Sampled on tap at Vintage 50. Light grain aroma, sweet wiht light sulfur and mild beany noble hops. ’Corny’ but not really. Clear dull golden with thin head. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Starts with light malt sweetness and some wheat tartness. Light acidity. Mild noble hops flavor with hint of bitterness in the finish. Clean after. Refreshing but not quite up there with Cologne offerings.

On tap Sep. 2008: Pours a bright pale golden with a creamywell-lacing white head. Aroma of mild grainy malts and a touch of lager yeast and crisp noble hops. Body starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with a faint pale malty sweetness well balanced with fresh slightly piny noble bittering hops. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at V50. Nice golden color with a pale white head. Nose is a bit sweet and grainy. High levels of carbonation. Nicely crisp with a grassy, clean flavor that is briefly there then gone. Not overly bitter or malty or anything else for that matter. A beer that seems best for a hot summer day as a thirst quencher.
