auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 22, 2013
On tap at the Iron Abbey - Horsham, PA. Budding, floral aroma that reminds me of late maple syrup and honeysuckle. Quite lavender. First smooth, subtly and a bit crystalline and then the floral-ness picks up intensity again, almost reaching slight soapiness, but not quite. Also, above average for tap serving conditions at this venue, but still a little aged and languid. Would revisit.

Travlr (11900) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Draft. Clear amber color, fluffy whitebhead. Aroma of fruit and flowers. Taste is malty but balanced. Not bad.

jbeatty (1026) - New York, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Review from backlog, sometime August 2012, draft. Pours burnished golden orange, fluffy white head. Aroma is orange, moderately sweet, peach and light hoppiness, light pale malts. Taste is straw, grassy hops with sweet fruitiness, light bitter finish. Light palate. Enjoyable, I dug the lightly fruity hop character here.

Proletariat, NY tap ($7): Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is lavender, perhaps other flowers, and some bread. Taste is floral hops, not really sweet. Nice and crisp and tasty. Interesting lager. I never had one that was as floral as this one.

Draft at The Birch. Golden body with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is floral hops, grains and sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, grains, floral hops, soft fruit notes, soft honey and bready notes. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grains, sweet malt, fruit notes, citrusy hops, floral hops and hints of honey.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 9, 2012
Sörmanufaktúra, Budapest. Kissé zavaros világító arany szín, közepes méretű, laza fehér hab. Illata leginkább virágosan-gyümölcsösen komlós, friss. Íze malátásan-mézesen édeskés, gyümölcsös és közepesen keserű. Közepesen testes, könnyen iható szűretlen világos sör, amely kellemesen komlós, frissítő jellegű.
