Bouteille. 5.1%. Couleur paille, claire comme de l'eau, mousse blanche. Arômes de grains, pain frais et houblon. En bouche, crale, houblon floral et une amertume légère mais présente qui termine le tout. C'est frais et bon.

Bright, grassy, pale cereals, very refreshing, light and super quaffable. Nice example of the style. A well made bare bones lager is a beautiful thing.

My favorite German beer of all time. So crisp, bready, and delicious all in one. If you enjoy American lagers, you will have a slightly different feel about this beer, but I do truly love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Jun 2008

A nice clear and bright yellow gold colour with a 2 finger head of foam. It looks like the foam isn't going anywhere in a hurry. Nice.
Ok, halfway through the session, the foam shrunk to just a ring around the glass and that surprised me. Oh well.

I like the smell....plenty of notes of sweet malt, biscuit, and a nice nose of some citrus hops.

The taste follows the nose nicely. Biscuit flavour is there in abundance along with a citric hop kick that gives it some good balance and it finishes with more of the same. Very tasty and very easy to drink.

I used to drink this a lot back in the 70s when I lived in California and I'm pleased to say, it's still a damn good Lager. Could I session on it? You betchya!

NB: la mia valutazione si basa sullo stile della birra. Rispetto ad una pilsner, come ad esempio la urquell, ha più corpo ma comunque resta leggero. Il sapore di questa birra mi conferisce sensazioni particolari, nello specifico mi ricorda il fieno, la paglia e il manto erboso. Il colore della birra è giallo paglierino e si presenta pulita con una schiuma non spessa. La schiuma tende dopo un po a scomparire e questa è una pecca perché esteticamente rovina la birra. Il punto di forza di questa birra è il suo equilibrio grandioso, perché i sapori sono equilibrati. L'amaro finale si sente ed è combinato bene con il corpo. Per me è un'alternativa alla pilsner, è una birra per chi vuole assaporare sia il corpo che l'amaro finale.
