sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2007
12 oz bottle easily just overfills a 16 oz tumbler with about 4.5 oz of head; pale golden. Aroma bready with slight green bottle skunk. Flavor also bready malts; lightly metallic; surprisingly noticeable dry hop finish; hint of cardboard; lingering hop finish. Thin body. Reasonable for the style, but a poor beer overall.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 18, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 Bottled. A pale blonde beer, with an average head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of bread and cereals. Also the flavour is very malty with only a light hop presence in the finish. Medium body and not much aftertaste. A refreshing and easy drinking lager.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours a clear pale yellow. Aroma of pennies, and some light grain. Taste is thankfully less metallic and pretty easy going. Finishes with a nice bitterness. Nothing all that great, but my experience with it was okay.

jhanauer (6) - USA - JAN 16, 2007 does not count
Bottle: poured into pint glass and the head was nearly overwhelming the cup. Once the head settled a bit and I could get to the beer, it was not as I expected. A bit watery to be honest and not much else. It finished well, but could have used a bit more punch.

benpickens (483) - Camarillo, California, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Gold with a frothy and long lasting head. Honey, apples and hay aromas. Slick and crisp and off dry with a mout coating hops finish. Good example of a german lager.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Refreshing, but nothing else. I took a couple of sips of this beer and was very disappointed. I found it not much better than large production lagers.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Bottle: Relativly dark, rich, golden color for style. Lots of white head. Hops (pine) and malts (sweet bread) present in aroma. Caramel malts hit at first in the mouth, then some honey and creamyness follow. Mild amount of hops finish it off. One can note the slight alcohol along with the sweet breadyness in the lingering finish. A medium bodied beer, with dencent malty notes, but still rather "eh."

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 Malty nose, easy drinking yet has a bitter bite. Found some metallic tones also. Quite close to a pils even tho it’s a munchner, or a dortmunder? (Original 2.6 - 4/3/6/3/10) Re-rate: In four years I’ve come to appreciate different qualities in beer and this one is exceptionally good. It’s well made, very well made, balanced, nuanced and tasty, thus upgraded the score.

Slightly malty, and slight hop bite. Dry palate, not a very good finish. Very light in flavor and mouthfeel, but I think thats what they were going for. This would be better on the boat docks. Quenching. A decent brew.
