4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mahr’s Brau Leicht has a thick, spongy, frothy, white head, and a somewhat hazy, straw-gold appearance, with some ascending bubbles and very heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of biscuit and bread dough, and the flavor is the same with a mild, rounding bitterness. Mouthfeel is almost medium, and Mahr’s Brau Leicht finishes crisp and refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yet another mistaken purchase, as I suspected that the ’leicht’ on the label meant light... but since I spent some months in Bamberg years ago and couldn’t remember this particular brewery, I gave it a shot. It is a pleasant, very light lager beer. I believe that this would compare quite well with other brews in this category, which damns with faint praise indeed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a small head and bits of lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness, fruity and bit of citrus in the background. Taste of fruity sweetness, malt and grass. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, clean and refreshing with a subtle sweetness to round it out. Not bad for a low alcohol beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bue directement au pub): Un surprenant mélange citronné et levuré qui laisse le blé cru s’exprimer librement. Le corps est évidemment dénudé, spécialement vers la finale, mais c’est un ratio très acceptable pour une bière de ce genre.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Dry, herbal and citrusy, this light lager succeeds in pleasing even though it has been stripped of most of its attributes.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the shiny pale yellow.
-Bitterness is kept at a minimal.
-The mouthfeel doesn’t go for extreme lightness, which I appreciate.
-I like the fact the hops are still present in here.
On tap at the brewery.
