Excellent beer in all itís simplicity. I donít think Iíve had something as crisp or clean as this yet. Not a lot in the aroma and taste...grain/grass...but itís wickedly drinkable.

DuffMan (9472) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Bright yellow, thick white head that retains until the bottom of the glass and leaves early lace. Aroma has some delicate florals amongst grain. The delicate florals offer a nice light perfumey touch to a light and very clean palate. This is an excellent lager.

Small bottle. Gold, white head. Nose is floral/lemon spice, Flavour is same but malts are on the sweeter side. What attracts me to this style is the delicate flavours, this doesnít really have that but itís alright.

Not sure why ever Bavarian Lager Iíve seen has a bunch of people saying it is flavorless. These beers are supposed to be light and refreshing - if you want something dark and robust go drink a stout! That being said, this is light and refreshing tasting of wheat, straw, and lemon. A great craft beer.

Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2013
Very light lemon aromas and pours a light straw colour. A complete lack of taste and not much to mention of for the palate. Hard to call this a larger.

bulldogops (1986) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle 5%. Bold golden pour with a thick, white foam, decent retention. Aroma is strong malty sweetness, caramel, ripe fleshy fruits. Taste is lightly hopped, rather dry but quite impressive. Crisp, refreshing, and smooth tasting.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Beer looks like beer in bottle so Iíll say its a 5 like Mitch did. Sweet aroma with lots apple, might be lemon but not really, lots of cereal, maybe corn pops, and all with pennies. Nice carbonation, good thick flavor. Bready, corn, lemon, pennies. This style has never done it for me but this seems like a good example of it. Beer has a creaminess in the flavour and Iím digging it. Highly drinkable beer, not a style I normally drink but I could drink this again.

VertBaconStrips (2309) - Blerkablerka, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Pity pack. Bright yellow gold, lots of white bubbly that compresses slowly. Solid grain base, light grass, lemon, nice. Beginning to like this style more and more. I didnít give the aroma much text love but I dig it. Tasty and thirst quenching. Smooth and light with solid grain malt, tasty fruit with a sneaky bitter cameo, yum. Light carbs, sneaky bitter touch on the finish. Easy drinking goodness.

355ml brown bottle. Gold pour, some fine haze. Fast fading white cap, just a thin layer on the surface. Grain in the nose, some grass. Taste has grains and leafy hops. Slight grassy aftertaste, low bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, lightish body. Overall, drinkable, dryish and basic German influenced brew.

reebtogi (5590) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with cereal grains and grass. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. A little better than the macro lagers but still nothing special.
