kappldav123 (6016) - GERMANY - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle looks good, also a nice cap. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty-dry, a bit metallically. Finish grasy-moldy, notes of butter cookies. Okay.

Bottle. Clear golden yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of bready/doughy pils malt, herbs and honey. Flavor is malty without being sweet, dough and yeast with some light hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean finish. Great, clean, easy drinking Helles.

#207 Gelungene Optik im Glas mit mittlerer Kohlensure. Der Antrunk ist erfrischend trotz der immerhin 5,2% Alk. berhaupt kommt es eher mild daher, aber das kann im nchsten Moment auch umschlagen. Ein Wechselspiel aus mildem Malz und feinherber Hopfigkeit. Mild, ohne zu s zu sein. Wohldosierte Hopfenbeigabe. Ein auergewhnlich gutes bayerisches Hell, dass auf Understatement macht. Mit jedem Schluck kommen weitere Geschmacksnuancen hervor! Schliee mich Suffkopp mit seinem Fazit an, denn es trifft genau zu: "leichtes und doch so komplexes Bier" :-)) Das Motiv des Etiketts, die Ettaler Klosterbrauerei, ist ja ok, aber die silbergraue Farbe hnelt an ein dt. Billigbier aus Gotha. Das ist aber auch der einzige Kritikpunkt. Test vom 18.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,12,10,12 - 11,90

jb (3067) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Delicate and tasty. Pale with a soapy head. German hops in the nose, a bit of a light pils feel all the way around. Grassy, clean, some body. Pretty good.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is just a tad sweet with a typical lager smell. Feels creamy, which I found surprising. Tastes like a lager. Meh.

Borresteijn (6644) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2012
50cl Bottle via trade, thanks Bierkoning! ABV 5.0%. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is malty sweet, bread, cake, light spicy grassy hops. Flavour is nice smooth and malty, soft bitter grassy finish. Simple and straightforward, but really nice and smooth. Light-bodied, soft oily mouthfeel.

Pale golden, quite stable white head; grassy-grainy nose, light bodied, light bitter flavour; short dryish bitter-sweet finish.
