UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Thick white head on top of a clear yellow gold body. Smells sweet, like a corn heavy wort was used. It tastes a little bland, but not off putting or unpleasant. A good alternative to macro brewed session beers. SDalkoholic (2434) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 11, 2017
Aluminum can from GO: Poured a carbonated golden liquid with light dust flakes of sediment with minimal foam layer created. Aroma is oat meal and cereal flakes with a dry white wine finish. The cheaper in price and flavor for German imported cans but worth it for the price still. Grumbo (4114) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017

One of those guilty pleasures you sadly purchase from time to time as it is freakin’ cheap in bulk. Drank a lot of Henninger in its home of Frankfurt am Main years ago for the same reason - did the job so to speak. This is a crowd pleasingly thin version of their Dortmunder style Export. Radiant, translucent medium gold with high carbonation lifting up a loose, fluff of white that holds. Sweet honey and cereal-like nose after the initial DMS waft wanes. More dry on the tongue than the aroma gives off. Quite gassy at first, a carbonic acid bite upfront; the body thin and watery. And then it is flat - Didn’t see the transition coming once it warmed slightly. Grainy, peppery, plastic palate with a dry, stale hop finish and length. Medial to low bitterness. Not much here but it does drink easily chilled. Just another macro lager selling for bargain basement prices!!! (50cL can, BB 23/12/17, 1st Choice Liquor) danjs5 (329) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2016
660ml Henninger traditional German Brewing, not alias beer as listed. Very pleasant crisp German lager. Easy drinking and refreshing. Just enough bitterness for a lager to keep the taste fresh. Strangebrewer (1352) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2016
can. Poured clear for with a lasting white head. Sweet malty aroma. Light body, average carbonation, clean mouthfeel. Flavour of cereal malt, light and grainy, bland but non-offensive. Cartoonkhaki (1325) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Clean golden with white head. Grain aroma. Mild sweetness. Decent body. Fairly easy drink that doesn’t stand out from the crowd. BeerAndPonies (175) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
500 ml can from Dunmore Liquor, served in a shaker pint. The can erupted upon opening, losing a good amount of beer to my pants and the floor, and raising a strong vegetal scent. Pours a bright golden hue with a few streams of large-bubbled carbonation and a crackling, milky head that vanishes quickly, leaving a few tiny scraps of lace. Aroma is of wet grain, vegetal and corn, light honey sweetness, and earthy noble hops. Flavor is dry, with (just) tolerable tomatoey vegetal, wet hay and grass, and some doughy maltiness, ending with a soft bitterness and a black pepper note. Watery, and with a clean finish. It’s drinkable, but there are more palatable and satisfying German lagers to pick from.
