Nose was simple and acidic. Little head. Flavors of malt, grains, and some light sour fruit. Smooth finish. Not a bad beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2007
On tap at Papagos: Pours to a mostly clear pale straw colored body with a medium white head that sticks for about 1/4 of the time it takes me to drink the beer. The aroma shows some light bread, bread dough, light biscuit, pale grains, alongside a very subtle light fruity malt, a bit of feathery & light earthy/floral hops. I dive into my first sip with anticipation. Like the aroma, the taste is subtle and not overwhelming, but its in no way lacking in complexity or depth of flavors. Theres some full(though not assertive) pale malt, grains, bread dough, light earthy biscuit, bits of pale malt sweetness surface from time that keep the palate interested. Theres also some mild floral hop flavors, though not much bitterness or assertiveness coming from the hops, and theres an almost hidden fruit quality that seems to come from qualities of both malt and hops. Light bodied, medium carbonated (by no means overly so), finishes with a lightly sweet pale malt flavors, though its fairly dry overall. This really is a top notch exemplar of the style and one of my favorites.

Golden, 2-finger white head. Pale malt, lemongrass and floral hops make up the aroma. Flavor on par. Nice mild sweet malt front, with earthy/grassy hop finish. Soft billowy mouthfeel. Of course ther is nothing in your face about this beer, just a very clean, well balanced brew.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a pale straw gold, very lightly hazed, and topped by an inch of quickly disipating white foam. No head retention, no lacing. Mild bready malt aroma. So far no big deal. But then... But then I sip it. Oh yeah, this is good stuff. Subtle and smooth, but still pretty flavorful, this beer has a little sweet toffee malt and a mild frutiness that compliment each other very nicely. Behind that, there is an herbal hoppiness. Almost medium bodied, great carbonation, satisfying but not heavy in the slightest. Clean, but not crisp - not dry at all. Tasty stuff.

glider (57) - Shrub Oak, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Flavorless. Decent mouthfeel. A sad example of German brew. Reminded me of cold tonic/medicine. Wont be drinking this again.

rayg1 (593) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Pours a clean clear looking light yellow with a small white bubbly head. Smells of straw and light honey with some weak floral notes and maybe a bit of funk. Taste is VERY light even more so than the nose which was fairly faint itself. Picking up some wheat flavors with a small bit of floral sweetness. This would be refreshing on a summer day. Still, If I were to go this light on a beer I would chose a good pils over this.

tcfishler (65) - USA - DEC 28, 2006
Almost clear light yellow-gold. Good-sized, very persistent and sticky white head, with lots of lacing. Aromas are surprisingly low-toned, with toast, ripe fruit, and spice. Carbonation is high but exquisitely fine, lending a more substantial mouthfeel to this otherwise light-bodied brew. Flavors are light and more restrained than the nose, leaning towards the sweet side of the spectrum. Outstanding - however, the sweetness means this is not the best option for a refreshing, quaffing lager.

POD (198) - USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden color. White bubbly head with little to no aroma. Mild sweet beer flavor with lingering tart malt aftertaste. I drank it ice cold and it quenched my thirst. Not bad. Id drink it again it it was free.

AskForJenny (1082) - Ontario, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2006
12oz - Pale straw colored liquid supporting thick white head. Bloom of hops upon pour. Apples and hops on nose. malt fading to waaaay too sweet a finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, corn and citrus. The flavor is weak citrus, sweet malts, with a thin palate. Not their best brew by far, but rather inoffensive.
