Good beer, seems very much like a dortmunder style, not too sweet, not too bitter on the hops. Good beer overall, better than many standard German Pils.

superspak (3500) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2015
330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/23/2014. Pours crystal clear golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice pale lager style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

hfmejias (1061) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 29, 2015
11.2 Fl. Oz. Poured yellow, clear, fizzy and with a nice big and foamy white head that left lots of lacing. Aroma of grain and yeast. Taste is bready and sweet, some malts and even some hints of hops. Refreshing, drinkable, does what it is supposed to do...

Rhombic (30) - SPAIN - AUG 23, 2015
Draught, somewhere in the Pays de la Loire. Rather better than your standard Eurolager. Taste is only slightly sweetish, with a good combination of malt/hop balance and bitterness. Thin body and watery on palate, though.

Steve_0 (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle at home, picked up at warehouse liquors. Clear golden pour with a big white head and ok lacing. Skunky, grassy, herbal hoppy, biscuity, and green apples in the aroma. Taste is husky, crackery, some skunk, light pear, grass, and straw with a crisp finish - a lot of malt presence. Medium body high cabroantion. Not a bad pale lager.

czlowiekwiadro (425) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2015
zapach miły, słodowy, lekko kwiatowy, ogólnie dość lekki. lekkie zioła i odrobina mokrej ścierki. kolor złoty, klarowny, piana biała, średnio obfita, dość szybko znika. dosyć wytrawne, lekko wodniste, lekko słodowe. trochę kurzu i ogonków z jabłek. wyraźna goryczka, czysta, ziołowa, dość przyjemna, krótka. nasycenie niskie do średniego. orzeźwiające i lekkie.
