Great zwikel, it has been clarifying in time but still a great beer, optimal balance between the hop character and the malts, more sweet than bitter but not too sweet. A really nice session beer always perfectly brewed.

Bozo_skeleton (558) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 14, 2014
Blonde doree un peu palichonne et voilee, carbo moyenne, collet de bulles moyennes. Aromes legers, pain beurre, agrumes, paille. Saveur cereales. Attaque vive, final assez amere avec un retour legerement piquant.

Westkyoto77 (538) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured hazy blonde, big broken head. Slightly stinky nose of wheat and overripe fruit. Body rather thin and uninspired. Flat flavours of wheat, banana, peach. Perhaps the bottle was close to expiry. Even so, not again.

Bottle - from Beermerchants.com, hazy gold with slim white head. Aroma of floral hops, bread and hay. Similar in the taste, pleasant and drinkable. Quite highly carbonated, light bodied. Good.

Bottled, gift from my mother. Slightly hazy golden colored, small white head. Dusty nose, hops, very German, nice. Watery and bitter flavor, pleasant lasting bitter finish. The first beer of my holiday in Germany, let the good times begin :-).

Bottle in Munich. Yet another Helles. Fresh and aromatic hoppiness. Liquid bread, drink it fresh. Slides smoothly down.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
33cl bottle from some beer store in Gräfelfing. Pours a lightly hazed, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, somewhat grainy malts with some floral fruits, acetaldehyde, a light hay, and a bit of a yeasty spice. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, somewhat grainy malts with a light yeast spice, some grass, a few floral notes, and a bit of a green apple acetaldehyde. Finishes lightly bitter and somewhat dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. A bit too much of a green apple note, but not terrible.

Hazy golden pour. Giant white head. Plenty of lacing. Earthy malt and yeast aroma. Watery yeast and malt. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
