Formerly known as Erntebier.

Brewed from two different pale barley-malt varieties, Maxlrain ERNTE HELL or PALE HARVEST, is a full-bodied welcome alternative for beer-lovers with an awareness of alcohol levels but nevertheless reluctant to sacrifice quality of taste. With only 2.8% vol. of alcohol, this popular beer speciality with its characteristic malt aroma and stable foam head is 100% MAXLRAIN in taste and quality. In many places Maxlrain ERNTE HELL is also served as a “light midday beer”. 7.5°

Erzengel (7928) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Schmeckt nach getrockneter Bergwiese - direkt nach der Ernte - mit Kühen drauf. Dabei süffig-herb-wässrig. Ein pelziger Nachgeschmack bleibt auf der Zunge.
--> Nicht mein Ding!

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2014
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Pale golden color. Dry honeish and herbal aroma. Dry herbal, peppery and honeyish taste with hint of metal. Light body. Not a bad drink for thirst but feels lacking. Good for this category.

EithCubes (5634) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottled at "Ernte Hell", by 22.01.2013. Mild pale malty nose, pours a very pale golden, clear with a soapy white head. Taste of some mildly malt, wort, touch of sweetness and hops but overall the effect is of clean attenuation and bland, flourishless base. Medium body, firm but a little soft.

Had this as Maxlrainer Ernte Hell. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass also, zippy, nice head. Starts mild, but not washy, spicy-wheaty, fine malty. Modest sweet. Finish well balanced, grasy-wheaty. Very drinkable. Nice!
