330ml bottle as "Pinkus Original". Clear pale yellow color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Malty, some acidic hops, some grains in aroma. Grainy, acidic hops, herbal in taste. Sourish grains and herbal hops in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. I like the hop thing. But this ain’t altbier. No way. Zlotta (3808) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 0.33 l bottle, best before August 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly grassy-spicy aroma of grains and some straw. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter, medium grassy-spicy and maybe minimally sourish taste of grains, straw and traces of lemon, followed by a short, moderately bitter, just minimally tart and slightly grassy-spicy finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Easily drinkable, refreshing, nothing special though. Same rating as last time.Benzai (16681) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016

Thx! you for sharing Hamirubi. 500 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG V. BBF 11.2015. Pale citrus golden, little white head. Nose is dull sweet grain, sugar, lightly metallic, sugar. Taste is bland sugar, stale metallic, big soap, white sugar. Bland & metallic. Not a fan, pretty poor & age probably didn’t help either. RobBestwick (963) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016

Clear golden color with a foamy mid-size white head.
Dry grainy malt and paper dryness in the aroma.
Grassy hops and dry grainy malt in the flavor. A bit unpleasant.

üller. Pours clear golden with tall fading white head. Aroma is light malt, straw and dusty hints. Taste is light malty and quite bitter with a dusty taste of straw. Finish is bitter.
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 (4069) - 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 (1573) - Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2016
