   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 20/20
MartinT (8024) - 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.

3fourths (8214) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 multiple fresh bottles. bright fruit nectar hop nose (apricot, orange, gelatin). hoppy, fresh, very clean with a crisp and light body, a toasty hay and dried grass / citrus focused flavor and a light mineral dustiness. frothy, round, full carbonation in the mouth with amazing lightness and leanness to the body as well. zingy and zesty lemon / lemongrass/ grass / citrus flavors lingering late. 4+ level lager.

Gravity cask at Churchkey. Clear yellow, massive white head and lacing. Aroma of light citrus without sourness. Very light body. Tasty.

TAR (2517) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle, best by March 2013, consumed in Nov. 2012: Luminous golden. Thick white halo of creamy consistency. Luxuriant perfumey hop aromas of flowers, pepper, lemon, and bright grassiness. Underlying pils malt starches and uncured hay. Light note of dough. Soft carbonation, wonderfully natural in feel. Exuberantly hoppy upfront, with a "green" and juicy zip and lemony twist. Trailing herbal spice is adorned with a clean, lush and snappy pils malt blanket. Sweet and haylike, as well. Ample starchy depth and textures envelop the palate and contrast nicely with the invigorating mineral and lemon interplay. Trace doughiness somewhat mars the brightness in the center, as it lends unnecessary weight. Though a dab of nectar somewhat compensates at it shyly emerges. Assertively peppery and lemon zesty hoppiness comprises the remarkably lean and dry finish, as a mint leaf sparkle highlights the gracefully supportive sweet hay and crackery pils malt. A hopcentric golden lager that calls to mind Spezial Ungespundet in all its lemony and herbal hop expressiveness. Perhaps a tad doughy, but I would happily quaff this all day long.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
Hellgelbes Urbräu, minimal trüb mit viel feinporigem Schaum. Blumiges Malz und floraler Hopfen im frischen Aroma. Getreidig-strohiger Beginn, medium lieblich malzig, nur leicht würzig. Der Hopfen setzt verhalten ein, steigert sich aber angenehm. Ein sehr harmonisches und ausgewogenes Landbier mit guter Süffigkeit.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour, small white head. Low carbonation. Malty aroma. Notes of grass, hops. Slightly soapy and bitter in the finish. Altogether a solid brew.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2009
As lagerbier, draft from brewpub. Light golden. Lasting beige head. Has grainy entry and smells like a Franconian farm, really nice. Pure mellow earthy grain flavors. Good brew.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Lagerbier @ brewpub. Ceramic mug. The aroma has lots of minerals and pediococcus. Herbal accent to the palate, again with lots of pedio, minerals and also a light caramel malt character as well.
