Light golden color with small but lastinghead, smells of wheat oats and honey. Taste clearly of honey, roasted malts and very little hops. Nice amount of carbonation.

pour is lemon yellow that is see through. white light head that rings quickly. aroma is like a toned down grolsch, lumpy will dig this aroma i bet. notes of acorns and hay in here also. flavor is clean refreshing light sweetness with a touch of bitter on the backside. kind of wheaty tasting somehow. a nice lawnmower beer.i can appreciate this one even though it isn’t my style at the moment.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Bottle. Pours a pale translucent golden with a white fluffy head. Carbonation was extremely effervesent. Nice aroma of european pale malts, lemon, and some biscuit dough Initial flavor is citrus balanced by mildly spicy and herbal hops. Texture in the finish is thin, but that works just fine for this style. For crying out loud, does every damn beer have to be full bodied to get a good rating here. Puh-lease! But the flavor in the finish is big. Strong european lager and herbal hops flavors linger rather nicely. This is a very nice flavorful thirst quencher. I wish I had access to this more often. I like this as much a Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. I need to do a side by side.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Pours with little head, a beautiful gold. Smells of honey-sweetened grass and malt. Tasty and refreshing, with a moderate palate. One of my favorite beers.

I really liked this beer. Very light, pours a nice golden color. Has a nice clean hoppy aftertaste. Goes down very smoothly.

Active carbonation, yellow, fizzy. Strong yeast aroma, some white bread and saltine cracker. I agree with jrmac, this beer hits whatever helles pedigree is in my brain. There’s some shortbread, and i get some dry wheat. Finishes fairly clean and completely inoffensive which for me and lagers is a ringing endorsement. I think I found my new favorite lager.

This is a very refreshing beer. It looks great, goes down smooth and has a grainy after taste.

degbert (1103) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours a stunning gold with a fine-grained, white head. Nose is fruity and toasty with an almost wine-like note. Taste is crisp, clean, roasty, and hoppy with a long, fruity finish. A very, very well-made lager.

Bottle. Clear pale gold with a tight white head. Aroma is corn like malt and some light fruity sweetness. Taste follows closely. Solid mouthfeel and lively carb. Super drinkable. One of the better readily available lagers I've had.

I'm not usually a lager person but I could definately do one of these again. Quite aromatic carmel malts with a slight flowery hop nose. A bit of a grapefruit flavor but not terribly bitter. Much better than most american lagers.
