This is definitely better than most lagers out there, but coming from Weihenstephaner brewery this is beer is a bit of a letdown. Pours a translucent yellow gold, with a frothy but quickly disapating head. Aromas of yeast and very subtle citrus, which follows through in th flavor. Aroma of grass as well. A smooth mouthfeel, but slightly over bitter on the finish. It’s a standout among lagers, but compared to this brewery’s hefeweizens it’s nothing that impressive.

Marheb (2137) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
(Bue sur place en fût): Des grains plein l’arôme avec une bonne charpente mielleuse. Croustillant avec une mince empreinte houblonnée, buvabilité monastique.

Lys gyllen med et hvit skum. Maltete aroma med innslag av krydder og sitrus. Smaken følger aroma litt mer sødme i smaken, hint av banan.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
(Draught at Weihenstephaner am Hackeschen Markt, Berlin, 24 July 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, grass, hay, cereal and a touch of vanilla. Malty taste with bread, grass, hay, hints of tropical fruit and a gentle grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a light sweetness. Tasty and well balanced, but doesn’t really stand out. Quite enjoyable.

Beautiful light gold pour in a large mug with a full white fluffed head. Aroma is malted and lightly sweetened. Mild citrus from hops. Flavor is malted and super smooth. Easy drinking for a pale lager all the way through.

I’ve been looking for a really great lager beer and this is it. Some of the other imports are good, but this one is the best.

Very pale, almost white yellow. Savory wheat, some spice, vague hint of fruit. Very clean flavor. Delicious.
