Skinnyviking (8858) - Copenhagen, - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. High and lasting white fluffy head leaving nice long curtains. Clear yellow golden body. Sweet weak barley malt aroma and flavor. Little hops bitterness, low carbonation, short sweet finish. OK but just one of many, soon to be forgotten.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
It has beautiful lasting foam and a gentle malty aroma. Lovely rich malt flavor where a little sweetness will have ample space and thus gives lager a greater experience than found in a usual average lager. Hop bitterness leaves little slow in coming, and it is positive that we therefore have time to enjoy its fresh malt has hint of a little fresh newly harvested grain. The hops are slightly markedly towards the end and put a fine edge on the whole. Obviously, an all-malt lager which only Germans brew with great precision. Carbonation is soft and it makes it easy to drink, thirst-quenching and very delicate.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, 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.

djoeye (3800) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
"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!
