ganache (5903) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Swing-top bottle. Sweet, lemon and chalk nose, there’s a really pleasant floral and ländlich aspect to the yeast, a little hard for me to get at, but it reminds me more of Zwickl and Landbier. Pours a sickly brown-golden with a dense, creamy and lacing bright white head. Taste is almost sickly sweet and herbal, again pushing toward vegetal character, chalky and slightly grainy water and malt, some yeast. Dusty, husky, and mealy, with a character somewhere between liquified old library book pages and the rotted-out glue that once bound them. Crisp light-medium body, does refresh but is sure to raise the eyebrows. Hartung32 (252) - Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Don't really like it; but it was worth trying for the price. The hops are severely lacking and it comes across more like a wheat beer.

Clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly musty, very mild hops. Flavor is clean with a slight funk in the aftertaste. Somewhat bitter finish. Not bad. blipp (9278) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours light gold with a fluffy white head. Light grainy and clean, lighter floral notes, and low bitterness. Not bad. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Large streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with spicy hops, grass and straw countered by bready yeast, light fruit and pale malt. Some sticky pine needle followed by some apple, pear and pilsner malt.
Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malts into a dry finish. A decent amount of dry, earthy bitterness that dominates the flavor. Hints of grass and straw countered by some light fruit, bread, biscuit and pilsner malt. There’s a subtle metallic presence that lingers after the finish hurting the drinkability a bit. A bit hopper than expected but pretty standard.

Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of metal, soap, DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic.
Starts out on the right foot with a sizable head, but alas, you can’t judge a book by its cover. Grainy, metallic, soapy notes detract from the hop nose, so it ends up smelling pretty industrial. Not much better in the mouth...bland with a husky and metallic aftertaste. Poor. Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2012
Was Fredl Fesl da geritten hat? Keine Ahnung. Dieses "Premium Pils" ist unterirdisch schlecht! Es schäumt nur mäßig auf, das Aroma ist nichtssagend und dann dieser Antrunk: Scheußlich nach Brot und mehlig im Abgang...Nein, das ist nie und nimmer ein Pilsener, bin mir noch nicht mal sicher, ob dies ein veritables Bier ist!???

nice malty aroma. golden and clear in appearance with a nice foamy head. taste is smooth and refreshing, slightly malty. envane (570) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Hazy yellow with a white head. Butter aroma (uh-oh) and hay. Taste is sweet malt and diacetyl with light hop and butter finish. First butter bomb I’ve had from Germany. Its drinkable but this shouldn’t happen. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2012
500 ml swing cap bottle. Poured a hazy gold body with a fuller dense off white tight foamy head that leaves gobs of lace up and down my DFH goblet. Aroma sadly isn’t that great, notes of wet bran flakes, old raisins, dough, bad grapes, walnut and date oatmeal. Medium bodied with very soft to almost nonexistant carbonation, sweet aftertaste. Flavor is on the sweet malty side with notes of dates, bad raisins, old dough, stamp glue, figs. Meh.....not something I would buy again, and I paid to see Star Wars The Phantom Menace twice.
