I thought this was skunked at first but it seemed to blow off after a while.
Crytsel clear medium gold in the glass. Malty nose shows good balance - not too sweet. Malt is more overt in the mouth, very smooth, not too fizzy and never gets too sweet. Pretty good and is well brewed but just doesn’t excite (note TN’s below). Would work well as a session type.

Golden amber with a full, creamy white head. Nose is sweet, malty, notes of hops and fruit. Lively carbonation but watery and medium bodied. The flavor was somewhat sweet and malty but there was nothing noteworthy about this beer.

Good clear gold color, white head.
Not the best, but hey, these folks make some of the best wheat beers in Germany that are widely available in the U.S.
Decent, but there are better Dortmunder/Helles if that’s what you’re looking for.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color. Aroma is a little grainy and a little watery. Flavor is grainy and seems to be quite bitter. Not that good of a brew. Drinkable but I think a cheap lager would do in place of this stuff.
