Draught at Berlin Bierfestival. Low fluffy quickly disappearing white head. Clear golden body. Lovely malt grass bread hay aroma. Fairly high carbonated malt grass straw flavor with a nice hops bitterness. Long dry and bitter finish. Cuso (8940) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from trade with McTapps, many thanks Sabine. Pale golden color with thick persistent white head. Sweet malty aroma with some sourish notes. Sweet malty taste, with fruity notes. Light hoppy bitter finish. ciocanelu (3000) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 500 ml bottle, poured into Weizen glass. hawanna (3375) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Head is large and foamy but dissipates quickly and leaves only some scattered lace.
Aroma is dominated by malt. Taste is also malty at first, a bit fruity in the middle and the hops hits you last. Leaves a pleasant, slightly bitter aftertaste.
Body feels light to medium. Carbonation is medium.
Average beer. Not bad but neither impressive.

subcombicio (203) - Marghera, ITALY - DEC 14, 2013
Bevibile ma niente di più !! Una classica bassa fermentazione con un gusto che presto abbandona la bocca. Per niente cattiva cmq.. troppo sempilce.. non da fare la fila per berla ecco !! TAR (2794) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 From tap at both the keller and brewery as well as fresh bottles over the past several years: Clear polished golden. Creamy halo of tight foam holds nicely. Soft and muted but attractive nose of haylike pils malt, flower nectar, fennel seed, and lemon. Some hoppy "greenness", as well. Firm carbonation. Bracingly mineralic and dryly malty, initially, with a soothing splash of floral hop juices. Very elegant and soft hop character is accompanied by slick melon flavors which harmonize with the lilac- and honeysuckle-tinged hops. Bright herbalness and a lemony twang combine to quench and uplift as the weightless pils malt looms gracefully in the background. Finishes with a pleasing scratch of minerals and soft noble hop whispers which vivify the bouncy fresh-hay notes. A fairly straightforward example that’s not very singular in character, but it’s quite clean. This beer is another head-scratcher in terms of its consistency, or lack thereof. After spending a lot of time in Franconia, one eventually realizes that there tends to be significant variance from tap to bottle. Such is the case with this beer, although the most positive experience was at the Rittmayer keller in Kreuzberg during May, 2013 (reflected in my score here). *Shrug.* kappldav123 (6135) - GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Had this as Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Handgranate. Bottle looks a bit hippie, but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, malty, quite sourish-moldy with some strange grasy-buttery notes. Mild finish, but still with moldy notes. Not my favourite. culchiem (4179) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2013
Draught at BBF2013.Served in a stone Krug so no idea what it looks like. Aroma is grainy malt. Flavour is sweet malt, slight bitter fruit on a nice mellow bitter finish. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. This is an excellent Helles which I wish was easier to come by stateside.
