3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear golden straw color. I love how translucent the body is, in particular. The head is a two finger white shade; retention isn’t the best, but there’s some really nice lacing left on the glass.
S: Aye, it’s a bit skunked (lol, green bottles), but it could have been worse. The notes of pale malts, faint sweetness, and zesty hops aren’t dulled in any significant capacity.
T: At first, some of the hop profile comes through with notes of grass and lemon zest, but the finish is pure, balanced, simple malt goodness. In particular, it has a nutty flavor that I really enjoy (that, and the diacetyl is kept in check). Personally, I want more hops; but I won’t complain about the balance this offers.
M: Not quite as bone dry as I like my lagers to be - nor is it too sweet. The texture does the best it can to provide good drinkability without significant hoppiness.
O: Green bottles mean I wouldn’t buy this one again. However, I would seek it out on tap. An under-appreciated lager unfortunately scorned both by its bottle color and by who makes it.

This German beer has a regular pale blond color, light body and mediun fuzz. Also, it has a good aroma, very malty/cereal and a great taste, sweet and bitter at the end.

Klar gul farge bra med skum. Lukter malt og korn og gjær. Passe bitter med en tørr ettersmak. Det går mange på dusinet av øl som dette, ikke noe mere enn en ok opplevelse.

Draught at Bavarian Bier Café, Broadbeach on 29/11/13. Poured a clear golden colour with a one-finger white frothy head that diminished quickly and produced poor spotty lacing. Carbonation very low with the rare medium sized bubble. Aroma with a hint of sourish malt. Taste initially a bit nothing (not sweet) followed by an acidic bitterness. Light body. Light with a long acid bitter finish. Not that nice.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (17:-). Maltig doft, inslag av halm. Maltig och söt smak, något metallisk, inslag av halm. Trevligt besk och torr avslutning.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, light. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again.

Vad heter mellanmjölk på tyska? "Mager", tydligen, enligt Google translate. Var ju en skaplig beskrivning på den här tysken som fastnat i mittfåran och knappast kommer att ta sig därifrån heller. Frågor på det?

Just tasted one for the first time the other day. I normally don’t like any beer the color of urine but this was delicious!
Was at my neighbor’s house and he had one Spaten Premium Lager left in his fridge. Drank it...Yummy! Pleasant aroma. Nice aftertaste.
Then he had a Landshark. Never had one so i tried it. Almost barfed! :P

50cl bottle, from Systembolaget Luleå. White bumpy "deutschhh" head. Straw yellow body.
Scents of hops and a fresh meadow of grass, flowers and herbs.
Grains and hops and malts in the taste. Feels a little creamy, but well balanced, somewhat to the sweet side. Aftertaste with sweet malts, notes of caramel, grains.
Overall decent bright beer.
