12oz purchased at the Coop tonight poured into my small weizen glass. Very short lasting 1 finger head left behind spotty lace.. atop a light golden brew.. very clear. Grainy pale malts.. very clean.. this is one of the good times where less is more... I love a good helles... and this is a good one for sure. Malty .. very restrained bitterness and just the slightest breath of spicy/grassy hop flavor... smooth lite/medium body with just enough carbonation... as it warms, it sweetens.. but not in a bad way.. the malts come to the front as they should. This is not a Dortmunder .. and nobody should think otherwise.

0.5 l bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Aroma has malts and herbal hops. Appearance is pale and clear like some pale lager. Taste is, however, nothing like pale lager. This is malty and nicely hopped. Better than I expected from such a pale beer. This was excellent after Finnish sauna.

jenznett (91) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2016
Angenehmer Geruch, goldene Farbe. Schönes Malzaroma, etwas Brot, südlicher Einschlag. Aus der Flasche prickelnder als aus dem Glas. Erfrischend, aber nicht zu wässrig.

By whatever nonenclature this bier is marketed as, it’s a pretty easy one to enjoy, as far as my taste buds go, anyway. Solid and unadorned and enjoyable.

Nurmis (341) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours clear and golden. Quite weak aroma of grains and grassy hops. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness. Nothing special but not the weakest either.

elosop (288) - SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Mycket ljusgul med ytterst lite skum. Svag doft av malt. Smaken lätt besk och tunn. Eftersmaken ganska kort. Tämligen mjukt kolsyrad. Lättdrucken.

MadRobin (2793) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Crystal clear pale yellow with a 3-finger an off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of grain, grass, mild floral notes and a little lemon. Taste of grain, mild citrus and a touch of grass. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Carbonated golden lager with a thin head. Clearly continental with its German malt and maltiness.
