A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Very solid lager. Nothing spectacular, but it has a grassy/hop nose with a smooth easy drinking body. A little light in some flavors, but good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at dinner. Pours a golden color with a small lacy white head. Earthy, skunky, buttery, and crisp. Decent quaffer.

sfuen03 (357) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2012
355 ml. bottle. Standard appearance for a lager: glittering golden color with a standard white head and a vivid carbonation. Weak aroma, a little hop and bread, but nothing remarkable. Taste is above the standard for a lager, a little hoppier, simple, light and correctly balanced.

550ml bottle. Clear light yellow color. Big foamy fizzy white head. Quickly shrinks to a reasonable size. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly sweet taste, little savory. Some salted bready flavor. Straight-forward, but clean and tasty. Solid lager.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2012
16oz bottle, pale, golden clear, white foam, perfect pale lager. Great taste, hoppy taste (not overwhelming) that I was surprised to find in a lager, balanced, with malt backbone. Clean, crisp taste. Overall, an organic beer that I found enjoyable.

The beer is crystal clear, and appears light yellow hued. The head measures nearly an inch thick, slowly descending to a thin, white layer. The aroma is of pils malt, light citrus, and grain. It smells good for the style. The flavor is excellent, and I can see why this beer ranks best in its class. Clean and refreshing. The beer is light, simple, and pleasant. Toast, biscuits, bread, with a hint of citrus. Terrific balance. I could drink several of these. Thoroughly enjoyable. I wish this was available in six packs. I will certainly be having this one again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-07-2011

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Lightly malty aroma. Taste is similar bit a bit of a bitter hop bite. Watery overall and really just an average, sort of bland beer. 5% abv.

Holmen1 (3641) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
Flaske på Cafe Blaagaards Apotek: som en tørr tysk pils, kanskje med litt ekstra kropp. Ingenting spesielt, så dette ble en engangshendelse.

On draft at some pub in Glasgow, UK. Clear golden colored, white head. Hoppy nose, more malty in flavor. Pleasantly bitter. Nice lager.
