COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein starkes, helles, untergäriges Bier. Es ist weder süß noch wuchtig, sondern herb und frisch – wie das Allgäu im Frühjahr!

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, hay, malt, bread, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, alcohol, malt - almost chewy, and hay from the hops, leading to a bitter finish where the notes of alcohol and hay lingers. The alcohol tickles the palate.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a 3 finger white clingy head. Aroma of cooked caramel. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel with light noble hop. Except the flavors are quite strong. It’s a bit more sweet than dry. Maybe it’s just bready. Really good tasting beer.
