Bottle. Clere golden colour with a big white head. Grainy hoppy aroma and a sweet light bitter taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2005
This is the first brew that Iím rating that I can honestly use the words "cookie dough" to describe the aroma. Itís a pale straw color with a bubbly, fizzy white head. Very, very soft in the mouth, itís got a honey-sweet malt flavor with hints of hop bitterness turning up on the sides of the tongue in the finish. I can see downing a bunch of these on a warm, humid Chicago summer night.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 7, 2005
(16.9 oz bottle: $2.30 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) The nose is doughy, grassy and mildly hoppy. Ditto for the flavor, with the gentle hops bitterness becoming most prevalent in the finish. Fairly light in body, but not watery. Medium yellow in color and fully clear, so the handful of carbonation bubbles rising through the beer are readily visible. The bubbly white head settles to a thin layer, holding there for the duration of the session. Only a few wisps of lace are left on the glass. I was hoping for better, but itís simple, light and drinkable.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Clear yellowy appearance, moderate head formation. Mildly fruity, hoppy, grainy nose. Very light bodied, dry, hoppy palate. Sweet lemony malt background. Some sharpness towards the end. Drinkable but not too impressive. Looking at the ratings my bottle could have been slightly off.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2004
Bottle brought back from Germany. I find it hard to rate beers like this. The main quality is being refreshing and crisp, flavours and aroma are very delicate and hard to place. Virtually no aroma, what is there isnít very nice (almost like unfermented wort), it didnít look good. Moving on to the first sip, and this is actually really good, the aroma certainly does not carry over into the tasting. Light and delicate with a good malt character, almost fruity, slightly sweet Bready and spice notes. Itís not overcarbonated, and feels rather soft on the tongue. Nice.

JonMoore (2021) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a lovely golden straw colour with a nice, but quickly diminishing white head, which left some lacing. Aroma is sweet hops. Taste is sweet, nicely balanced malt and hops. Refeshing with a smooth, but slightly thin mouthfeel, and a light hoppy finish. Nice.

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.
