin white head. Aroma is of malts and hints of grains. Flavor is also of grains but there really isn’t much to it. No bitterness and not much of a finish. A very bland beer

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Typical German style pils. Aroma is distinctly musty, flavor is dominated by grains. Fairly light bodied. Nice golden appearance with a nice head. This beer is a good accompaniment to Schnitzel or such, that’s what it is made for.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Very similar in quality to Pilsener Urquell. Golden yellow pour with a small head. Fresh, nearly fruity aroma that is hard to catch. Good amount of taste on the nose which quickly dies away into a dry watery feel. Not too much here, the mouthfeel is similar to carbonated water as this beer is very thin.
