Tap. Clear golden color. Medium size white head, stays. Looks absolutely fabulous. Malty and grainy aroma. Not much of aroma. Malty, mild hops, grassy, slightly fruity notes in flavor. Nice grassy aftertaste. Another one please!

RexTalionis (3507) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Flip-top bottle 50 cl. Pours pale golden in color with a whitish head. Some bready notes, bit of sweet lemon and notes of hay in aroma. Taste is a bit on the sweeter side with light malty notes and hints of green grassy notes sticking out. A bit light, but still quite nice tasting with a light biscuit and bitter feeling in the end.

kidmartinek (4676) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Just a poor quality excuse for a beer. Pale yellow, no memorable head, no aroma, and a mild wheat taste with some yeast and bitterness. The blandnezz of this beer and the dryness of its bite will remind you just how poor Germany’s beermaking has become.

50 cl bottle as a christmas present. Golden beer, white small head. Sweet aroma has butter and grassy hops. Reminds of some n/a beers. A bit sweet taste has malts, grain and hay. Some citrus in there too. Very soft and smooth brew.
