Bottle. Bier Huis, Ossett. Pale gold. Thin, dense, lasting, white head. Bready, sweet, grainy malts. Lemon hop. Some sweetness, along the lines of ripe fruit, or ripe banana. Taste is light sweet. Turns fairly dry, with some lemon bitterness. Smooth, clean palate. Finishes with a little metallic bitterness. Quaffable.

Kind of bland in my opinion honestly. Certainly not bad, but not much to say for it. It is ok.

A nice refreshing sipper. Nice white lacing; strong carbonation. Unfortunately mine has tracer of sulphar which is ruining the experience a bit for me. However it is not metallic and the drinkability is excellent. For a hot day this is a good session beer. A lot of lemongrass and pine and fresh hey. A well-made brew but nothing mind-blowing Great for the style.

Slight citrus smell and taste on this one, but otherwise quite typical. Fair amount of carbonation. Quite drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Straw-like cereals and herbal hops ride this light lager, as sulfury angles pierce the citrusy fruitiness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Generous foam tops the pale yellow.
-The light body and prickly effervescence make for an airy mouthfeel.
-Drinkability is sky high.
-Balance is achieved.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours a clear pale yellow color forming a big white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention but a thin layer is quite persistent in the surface and quite many lacings are formed and leftin the glass
S: Classic German Lager in the nose, very grainy with strong notes of sweet malts, bread and flowery hops. Lager yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet grains and bready Lager yeast. In overall, a dry beer despite of the sweet grains upfront. End is made of mild and bit citrus hops bitterness. A bit ashy and metallic
M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and grainy aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Another smooth and easidrinking German Lager beer

Has a pale golden-yellow color, with a small head.
Nearly no aromas detectable, hints of wheat and sweeter malts, with a grassy hop background.
Taste is watery with unpleasantly low carbonation, slightly stale. A refreshing, bitter hop note saves this beer from being undrinkable, which adds character to the usual wheat body among white-bread malts.The hops are noteable till the finsih, getting swallowed by sweeter malts and hay. Has a light-body, with not much to offer.
