Bottled (from beerangel.de). Golden colour with small white bubbly head. Aroma is bready and grassy along with some slight notes of parfume. Flavour is grass, saltwater, some sweet malts and the finish is quite hayish. Refreshing, but not that exciting.

Bamberg Bash, Day 1. Train bottle swig. Lightly hazy pale gold beer. Tidy ivory coloured head. Palate is light and softish and semi dry. Smooth dry pale malt. Slight lemon tang provides interest. Light spice before a light and semi dry finish. A tasty little number.

fiulijn (19577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
Draught at Weihenstephaner Brustberl, as Original Hell
Pale blond color with compact head, persistent. Mild but nice aroma of malt. The mouthfeel is light, it has a light flavor of malt, nice nevertheless, although missing some crispness, and light paper feeling; correct bitterness; the final is dry.
Simple, although it has some interesting points. Better the aroma than the final.
