Like the design of their labels. Bottle (even if Nuremberg is just a few kilometers from here). Light yellow beer, durable foam, hazy. Interesting hoppy smell. Medium bitterness, aroma is little bit of grain, hops, citrus, grass. Dry finish. Easily drinkable Helles but does not stand out.

kappldav123 (4575) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, malty-wheaty, modest dry. More and more grasy, some flowery-hoppy notes. Really interesting beer!

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle (purchased at the brewpub). Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of lemon zest and cat pee. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not as bad as the Rotbier, but still pretty flimsy/weak, bland, and lacking in character. Drinkable in a pinch, but it simply cannot compete with the plethora of decent lager in the region.

Hazy pale blond color. Nice delicate aroma of cereals and straws. Light mouthfeel, smooth, with simple but pleasant flavor o straws. Easy but drinkable.

Golden beer with a strongish head. The aroma is fairly dry with a malty edge, and the flavour is quite strongly yeasty with a malty dry feel.

Part of the Nurnberg Beer Raid 2011. On tap at the 14.Fränkisches Bierfest in Nurnberg , Germany. Pours hazy gold with an off white head. Aroma is a sweet and floral. Taste is also floral but unbalanced. Palate is also not that great. This beer needs some work to be better.
