Mariusz (12303) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2012
Beautiful deep yellow color, with little foaming. The smell is hoppy. The beer starts hoppy fresh and slightly grainy, with a subtle sweetness in the background. Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2012
Tap @ Kodu. Pale yellow color. Small white head, lasts forever. Malty, grassy aroma. Malty, grassy, mint in flavor. Smooth to drink. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle by 11.2012. Very grassy nose, lightly dusty. Pours clear yellow with a sudsy off-white head. Taste is very juicy, good noble hop presence with low and lightly metallic bitterness, no citrus but the pale malt makes up for it (this is like a highly hoppy Helles). Sweetish start but dries out, light body is soft. jfb (6984) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear pale yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of floral hops and citrus fruits, very fragrant, with a hint of pale malts, straw and white chocolate. flavour is mostly the same, floral hops and a hint of lime, slightly barnyardy, with notes of straw and an assertive bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation. surprisingly good. beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Tap. Clear, pale yellow color. Thin foamy white head, but stuck around for a while in the glass. Floral nose with hints of grain. Bitter crisp palate. Flavors are balanced in herby and citrus hops. Clean bitter finish. Nice clean carbonation.

Tap - average size thick head, pale straw color, crisp balanced aroma and flavor BlackHaddock (7957) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
The regular 500ml bottle, best before Jan 2012, poured into two Veltins badged stemmed tulip glasses during Oct 2011.
The review was also taken with a Spaten Munchner Hell (a blind tasting, not knowing until afterwards which was which).
Lighter than the Hell and slightly more bitter, it is a typical German Pilsner and has nothing to put it above most of them: it’s clean, crisp and clear just like all the rest.
Mr average in every aspect when compared to its rivals. Tmoney99 (15126) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Moderate grass balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.
