Benzai (9433) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle [from Euro Swap 7 thanks to Sebilinz] @ home. (Note: even after consulting Erich / Sebilinz we weren’t sure which beer it was, but we’re guessing this one. Bottle said "helles" but also 5.0% ABV. Barcode was not in the database so no way to tell for sure.) Clear light yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, hayish, decently bitter. Suitable body and carbonation. Quite clean and crisp. Nice.

Flasche von Geiserich, vielen Dank! Dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht getreidig, malzig. Geschmack malzig, getreidig mit leicht metallischem Abgang.

Braudog (5952) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Slightly murky golden hay-colored beer. Not much of a head. Evokes the musty, dusty side of European lagers ... big time corn-like vegetal character. The finish is creamy, both in feel and flavor, followed by a very final dying kick of that crunchy corn. (#5509, 5/7/2014)

kramer (5256) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a small fizzy white head that left a bit of lacing. The nose is mostly bready malt with a minimal touch of hops and some cereal grains. The flavor is a bit bland with a little too much sweetness for the style and light hoppiness. Some pale bready malts and a little bit of a vegetal note. Light bodied with a bit of clinginess on the finish and fizzy carbonation. Not the best example of the style.

olsvammel (3803) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from an Austrian friend. It poured a lightly hazy golden liquid with a white head. Bready and malty smell with some flowers and grass. Similar taste. Ok lager.

BeerandBlues2 (10447) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, spicy hops and a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with light corn notes, spicy hops and light bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

islay (1364) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2012
16.9 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-24-12. Labeled as “Stift Schlagl Kristall.” Aroma features white grape juice, apple juice, lemon, and golden raisins. Pours an effervescent, mostly clear, pale gold with some milky haze. Many small, slow-rising bubbles. Moderate to large amount of uneven, off-white head. Produces good lacing. Minerally taste features mineral water with light bitterness and just a little bit of fruitiness (apricot, peach). Bland. Dry, minerally aftertaste. Light body; watery. Somewhat lively in the palate. Looks cool. Smells okay. Subpar, weak flavor and mouthfeel. Not offensive at all, but not good.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2012
(bottle) Pale gold with quickly fading white head. Bready malt aroma. Flavor is bready/grainy malt with just a hint of hops in the finish.

vyvvy (4470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours clear yellow / gold with a good sized white head. The aroma has pale malt, light bread and a hint of hops. Medium body that’s a touch rough with mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with clean pale malt, lager smoothness and spicy hops. The finish is drier and has a dried brown grass note. Decent beer and would be a good summer refresher.

thegreenrooster (3399) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pour is a bright gold with a large white head. Aroma is some bready grain and maybe sour apple. Flavor is again grainy and floral with a kinda metallic after taste that went away after a while. Deffinatly has some body to it for a helles. I though i was in for a kristal weizen after seeing the label but it was not to be.
