Floral aroma as others have stated. Pours clear, golden color. Not very much flavor but certainly drinkable.

inbirraveritas (1322) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 18, 2013
Bottled. Pours a clear golden with a medium sized white head on its top. Smell of fruits. Aroma is also fruity with biscuits, dough and gently hints of grassy hops in the background. Lemony and sweetbitter finish escorted by mild hops again.

Beerenberger (1563) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2012
A sweet floral aroma dominates. A hazy golden pour with a none lasting white head and no lacing. Tastes of sweet malts with a mild hoppy finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. To me, the taste was, overall, rather bland. Its a very drinkable beer, but nothing here to write home about.resin,

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Golden with a White head. Slighlty thin bodied but the hop presence makes up for it. Citrus and grass. Bitter finish. Refreshing.

Blairgus (3076) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
8 oct 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet lager malt with some caramel and faint bitter finish. Thin body and very fizzy. Smell was very sweet but taste is rather even. Lager malt, light caramel, and crisp, bitter finish. Nice enough for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (3551) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a crisp white head of foam. The aroma is faint, sweet pilsener malt with just a touched of grainy grassy bitterness detected in the finish. Taste is faintly sweet and grainy with a nice yeasty note towards the end.

Enjoyit (3573) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Golden of color with a white head. An aroma of sweet malt, weak hops, roasted flour and pancakes. A flavor of old hops, weak sweet and a awful grainy finish.

Cerveja bem forte e bem amarga. Mas muito boa. Aroma forte. Recomendo. Bem diferente das brasileiras.

Clear golden with a frothy clean white head and streaks of lace. This is one of those wonderful thrist quenchers. Starts with caramel malt and a hard to ID spice that, together, grows as it moves through the palate. There is light bittering at the finish to ease things back into line. Super session beer (and at an eye-popping 4.6%!). Recommended.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a creamy head that lingers a bit. Grainy, bread like aroma along with lots of sweet malt. Taste is light sweetness, lots of grain and malt. Very tasty, smooth, and a little creamy. This beer seems to be a little under rated to me. This is a perfect example of a classic pilsener. Maybe its not hoppy enough for people?
