Frisch getreidiger und gleichzeitig säuerlicher Antrunk. Vollmundig cremig getreidig mit wenig Hopfen, süffig, gut karbonisiert. Zum Ende herber, mild, das Ganze wirkt ziemlich jung. Nett. 8/8/9/8/9/8

Pretty good, but the flavor and palate is almost there, just needs a little tweak. It is a nice amber-brown color, no lacing small white head. It tastes good until the swallow and then a slightly unnatural flavor unfolds on the palate. Overall, would be a much better beer, if they adjust the late flavor here and use less of a raw wheat burlap flavor recipe it would be great.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Bottle. Light diacetyl aroma, fruity yeast. Cloudy yellow, champagne bubbles, offwhite foam. Light fruity soap, a lot of butterscotch, good hop profile. Chewy mellow mouthfeel, sparkly on the tongue. Shame about the fault, I sense a good beer underneath, must try again.

50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Cloudy straw with ample fizzy white head and a good amount of sediment. Aroma is sweet malt and flowery hops. Flavor is citrus, honey, caramel. Full body, high carbonation. Short, modestly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From BA: Sept 2007. I bought two brown flip-top bottles (half-litres) on my visit in June 2007. I knew they would have a short life because of the set-up of the brewery, but I forgot to check and log the ’best before dates’ on my return to the UK. The bottles I am reviewing should have been drunk before 25th July 2007, I drank them today, 10th Sept 2007.
Poured into my Berliner Kindl half-litre sleeve glass.
I had this draught at the brewery, so knew it was going to be very cloudly. The colour is a dull orange with a good firm white head, not pure white, but whiter than biege.
The aroma is of yeast and light malts, hops too. Not a lot of power in any of the smells though.
The sharpness I remembered from the fresh draught beer had gone, but the sour refreshing taste was still evident, dry and bitter. This is a fine tasting beer.
The sourness stays in the mouth, as does the dry bitter taste. What a pity I am not drinking this on a warm summers day on the banks of the river Mosel, but in damp old England.
Obviously the freshness isn’t in the beer anymore, but it was still very drinkable and I will re-review this beer if I get the chance to do so with an indate bottle, or draught at the brewhouse.

Not the best of de Kloster Machern beers, that was the Dunkel. But this is a beer like al pils.

Thanks Bottleshop! Please standby for a real rating. I’m actually enjoying the company of other beer enthusiasts instead of being a non-social "I must rate this right now!!!"

Overall this is your standard generic german beer not great not bad just in the middle. Nothing over the top stands out to me. Drinkable but that is about all it has going. Mildly bitter, mild carbonation, slightly toasted malt and it all comes together to just make a medium of the road beer.
