500 ml bottle into pint glass, 09010N6 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, white bread, pepper, light lemon/pear, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, pepper, light lemon/pear, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very good beer. This did not resemble an Altbier style at all; but was nearly spot on to a German Pilsner or Kolsch style. Very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; and was very enjoyable as such. Spab (3791) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
500 ml bottle from the Bishop’s Cellar. Pours a clear golden colour with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is sweetish bready grains and straw. Flavour is modestly sweet bready malt with some dry straw character. Average body. Fine but forgettable. MBlessing (1296) - Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2016
Helles goldgelb schöner schaum, getreidiger leicht süsslich er duft, Geschmack malzig grasig wenig herb Alphadelic (2235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2016
A very sweet and bready brew, lots of green grainy flavor. The carbonation is tight and fizzy. I’m not the biggest fan of this. That unripe, green and grassy flavor is a little off putting. It’s fine but I won’t buy it again. martjoobolut (4234) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle (from biomarket). Pours golden with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, grainy, malty with some vegetables. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grains, malt, some vegetables, slight fruitiness and some metallic notes (which disappear after it warms up). Finish has slight dry bitterness with graininess and malt. Carbonation is high. Overall: different than my previous (limited) experiences with this style, this is very pale lagerish. Still, it’s not that bad, I can session this.

Good, clear beer. Head diminishes fast. Nice bite, herbal(?), metallic but tasty mouthfeel. Not a beer to drink all evening, but one can drink it almost every evening. exeter (533) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
This beer is cloudy gold colour with a big white head and nice lacing. It’s a dry hoppy beer with breadiness and ends with a lingering bitterness. I’d have it again. DrNosha (2287) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - APR 1, 2016
0,5l Flasche. Hellgelbes klares und glänzendes Bier mit luftigem weissem Schaum. Es riecht recht streng. Getreide, Hefe, Gras, Alkohol. Mit etwas modriger Note. Geschmack ist getreidig und herb im Abgang. Ich bin etwas ratlos. Das Bier hat mit einem klassischen Alt nichts zu tun. Ist eher ein getreidiges Pils. Mir schmeckt es leider nicht.
