COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Translation from German)
With Heinrich Kiener began our ascention to the "Art of breweing of the highest degree". Completely after their motto "Only the best of everything" the Kiener family guarantees every generation quality and taste for the beer lover. Strictly after the Reinheitsgebot of 1516 we brew the favorite beer of H. Keiner with at least 12° malt extract after the original recipe from his time.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of bready malt, graininess, a bit of hay and grassy notes. Sweetish flavor with bready malt, graininess and mild bitter grassy hops. Light to medium-bodied. Decent and easy-drinking.

kevnic2008 (7099) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
Pale yellow, no real head. Aroma is sweet with a very slight fruitiness. A fruitiness that comes across as more vinegar like. Could be a bunk batch.

Ruprecht_007 (551) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 7, 2013
Vůně sladogvá s nnádechem karamelu. Nádherné pné tělo s výraznou příjemnou sladovou chutí a příjemnou vyšší hořkostí.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013
50cl bottle from some grocery store in Salzburg. Pours a clear yellow-gold colored body with an inch thick, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is grainy, lightly sweetened malts with some straw, touches of fruit, and slight notes of oxidation. Flavor is similar. Grainy pale malts with a very light sweetness, some hay and grass, light cardboard notes, and a hint of fruit. Finishes crisp and dry with a very light bitterness. Light body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent premium lager. Nothing special and not terrible, but easy drinking and enjoyable enough on the way up to Eagle’s Nest.

Brouwerij (889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Tap at Biergarten. Pours a clear gold with replenishing white head, great retention thanks to etched mug. Aroma is lager, yeasty, and gym shorts. Flavor is surprisingly malty, mildly caramel and nutty, yeasty finish and a mild malt aftertaste. Moderate carbonation and medium-light body. Maltier than I had expected, drinkable.

Monsta112 (29) - AUSTRIA - APR 16, 2013
Golden clear colour with a fine white intensive head. Sweet hayish malty Aroma with some grassy hops in the back. Sweet malt in the beginning with very fine carbonation on the tongue making the sweetness even more intense. On the other side grassy hops with some bitterness. Medium bodied. Short hoppy finish. Not too complex in my opinion. Expected more.

burg326 (3244) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Poured a clear golden yellow color, aromas of hay, grass, cereal, and some sweet malt. Flavor is the same, a classic lager/pils feel to it, ok in the Florida heat.

A fairly generic beer. The best choice on the golf course today. Much better than a Miller Light... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
