UPDATED: MAY 23, 2015 Bottle from Systembolaget, shared by Mats. Pours light golden with a big head that quickly dissolves. Citrus and sweet malt in the aroma. Taste is mainly sweet malt, a little bit of bitter hops and some metallic notes. Refreshing, but not much more. Update 2015-05-23. Bottle forgotten by Liket. Thanks pal! Much better this time around. Light malty, grassy and fresh aroma. Taste is light malty sweet with a light hop bitterness. Herbal/grassy after taste.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smak is licht bitter hoppig en fris, meer pils dan helles.

jamaty (1144) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Rubia pálida pajiza. Espuma muy blanca y cremosa, aunque no dura demasiado. Aroma malteado agradable. En la boca buen cuerpo y buen equilibrio. Amargor que queda en el fondo, recordando a una pilsen. En general una buena cerveza de una de las tradicionales brauereis muniquesas.

Milter (317) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2015
Dejlig øl til dejlig tysk mad. Flot gylden farve. Savner dog en lidt kraftigere smagsnuace.

Ovviamente è un classico, ha un bel colore dorato, non ha sapori predonimanti. Gradevole al palato.

On tap at a German festival. Aroma is light wet and slightly floral. Flavor is crisp, rich for a lager, and clean tasting. Sudsy mouthfeel. Good quality traditional lager.
