Ernest (6354) - 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.

(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 (2179) - 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.

Moravius (607) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2014
Vom Faß in der altmodischen Brauereigaststätte an einem ruhigen Vormittag im September 2013. Ein paar ältere Herren unterhalten sich mit gedämpfter Stimme oder lesen Zeitung. Es ist so ruhig wie in einem guten Café. Diese Franken sind wirklich ein angenehmer Menschenschlag ... - Das bestellte Bier schimmert goldgelb. Der Antrunk ist schlank, ausreichend gehopft, nicht süß. Leicht grasiger Hopfen. Schwach rezent. Mittlerer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ein grundehrliches, enorm süffiges, harmonisches Bier ohne besonders hervorstechende Aromen.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Clear gold thin white head. it’s fine. Malty yes. Hoppy yes. Wheat cereal flavour. Intense. Good. In all circumstances it’s a good beer. But I know that the Landbier is just down the road. Solid beer. Good cereal flavour good hops.

rauchbierlover (617) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Gold body with a nice foamy white head. Herbal aroma. Taste is malty, bready. Dry, slightly hoppy finish. A very good one

Christian (11282) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2013
Golden with a lasting white head. Clean malty and herbal aroma, very inviting. Sweetish malty flavour with herbal hops and a refreshing, hoppy finish

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 Draught at Witzgall in Schlammersdorf, Nov 2012: Lustrous golden. Creamy and pasty white crown of foam. Pleasant nose of honeysuckle, lilac, pepper, lemon, minerals, fresh baguette Pils malt, new-mown hay, and a fleeting glimpse of fruitiness and lager yeast. Soft body. Stiff and tight carbonation. Firm hop bite trails a succulent kiss of malt and a well-defined flourish of toasted bread. Quite zippy with a strong mineral dimension accompanying the tightly structured malt base. Ample peppery zing exudes beneath the soothing Spalt-drenched nectars. Obscure lemon verbena herbalness adds intricacy to the refined hoppiness. Malt is sublimely clean and flawless within the lean frame. Squeaky clean, yet lip-smacking at the same time. Finishes crisply toasty with edgy baguette notions paired with appetizing dabs of vibrant flowery softness and a poignant yet teasing pepper aspect. A thoroughly enjoyable and dangerously quaffable helles (finished my 8 oz. pour within five minutes) that does everything flawlessly as it toes the line with extraordinary finesse and delicateness. I would feel blessed to have the fortune of drinking this liquid gold every single day. Good heavens is this clean!
