Manchmal muß es etwas Besonderes sein!

Genau der richtige Zeitpunkt um Geist und Seele mit einem Waldhaus Spezial Gold zu verwöhnen. Mild und harmonisch rund mit dem ausgeglichenen malzartigen Charakter.

This gold lager did nothing for me; just a standard sweetish, fairly standard lager offering; boring.

Pours a clean, bright strawy color, with a big froth head. Smells of biscuity malts, with hints of straw and grainy hay. Has a pleasant malt foundation, which begins earthy, with bready notes to it, then turning a bit sweeter, due to crisp, slightly honeyed wheat. This gets balanced by a mild, grassy hop presence, adding to the malty body, while keeping its sweetness at bay. The beer remains on the sweeter side, while it developes a wheaty, crisp maltiness.

Calisky (2415) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JAN 5, 2015
Couleur dorée claire, mousse qui disparait. Nez leger de houblon et paille. Gout houblonné, malté doux et fruité, pomme. Bon corps. Fin fruitée et petite amertume. Pas trop mal pour le style

Welch ein klassisches und feines Helles. Süffig, aber nicht billig, dazu ein feiner Hauch von Malz und Vanille. Getreidige Momente wurden ausgelöscht, dafür kommt es leicht buttrig und minimal grasig. YES !

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (with many thanks to Mariusz!) in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of hops, straw, mild fruits, hay, flowers and grains. Mild-flowery-hoppy finish. Nice one.

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 1, 2014
8/11 0.5 l bottle. It pours clear golden body with almost no head again. Aroma is dominated by flowery and honey malts, some dust and a little bit of grain. Flavor is lightly bitter, herbal and cardboard hoppy, dusty, with slightly less pronounced malt sweetness beyond. Medium bodied with shorter, watery and only a bit bitterish paper finish rounds it as a quite boring pils-ish helles, but definitely not bad either.

Aroma: yeast, dough, resin; Appearance: clear urine, small foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, slick texture, soft carbonation A well-rounded helles, could be sessioned but care is still advised due to well hidden alcohol.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma with faint grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint bread and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, faint bread and faint hoppyness. Could use more bitterness. Not really so "Spezial".
