Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Gravity cask at redlight redlight. This is a very light golden lager. It isn’t all that complex but it is very refreshing especially in Florida where it is late October and still 90+ degrees outside. Seriously, I hate the weather here.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 19, 2009
tapped at City Beer. Nice cloudy yellow color with a quickly dissipating head. Grainy notes, with apple flavors, and some hrbs and bitter hops in the finish. Nice.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
Ceramic mug. Rich herbal aroma is spicy with complex malt toastiness and fresh hop. Farmhouse...rustic character with minerals, earth and dry herbal hopping. Quality and balance. Delicious example. Re-samples at Tapas Bar have backed this up.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Draft, in Krug, nice thin but tight white head. Nice light golden color. Smells very fresh of grain, sweet and husky. Low carbonation. Flavors are smooth, husky, dry, woody, cedar, apple, apple skin, and good metals.

jfb (3680) - GERMANY - MAR 2, 2009
(draught, at Café Abseits, Bamberg) pours a lightly hazy deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of buttered pale malts, honey, light floral hops and some characteristic diacetyl. flavour is the same, with lots of grain and light herbal hoppy qualities. medium body with smooth carbonation and a light bitter finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2009
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy dark golden colour with a rich and rocky white foam. Fresh and really crisp and aromatic aroma of elegant mellow grassy hops, white bread, biscuits and minerals. Medium-bodied with notes of white bread, fresh grassy hops, nuts and minerals. Long aromatic and fresh grassy aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 2011-02-13, draught at Café Abseits, Bamberg, 7-3-6-3-13=32
Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Delicate but nice malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, sweetish malt flavor, with decent hopping. In good conditions and refreshing.

2009-02-12, Bayerische Anstich at Akkurat, Stockholm, 8-4-7-5-16=40
Hazy blond color; big head. Wonderful aroma of hops and malt, pure Pilsener. Excellent malt flavor and good hopping, but less impressive than the aroma, light traces of herbal hops, missing the ending freshness and kick that I find sometimes in my reference Pilsner (Tipopils). Excellent!

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Dickinsonbeer loves this stuff. Beautiful head. Extremely clean and crisp, with squash and German hops. Extremely easy drinking, a mild vegetalness in the malts complements the very fresh hop finish. Awesome.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil - I had many german beers at this Spuyten event, and it became very clear to me that the better a german beer is, the more ineffable its greatness is - this is the case here - it is superbly balanced, and incredibly smooth, yet crisp - a lot of grassy bitterness tempered by perfect, balancing sweet malt complexities that never burden the tongue - so amazingly flavorful, yet easy to drink - I want to drink this all day, every day - I totally realize that this rating is incredibly uninformative, but I don’t even care - my notes pretty much say that it is indescribably good - it stood out on a day where we had a lot of stand out german lagers - that says a lot
