3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden with a frothy head that subsides into a decent half-inch of sustined head over a bubbly clear beer. A basic german lager is not my favorite style, but for what it is, this is pretty well done. Aromas of sweetish malt, barely noticeable hops and a familiar lager yeasty character. The flavor is smooth, clean and crisp, but with a slightly bitter-hop aftertaste. Not a stunning beer, but does what it does pretty well. Recommended if you want a light, clean unchallenging beer.

On tap at Mes Que in Buffalo, NY. I believe it was the original. Golden yellow pour, clear. Easy drinking, straw malty-ness. Just your standard clean crisp German beer. I’ve had better but this is alright.

Keg@wirral beer festival, port sunlight. Golden beer highly carbonated with small head. Aroma of pale malts and bread. Taste is bready, pale malts and a mild hop bittering. Ok beer, but too carbonated for me.

Clear golden color, big white head that quickly disappeared. Some lacing. Medium body, average carbonation. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Aroma of hay, malt and apple. Slightly dry. Not a fan of the style, but this one is OK.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 500ml bottle from Piligrim in Moscow. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy and grassy. Light hop taste with medium bitterness. So good after so many Eastern European pale lagers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) I like this beer a lot. It’s on the bitter and hoppy side for its style, and has a strong bready malt aroma relative to its light body and color. I also can’t notice the alcohol in the aroma, which is a plus for me. Very refreshing. I notice this beer foams excessively if the bottle isn’t cold when it is opened. Interestingly, it doesn’t pour with much head though. The only thing I dislike about this beer is a faint sourness and a slightly metallic quality in the finish, but I find this metallic quality is typical of German beers, and this one is by no means the worst offender.
