COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

bhensonb (11920) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
355 bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a frothy creamy 4 finger white head. Aroma is sweetly bready with hints of citrus and light pitted fruits. Med minus body. Flavor sort of fits the aroma, but it’s a very mild set of flavors. Still much more interesting than American macros.

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Frisch herber, deutlich süß-getreidiger Antrunk, der das Bier auch im weiteren Verlauf dominiert. Etwas trocken, süffig, erfrischend, die Gerste führt. Zum Ende würziger auf hellmalzigen, erneut von der Getreidigkeit regierter Basis. Abgerundetes, stimmig würziges Lager! 8/9/10/9/11/9

Golden yellow with a little creamy head. Some fruitiness in the aroma. Very ’clean’ taste but rather watery. Slightly dry but not too much hoppyness.
