COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany

onceblind (10893) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Crystal clear light gold under a thin sticky foamy head. The aroma is like a biscuity macro lager but with a cheeky fruit ester. The fruit ester plays a large role on the flavor with a hefty blonde grain and light golden toast flavor as well. Quaffable and grainy and fruity. Very delicate and nice.
