superspak (3747) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of light lemon, wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy 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 zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Golden very slightly hazy beer with very little foam. Smells like wet malt grains. Tastes like wet grains along with a malty sweet character and a solid carbonation. Normal aftertaste. For a bottom-fermented beer, this one is quite good and has a good price-performance ratio.

BigBeer45 (1355) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015
It smelled and tasted like beer, so, I gave it a go, this beer had a light to medium golden pour with some haze, this beer is not filtered and made a one to two finger white cover that receded to a ring and an island that covered most of the top, the nose had a bit of skunk when first opened, probably from the trip to America, it was shipped here in a light brown bottle, just a touch of the skunk was noticed afterwards but nothing that took away from the nose or flavor of the drink, it had aromas of light malt and bread, and a touch of cracker, light floral and grass hops with light citrus and bread sweetness, some small earth notes in the background, the flavors were bread malt with some hop bitterness, a touch of citrus and a light bread like sweetness, the finish had a light bitterness with malt following, the mouth feel was light and a touch watery, it was a little creamy and had average carbonation, a simple beer with a light malt nose and flavor.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Hazy greyed golden. Faltering ringed head after a decent swirl. Oaky lemon and oats nose. Peppery lemon initial taste. Fades quickly. Creamy malt, dry oats. Finish is lean bitter, more lemon and chalk and linger is a faltering bubbly bitterness.
