Pale export beer. A particurlarly palatable and full-bodied beer.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Straw color with a fizzy white head. Spicy, tart(?) nose. Lots more hops in the aroma than I expected. Do I detect a slight cassis aroma? Flavors of fresh bread are there, but it was the hops in this that really got me. As soon as it hits the palate, the tingling starts. Great dry, crisp profile with tasty malt to back it all up. Very clean and balanced. Almost Alt-like in the hop department.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Hazy yellow (with yeast) in color. A little more bitter than the Urtyp and with an out of place flavor. Has the typical malty Helles flavor taste.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2004
Clear yellow appearance with a big steady white head. Mild and sweet aroma of malt. Soft, malty and sweet flavour, small otes of bread. Mild malty finish. Easy to forget.

I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

DrnkMcDermott (2845) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
Bottled. Not quite a thrill a minute, but decent as German pilsnener-type lagers go. Pours a frothy head with big bubbles over a familiar German straw colord body. Low carbonation leaves a pleasing tickle. Somewhat doughy/biscuity malt action nicely counterbalanced by hops, unfortunately, its means neither is very noticeable. Goes down pretty nicely, at least. A touch of hop-bitter aftertaste remains on the tongue.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2004
16.9 oz. bottle Pours thin and clear, with a light, quickly fading, ephemeral head. Powerful, sweet hops overwhelm the nose, suprising from a beer with the consistency of water. This one isn't meant to sit in the glass - it tastes thin when sipped. Best to drink it the way it was intended: rapidly!

thedm (4973) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 22, 2004
This bottled brew poured a large head of fine to large sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was carbonated with a transparent light yellow orange color. The aroma was lightly malty and somewhat floral. The mouth feel was nice smooth crisp and had a mild tingle to it then it finished with a mild hop bite. The flavor was malty yeasty and doughy. All in all it was a nice all around brew.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Bottle. A very easy drinking beer as it went down very clean and smooth. It poured a medium sized white head that was frothy with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was transparent and carbonated with a yellow hue. The nose was lightly malty and sweet. The flavor was sweet and malty with a smooth mouthfeel. The texture was watery/thin and the lacing was fair.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Pale golden straw hue. Small white head. Grassy, apple nose. Pale biscuity malts, very crisp, almost apple or pear like, medium bodied, with a pleasant herbal hop crispness in the finish. Not too shabby, a very drinkable beer.

argo0 (11726) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2004
(500ml, best by 1-28-06)Light haze to a golden yellow body topped by a big white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, bready, light grassy. Taste is medium sweet, bread/biscuit, light citrus. Watery light palate with limited carbonation and no crispness. Pleasant beer, but nothing particularly noteworthy.
