3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 11/12, this from the ’11 vintage, and the first beer I’ve had with a QR code on the label. Big citrus nose, light grapefruit with tropical notes, quite juicy. Light yellow body with a touch of golden and a creamy white head. Taste is barely bitter and a little bland, citrus fruit rind and a touch of chalk, but otherwise straight-ahead malt. Thin, clean medium body, smooth but ultimately a disappointment.
*Old rating. Best before 11.2012. Jahrgang 2011. Smooth and fresh, nice floral and round. A bit grainy, moderate bitter, nice. Beerhunter111 (23281) - Beerland, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014

Bottle. Hazy bronze, big fluffy lace. Lemongrass, leaves and orangepeel in the aroma. Nice round and flavorfull hop profile on a chewy, light fruity sweet malt base. Lemongrass and kiwi finish. Sparkly mouthfeel. Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
33cl bottle, pick up while visiting Bierzwerg bottle shop, pours with a nearly clear deep gold body that supports a two inch tall off white head and leaving behind some sheet lacing. The modest aroma offers up some smooth soft sweet clean malts and light lime to lemon grass notes and faint earthy grassiness. The taste starts with malt sweetened lemon and lime rolling into a bit of floral hop and pilsner like malts. Very nice hop forward Pils that stays far from overly sweet and floral which fits my taste. Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from McTapps, shared with MiP - thank you, Sabine! Pours cloudy yellow with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with notes of flowers and mild touches of citrus. Bitter flavour of hops with pronounced flowery notes. Bitter finish. Nice.

Bottle, 4.9%. Weak flowery aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Very big stable creamy white head. The flavour is citric with a mild but slightly tannic bitterness. High carbonation. The bitterness seems a little bretty, but tastes all right for now. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
Very nice floral hops. Some classic Germany hops too, but a good nasal grassy and some citric aroma. Interesting. Taste is not quite American bitter, but rather pilsner bitter. Leaves a bit of a dry bitter ending. For a pilsner it’s definitely hopped allright. Fun experiment and very drinkable but very bitter in ending, which makes it not very complex. Very nice drink overall, though. (33cl bottle from Wasana’s Getränken Oase) hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle 0.33l from Edeka Mohr Bonn. Pours golden with white head and relatively high carbonation. Aroma is fruity with a good hint of hops. Taste is malt, some mandarine and a good bitterness. I really like this beer. Very good balanced and so easily drinkable. Perfect beer for this hot summer evening. KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Golden beer, slightly hazy. Orange and apple aroma, rich fruity palate. Mild, a hint of yeast, dry finish. A little gem. ekstedt (7013) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2013
