A little on the "wheat" side of taste for me at the beginning, but it really grew on me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly darker than a lager. Moderate to high carbonation; white head. Aroma is almost like hay..... weird.

kevnic2008 (8484) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, grain. Flavour is fruit, malt, hint of hop, grain. Thin body. Boring beer.

BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
330ml Bottle BB 10 Oct 2012: poured @ home into a Westvletren chalice on 07 Dec 2012, some two months after its best before date. Looks OK: good deep golden body with a white covering that tries to hang around, but as in most beers of this style it fades to a wispy swirl and collar as you attack the beer. Grainy nose more than hop or straight malt: taste is leaning towards malts, biscuity and semi-sweet. Crisp body and nice hop finish: easy drinking lager and with enough flavour to interest me. certainly one of the highest scoring lagers I’ve had since joining this site.

varanid99 (560) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2012
Light gold with thin white head. Nose is sweet, malty, not much else. Sweet malty flavour, not much else going on - a bit thin, nothing fancy but definitely drinkable.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze Barton-upon-Humber. Gold, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Low sweet maltiness in the nose, full and sweet in the mouth with a gentle bitter hoppiness and some fruitiness, lingering sweet finish with some esters.

Bif (1561) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a frothy head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of fresh grain, some malt sweetness and bit of pine in the background. Has a mild easy taste of malt sweetness and fresh grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth and a bit refreshing. Nothing fancy here. Nice drinkable lager, nothing to rave about but better than most macro offerings. probably best on a hot day.

jamestulloch (1578) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Aroma: Sweet honey and cashew nut.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a small white head that quickly fades to nothing. Very little carbonation.

Taste: Slightly sweeter and maltier than most macro lagers. Pretty average.

Palate: Thin body with a slick mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: Not much to get excited about here. As far as lagers go, this is okay.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle by SEP-12. Lightly sweet, very malty nose, pours a gleaming clear golden with tons of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is sweet and malty, lightly grainy with faint fruity and vanilla accents in the deep bg. Crisp but relatively smooth, clean light body, fresh and refreshing. I seem to like this a lot more than everyone else.
