nick76 (4213) - 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 (6241) - 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 (1248) - 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.

TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - MAR 6, 2007
1/2 liter bottle. Pours to a hazy, pale golden color, with a soapy white head that fades, and a soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is light, with some gentle grassy hop aroma. Palate is soft, with some mild pale malt flavor, on a round, clean body. This beer finishes with some mild pale malt flavor, then finishes with a mild, grassy hop bitterness that lingers. Very fresh tasting, easy drinking, pale lager. Its low alcohol makes it the kind of beer you could pound with impunity. This beer had gentle aromas and flavors, but make no mistake, this is a very good beer, one I enjoyed with a nice German meal of bratwurst and sauerkraut. This would make a really good beer to enjoy by the liter.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Clear light yellow pour with a substantial and quickly dissipating snow white head. Lacing is decent, erratic. Light in all aspects as to be expected. Nose is grassy hops, sugary malts and lemon zest. Flavor is much the same, noted additions include crisp hoppiness and toasted grain. Finish is moderately yeasty with a crisp bite from what limited hops are present. Mouthfeel is very light, but isn’t that part of the idea? A very good light beer from an excellent traditional brewery. If I ever need a light beer I now know where to turn.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 15, 2007
500 ml bottle from Table & Vine, Northampton MA (January 2007), served out of the fridge from a Flying Fish pint glass. Very clear light yellow-gold with a decent frothy white head that diminishes rapidly but leaves fairly thick lacing....very light but clean malty nose, touch of dried grasses, nothing exciting or memorable but pleasant enough....dry, crisp and surprisingly hoppy body is on the thin side for sure and containing little malt sweetness or body, becoming eventually quite bitter and lightly mineralic at the finish....as close to a real pils as any "light" beer I’ve had; were it a bit maltier and stronger in the nose, this would be excellent. As it is, impressive for a light beer as nearly all the previous reviewers have noted.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle at the brew pub July 2005, pale gold, moderate white head and gentle condition. Low gentle hoppiness in the nose, quite thin in the mouth with some gentle malt and hop bitterness showing up, low tingle of bitterness in the finish.

TheEpeeist (3332) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2006
16.9 oz, bottled on 50.35? Clear, barely yellow, with a white, then grey, pocked head. Scummy lace. Lemony Wonder bread with bathroom undertones. A little body, a little bitter, but not much different than a standard macro. Michelob comes to mind. Carb is somewhat subdued with just a hint of skunk. Bitter pith finish with pancake batter.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, pale pilsener golden with a nice, dense, white head. Rather hoppy, floral nose. Light body, completely dominated by a very distinct hoppiness leaving a solid dose of bitterness. Very good for the style. 071106

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 16, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty orange peel and slightly astringent. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of malt hops and mild astringency. Not one that I would buy again.
