Hochwertiger Spalter Aromahopfen gibt ihm seine Seele. Leuchtendes Goldgelb erfreut das Kennerauge und süßliche Malzaromen verwöhnen die Nase.

[bottle] Fresh noble hops aroma with just a little sweet malt and butterscotch and white grape notes. Clear darkish straw under a thin white patch. Sweet, crisp malt flavour that is a little soda watery and with just a little hops and cardboard. Some fruity notes as well. Nice crispness that is also from some gentle hops bitterness, but balance seems to be towards sweetness. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation and a sweet malt finish.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. But the foam disappears really fast. Starts spicy, the finish is much too sourish. Not a good christmasbeer!

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

On a getränkenhalle on the mühlenstr 4 in emlichheim -germany. Hell yellow-golden coulor, thin head, some hopbitter, and grain, like a full pilsener, good beer, but what about wintertraum?? würzig??

500ml fliptop bottle: poured light yellow with a medium sized snow white head. I’m trying to understand why this is a winter beer. In winter beers, I prefer something dark with some body. To me, this beer is like what a rebadging of Bud Light with a Winter Fest! sticker on it would be. The aroma is lightly of bread and hops. Flavor is the same. Mild hop bitterness with some yeasty, bready notes. Very fresh. Easy drinking and would be nice during the summer months. Not quite what I’m looking for in the winter.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle. Moderate sour, light yeasty, fresh bread. Average white foamy head, mostly diminishing, golden body. Light sweet start, light acetic finish, average duration. Light to medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Light metallic-astringent finish.

Indeed a rather good beer. Malt aromas. Tastes malty, herbal and fruity hops. As a session beer this is much better then any other lager or swill that is commonly available here in Holland, a pity that i had to get this in Germany.

Actually quite a good beer. So far all the german winterbeers have been very non-wintery for a scandinavian. I would think of this as a summer beer, because it’s more flowery and smooth, rather than dark and intense. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this beer, full taste despite the freshness.

Yellow, clear. Malty aroma. No bitterness, very smooth but quite boring. An okay beer, however not very winterlike...
