At HofBrau Rosemont. At solid but not outstading pale lager. No off or adjuncty flavors. Less soft and sweet than the helles. Serving: Tap

"while i much prefer their dunkel, this is a decent lager nonetheless. doesn’t do anything to stand out, good or bad, but was a drinkable refreshing beer...didn’t hurt that it came in a liter stein!"

Bobzerunkel (1) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014 does not count
Medium bitterness. Light to medium taste. Long medium hoppy finish that lingers nicely on the tongue.

trapped (863) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 8, 2014
Drought. Pale yellow with small white foamy head, doughy aroma, high carbonation, sweetish taste, thin body, abrupt finish with hops aftertaste. Another not so remarkable lager.

shrubber85 (7862) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Draft (HB Chicago). Light pepper, hay, cream, and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Creamy barley malt and hay flavor. Very nice - very Helles-like.

BillKismet (3355) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2014
Ginger colored, nice carbonation. Crisp German hop nose, with easy, light golden grains. Body is crisp, more malty than hoppy, and characterized by pilsen grains and crisp German hop finish. Clean and enjoyable.

greenclansman (847) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - MAR 18, 2014
Besides the very clear and well balanced body, nothing else to mention here. Golden,clear,grainy,a bit iron-taste and a watery aftertaste.

cazort (548) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Very light, crisp, clear, controlled. Much more enjoyable than a typical American lager. A bit thin for my taste, but refreshing. Enjoyable.

graziano85 (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 2, 2014
Can. Golden colour with a small white head. Smell is malty, but sourish, taste is the same, almost no bitterness. There is much worse than this, but nothing special.
