Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2007
From a 500ml bottle purchased at Edelweiss--Poured a clear pale whitish yellow straw hue with a big white head. Nose of cheap cereal grains. Flavor abundantly sweet and over malted. Grassy and skunky. Pretty terrible. Most of this went down my drain.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 25, 2007
500 ml bottle. Clear, pale yellow with a white head. Grainy nose, light dusty hop. Too sweet. Flavor is sweet grain, a bit musty, corny and grassy. Not awful, but close.

I should have my head checked. I paid $4 for a flippin’ light beer. Okay, so it’s a German made light beer. Big whoop. Aroma was weak with minimal amounts of corn and a bit sour. Appearance is a pale (really pale) yellow with a one finger head which dissipated almost immediately into a scummy, big bubbled top. Watery. Bland. Small amount of carbonation. Comparing it to other light beers, and it’s not bad. It should stay that way and if you drink this with that one thought in your mind, you can get thru all 16.9 ounces of it.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Pale gold pour with fizzy white head and a lot of carbonation streams. Aroma and flavor have grainy pale malt, hops, citrus, in roughly that order of magnitude. Not a beer I’d buy again, but you can do a lot worse in this genre.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle at the Moan and Dove circa Summer 2005. Had to drink this as part of my quest to join the ’Mug Club’ elite. Don’t really ever want to drink this again, and I feel like I have a pretty good memory of this experience even though it was almost 2 years ago. Pours just like the picture to the left, clear golden yellow with a frothy white head that fades after a couple minutes. Good lacing. Nose is grainy and cereal like, with a slight sweetness and a slightly noticeable hop aroma. Flavor is pretty bland with a little sweet malt, more cereal , and water. I ended up chugging the second half of the glass just so I could move on to the next beer. This is not incredibly tasty, but it doesnt really have any flaws and I’ve alwyas had a thing for Mahrs. That being said, I dont think I would ever pay 3 or 4 bucks for a bottle of this--even if I wanted something light.

bhensonb (12044) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Very light aroma - seems to be grassy hop. Not certain about malt. Very pale gold color with a decent white head. Thin bodied. Carbonation a bit sharp. Very light malt, decent amount of grassy hop for balance. It’s quite clean; the finish is dry, and more bitter than could reasonably be expected. Really very good for a low alcohol beer.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2007
Bottled. A light yellow beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet grainy with a light dusty hoppy note. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel, but also a bit boring. The body is no wonder thin, but it is good for the style.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2007
The aroma is sweet, metallic, and lightly grassy. The appearance is super pale gold with an almost non existent head. The flavor is bitter and lightly sweet but mostly dry. The palate is watery. Overall not that good but not too bad for a low alcohol beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle: Pale yellow, clear, large foamy white head, spotty lacing, moderate carbonation.   Pale malt flavor, light sweetness, finishing with a slightly dry astingency.   Matches the aroma of pale malts and cereal.   Has that typical Mahrs Brau finish.   Body and mouthfeel are average, at best.   Not bad, but very boring.   What do you expect from a low alcohol, cept not a lot of flavors... in which this fit the bill pretty well.   German lawnmower beer?

BigBeer45 (1301) - Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle, poured pale gold with a green tint, little particles in the brew and it is cloudy, pilsner malt and bread fragrances, some grass aroma, little sweetness in the nose, light taste of malt, small hops on the tongue, light drinking beer, there is a faint off-ness in the taste, do not know if it is from traveling or ingredients.
