UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 1/2 liter bottle. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of crisp, pale malt aroma, paired with grassy hop aroma. The palate is solid and clean, with excellent, crisp, pale malt flavor, on a round, smooth body. This beer finishes with excellent pale malt flavor up front, and is balanced to perfection with grassy hop bitterness that lingers. Outstanding helles, with sublime balance. I could inhale this beer by the liter. A great beer to match with classic German fare as well. I’ll be drinking much more of this one.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 0.9oz bottle into a into a mug. The label has no freshness date or abv.

Appearance: It has a bright, deep golden color with great clarity and nice active carbonation that helps support the head. Its head builds up tall, light and fluffy from an aggressive pour. This quickly settles to a thin covering that holds on well. Lacing is spotty and slick.

Smell: The nose has a light pale maltiness with a touch of raw grain and a light bready sweetness. This is balanced by a nice crisp floral/spicy hop character.

Taste/Palate: It starts with a good pale malt base that also brings some mild bready and caramel sweetness. This is backed up with firm floral/earthy/spicy character that balances the malt. The palate is medium bodied, crisp and well carbonated.

Notes: This is a great all-around drinking beer. It’s nicely balanced and wonderfully drinkable.

500ml bottle. Crystal clear gold with a big white head. Sweet, light caramel nose, light grass and grain. Flavor is bready, a solid floral tone, sweet and grainy. Light finish. Excellent carbonation - millions of bubbles rocket to the top of my glass ata amazing speed. A solid drinker, underrated IMO.

Draft pour. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is doughy and grassy. Great cracker crisp to the beer. Finishes a bit sweet and dry. Lighter body and medium carbonation.

Well, this isn’t my favorite kind of beer style, so it only gets a seven overall, but this was a dandy grab. Golden color with some straw hay brown hues. Large head on the pour and it stuck around for a while. Appearance would have been higher if there was better lacing. The aroma was bready and of grass. The flavor was strong grassy Saaz hops with sweet biscuit and bread notes underneath, keeping this one short of a pilsner in character.
