FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bready with a faint citrus note. The flavor was bready and a touch nutty with hints of lemon, egg white and pepper. Medium length yeasty citrus and pepper finish. Medium body. Fairly basic. Ernest (7697) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain/cracker, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of DMS, linoleum, and detergent.

Seems like maybe some promise lies under the covers, but the clunky/industrial flaws are prominent and difficult to ignore (in both nose and mouth). A drain pour, but at least the brewer’s heart was in the right place. jonas (7586) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle, Wolnzach version. Cloudy, light floaties. Slightly yeasty, grassy nose, fairly restrained. Medium light body, not chewy enough. Pretty unspektacular finish. Needs more character. Idiosynkrasie (7535) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy, milky golden colour with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy aroma with protein accentuation, yeasty and minimally doughy, thereby fresh and airy. Taste is dry, grainy, husky, protein notes, a touch of lemon. A Zwickel as it shall be, reverence evinced. Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2016

Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Aroma: very nice hop profile, pleasant front, hinted meadow herbs, flowers with touch of citrus 7+
Top: smaller yet dense lasting top.
Base: hazy, deep gold.
Palate : sadly a bit thin bodied yet beyond that very nice texture and work on it.
Taste: as in aroma in short – very nice. Refreshing friskier front, light freshness, easy going with softer mellower end. Stared very good, finished as great brew.
other notes world class creation.
Draft at the brewery. This is hazy and golden. A lemon grass and bready aroma. Some grain is tasted with gentle hops with light fruit and flowers. There is a hint of spice. This is subtle and tasty. I love the low ABV. tiong (7305) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015

The flavor has a solid malt base with the Noble hops, skunky yeast and grassy notes. Ends on a mild sweetness. Straw hints. This is exactly as it would taste in Germany. A perfect example of the style.
