htnicholas (49) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
From a 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with an ample thick white head. Moderate carbonation. Smells of sweet carmel, bread, and hay. Taste is dominated by sweet carmel and bread-like malt flavors with very slight hoppiness to it. Mostly sweet finish. A little less hop character than I would expect. A decent session beer but a little sweeter than I would like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The body is a bright and has a light yellow gold color and inside there were lots of little yeast floaters as well as some visible carbonation too. Its head is made of a light, loose, bright white foam which builds up tall, then quickly settles down to just a thin film covering. Lacing is slick and minimal. There is a mild pale and biscuity malt character in the aroma with some light straw like and noble hope notes. Its flavor is very clean and refreshing. There is a nice bready/biscuity malty base with some mild sweetness. It also has some earthy/bready yeast notes as well. This is then balanced by a pleasant mix of classic German hops that add some herbal spice, some bitterness, a very light touch of citrus and a good crisp dry finish. The palate is light to medium with lively balanced carbonation.
