MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2006
(swing top bottle) Hazy, yellow colour with a short foamy diminishing white head. Sweet malty, slightly worty, yeasty aroma with faint hints of hops. Sweet flavour, light body, quite low on carbon. Yeasty and wort-malty taste; sweetbitter malty and slightly hoppy finish. Smells and tastes rather unfinished as if it has been bottled too early. Still drinkable Zwickelbier, but unsatisfying. Have to get it on tap at the brew pub next time.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 My Bottom Line :
Delicately toasted pils malts, lemongrass angles and suave herbal hops are impeccably interwoven in this über-soft, süffig lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy sheet of foam protects the misty blond.
-The expansive yet soft carbonation is a perfect match for the slender residual sugars.
-Pils malt flavors possess some crunch while never being overwhelming.
-This brew is near perfect as a quencher, even in the bottled version called Urbräu. This rating though is for the tap version called Lagerbier at the brewery. The bottles can be excellent, but the freshest is always the best for these types of subtle lagers.
-If more North American breweries brewed « house blonds » that were this competent, maybe sessionable beers would be taken more seriously over here.

On tap at the brewery gasthof and from bottles.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Fresh, hoppy nose. Rather light-bodied dominated by pilsener malt. Light hoppy finish. Solid craftmanship. 190206
