Ernest (6727) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain / cracker), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Very straightforward rendition, but very clean and precise and attractive. What it may lack in charisma is made up in execution and sheer quaffability...this is made for drinking by the liter.

ekstedt (5978) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2015
From a tap at the brewpub. Clear golden, medium white head. Bready aroma with a touch of lager yeast notes, herbal hops. Medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. Elegant.

ippopotamo36 (775) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 1, 2015
At the source draft in Witzgall brauerei in Franconia-Germany. Pours a filtered and bright golden color, medium creamy white cap which stays long enough. Nose: white bread crumb, hidden farmhouse and hay notes, some grass although hops do not really characterize this beer. Mouth: yeasty notes, a bit going buttery with a distinctive easy drinking orientation. Low carbonation, soft body. It meets expectations but I will go for a Landbier tough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the brewery. Clear, brilliant gold, with a low, airy head. Malty nose, bread and biscuits, some esters, herbal hops. Somewhat sweet, malty flavor, light fruit, peaches or apricot, low hops. A bit herbal and peppery finish mooth, silky body. Low carbonation.

motelpogo (7239) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2015
on tap at the brewery. clear, honeyed shade of golden with a billowing, foamy white head; gentle aroma of dandelions and freshly cracked grains; plenty of bitterness with a slightly syruppy malt character, freshly mown grass; no wonder the locals looked like they’d settled in for the day

Beerhunter111 (10472) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2015
Fast klares goldenes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig, leicht süß, etwas trocken. Geschmack dezent herb, getreidig, minimal fruchtig süß, süffig, gut!

Marheb (3172) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2014
(Bue chez Stöhrenkeller et à la brasserie): Paille, zest citronné sur une charpente croustillante et fragile. Longue en bouche, peu ou pas de sucres résiduels.

Gurthnar (3022) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Cuso. Aroma is overall mild, rather stale blunt hoppiness. Light yeast. Clear yellow colour. Big white head, rather short duration. Taste has balance of hoppy bitterness, flavour is a bit stale. Some sweetness with very light malty flavour. Drinkable.

Once again I remain puzzled by high reviews of others and mark this for rerate in future.
