The beers 100th rating! 50 cl bottle brought to me by my friend who lives in Scotland. Nose is grassy hops, sweet malt, and light yeasty notes. Clear yellow with a big white head. Flavor is lightly bitter, lightly sweet, with a slight pepperiness and a tiny hint of cloves. Bif (2246) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle- Pours a light golden color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness, some grain and has a bit of citrus in the background. tatse of a mild malt sweetness, with some fresh grain. Has a mild bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. has a decent balance. Nothing fancy but a nice relaxing beer that goes down easy. Better that most of the macro lagers.

330ml bottle- Not a bad pale lager. A bit maltier than most, but still a nice refreshing lager. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2012
Pours a dull yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malt with hints of grass. Taste is also malty with hints of grass and distant cardboard leading to a malty and lightly bitter finish. Pretty underwhelming. MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle from supermarket. Quite a pale yellow with fluffy white head. A crisp, clean and refreshing german lager.

Brown 50cl bottle, well in date. The first of my German Beer Reviewing Evening on 20th Feb 2009..
Poured into my Budweiser Budvar 0.2 litre stemmed tulip tasting glass (3 times).
Clear golden yellow, fairly pale and bright looking. A large white head sat on top of each pour, sadly the heads all fell away as I drank down each beer, leaving a small collar and some good lacing.
A very slight floral aroma, but not enough to get excited about, otherwise there was no smell, just like most lagers/helles/pilsners.
Dry and refreshing, sharp and crisp. No huge flavours to talk about, but a good example of a German light lager/pilsner.
No great body or depth, just a pleasant lager, easy to drink. The 5.3% is just about detectable. My third glass was taken with some vintage Stilton and dry biscuits, they complimented each other very well.
Now to have some water to clean out the mouth before my next German review.

bottle from morrisons. probably the best beer there. you can’t beat bavarian beers, even in the bottle. must find the draught Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with heavy carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Not overly exciting. ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
5.3% gold colour with a thin head, no aroma that I could detect, sweet lager taste.
