brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: The pour is a crystal clear golden color with a fluffy white head on top. S: A crisp lager nose with notes of sweet malt and spicy and earthy hops. Not terribly complex, but nice. T: A really nice clean lager with some pleasant sweetness with perhaps a touch of fruity tartness (apples and lemons?). The hops are floral with just a mild bitterness. M: Fairly light on the tongue as you might expect from a lager, but not watery at all. D: Not usually my favorite style, but this one is really nicely done. Good clean flavors and a really refreshing beer.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - NOV 21, 2009
The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass is zippy, small head. Starts hoppy, not too dry, modest spicy. Finish a little bit sourish, that makes the beer interesting. Good!
