Clear golden pour with a nice frothy/creamy head and thick bands of sticky lacing ... Aroma of sweet caramel malts and light grassy citrusy hops.... Taste of sweet caramel malts, light grassy hops and a light citrusy hop flavor .... Well balanced with a soft mouthfeel ... Finish is sweet with a very light bitter hop bite ... Very awesome and drinkable brew

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk. It?s either this beer or another light lager. Let?s assume this is right. At the very least, whatever beer it is, it?s a light lager. Pours light yellow, white head. Flavor is light crisp malt, lemon, mild hops. Flavor is similar. It?s fine. I can?t really say much beyond that.

O,5l Flasche. Laut Eticket ein "Helles". Frischer hopfiger und blumig er Duft. Sehr helle gelbe, fast wässrige Farbe, wenig Schaum. Vollmundig er, leicht süßer Geschmack mit klassischer Exportbier-Note. So gut wie keine Bitternoten. Für mich eine schöne süffige Halbe.

MarkoNm (2255) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a clear pale golden color, topped with a sizeable white foamy head. Malty aroma, grains and bready notes, as well as slight grassy feel. Starts sweet, grainy and bready, grassy body with some nice bitterness to balance the sweetness. Drinkable and refreshing.

Kita (1837) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 On tap, 0.20l, somewhere around Belluno. Clear pale golden color with thick white head, nice lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, light toasted malts and herbs. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, following is clean grassy, herbal and mild fruity, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Very decent helles, good enough to kill the thirst after cycling in Italian Dolomites...

massingasetta (627) - München, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
Hopfiger Einstieg was den Geruch reflektiert. Schaum blieb beim Testbier nur sehr kurz. Recht guter Geschmack und Gesamteindruck - relativ süffig und sehr einheitlich. Ich denke wenige werden dieses Bier nicht gut finden. Fazit: Gutes all-roud Bier - ist zwar ein Helles aber rundum fast wie ein leicht herbes pils.

(Flasche) Es hat eine sonnengelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr getreidig, grüner Hopfen, etwas Puderzucker und eine leichte Süße im Hintergrund. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, getreidig, etwas wie der Beigeschmack von Süßstoff sonst prickelnd und erfrischend.
