JDBaker11058 (1426) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Appearance: slightly hazy light gold, with one finger of bright white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: a bit of grass, with some honey smacks cereal, biscuit, and creamed corn. Taste: very fresh-tasting, with semi-dried grass providing a nice balance to sweetish cereal grains. Finish: clean, crisp, and extremely refreshing, but not long lasting. Notes: This was an outstanding classic Dortmunder/Helles lager. Perfectly balanced, very fresh and lively in the palate, and refreshing. Couldn’t ask for more.

Russo (1728) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
Hazy golden color with a nice white head that leaves small lacing. Aroma is light fruity and malty. Flavor is like aroma but with more sweetness and some bitterness. Light body with medium carbonation and a refreshing finish.

Poured from 1pint 9 oz bottle at Oktoberfest in Mount Angel, Oregon. A very good beer- traditional wheat marzen.

"Neuschwansteiner Das Echte - Hirschbräu" it says on the label on the "Bügelverschlussflasche" : swing-top/beugel-bottle 0,5L. Bought at K-market Kilpisjärvi Finland, and also Eurospar Langnes Tromsø, and sometimes Ica Supermarket Isrenna Tromsø. Pours a creamy foam on top of the straw yellow body. Grassy scents from hops on the meadow, and some citric hints as well. Superb taste and mouthfeel; a citric fresh and rich hoppy flavour, some hints from chocolates, raisins, firtree sticks, bisquits, dutch hard candies, butter. Aftertaste is not that rich. Overall this is a good beer. Sehr gutes Bier, vielen Dank!

Marduk (3330) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 24, 2013
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 (2862) - 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.

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.
