Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest, Jacksonville, FL, 3 June 2006. An OK German lager. Typical lager flavor, drinkable but not great. Many notches below their weissbeer in quality and enjoyment.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Enjoyed their weissbeer, but this one wasn’t so good. It tasted like Warsteiner with a grassy aroma and aftertaste. Cloudy yellow appearance with some citrus detectable. No head and lacing gone by the second sip. Since this is from the world’s oldest brewery, it’s possible that my bottle was from 1040. Label read "Original Lager."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of bread dough, cookie malt, and toasted pale malt. Taste is bready, cookie, with a very clean lager finish. A little bit of Hallertau bitterness to round things out makes this is a solid lager. Mouthfeel is medium (full) bodied with lively carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Active golden body with a white soap head. Nose is strong with lemon, hallertau and clove. A pleasent, active mouth blends an immediate hoppiness with sweet yeast notes and banana. Supprising yeasty notes for a kristal.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Very distinct Bavarian flavor. Very satifying and drinkable. If your looking for a simple German Lager, this is ideal.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear, dull golden, grassy hue. Bubbling body with white head. Apples and citrus in the nose. Medium bodied and super lively. Sweet and smooth. Mildly dry with a short stint of a bitter hop flavor. As it warms, the bitterness starts to shine through. Still lively with a slight caramel sweetness. Slight grainy flavor. Honey note. Finish is smooth with a short lived smokey bitter bite.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very smooth and rounded for a style that really has little vairety amongst the different brewers. Grassy aroma, pungent and yet mild. Buttery palate and a rich malt flavors with some more grass notes.
