Excellent beer and pehaps my favorite "big" brewery in Gemany. This and the dunkel are great high quality lagers. This is a very acidic and hoppy pale lager. Not a dortmunder like this page claims. Very Good.

This beer had an yellow coppery colour with a light head. The aroma was quite strong, with some crisp hops, citrus fruit and malt. The taste was crisp with moderate hops and some orange grainy malt sweetness. It had a short bitter finish. This was a fairly simple style but showed clean, crisp, fresh flavours.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear golden, medium fluffy head. Grainy, hayish malt aroma with some herbal hops. Medium to light in body, with prickly CO2. Well balanced with a good bitterness in the finish.

Pours golden in color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty with hints of grain. The taste is just like a pilsener. Very easy to put down.

I enjoyed this beer. Aside from the slightly sour aroma it’s a very refreshing brew. Flavor is well balanced and slightly favors sweetness. It won’t wow you with its complexity, but this beer is a solid choice, especially during these summer months.

Bottle. Slightly skunky smell. Thin head and slight carbonation typical of the style. A slightly sweet malt flavor. Would make a pretty good session beer.

bottle. clear golden color. Nothing too exciting about this one. I can taste some corn, little sweetness at the end. Not terible though

Bottle 500ml. Very nice beer, looks like a golden color and a little head. The aroma is good and flavor is dry, but nice palate. I prefer drink at Hofbrauhaus in München! :)
Cerveja muito boa, com uma cor dourada e uma camada certa de espuma. Com um aroma bom e um sabor seco e amargo, mas deixa um gosto bom após uma boa golada. Eu ainda prefiro beber no canecão na própria HofBrauHaus em Munique. :)
