3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Beer Hunter describes this beer as "notably aromatic; with a clean, quite sweet, malty palate; and a late, light, nutty dryness."
I found it to be very crisp and light on the palate, with a delicate sweet maltiness. The nose is fragrant but not strong. The finish is long and dry.

Nice rocky white head and golden yellow body. Brings back fond memories of Germany but its difficult to put this light beer in a bottle and expect it to be good months later. Not too bad.

Average German lager. Nothing special. Very bitter finish,
and light malty flavor. Has tinge of pine taste. Otherwise,

this is a good one for the Swill drinkers to start out on, training wheels for crap beer drinkers, I would say.Tastes better than it looks, decent head, nicely balanced,a good choice for someone trying, or wanting to get away from macros,keep it in your beer fridge for times when someone comes over and asks for a Bud,BudLite,Miller, etc.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a ultra clear very pale yellow with a 3-finger head that shrinks to a nice lumpy layer. The smell reveals an earthy grain with black pepper spicing. The taste is a lightly sweetened malt of earthy tones and the hops that are in the aromas are not apparent in the taste. Very, very mild hopping...perhaps under-hopped. It is a very pleasant taste despite the lack of bite. It is a light bodied brew with just a light sticky-sweet mouthfeel and drinkability is quite high for this one. Prosit!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Respectable lager, considering how easy it is to find on tap in the US.
Fruity, hoppy aroma, with a well-balanced flavor

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer poured a light gold color and formed a nice white head that left some lace. Some light carbonation present. The aroma was of hops and touch of lemon. The flavor was of hops and a little lemon. The finish was a bit astrigent and had a bit of citrus to it. Not bad for a session beer, but there are better ones out there.
