    German Leichtbier

    Aroma: Low to medium hop aroma, with a spicy, herbal, or floral character. Low to medium-low grainy-sweet or slightly crackery malt aroma. Clean fermentation profile.

    Appearance: Straw to pale gold in color. Brilliant clarity. Moderate white head with average to below average persistence.

    Flavor: Low to medium grainy-sweet malt flavor initially. Medium hop bitterness. Low to medium hop flavor, with a spicy, herbal, or floral quality. Clean fermentation character, well-lagered. Dry finish with a light malty and hoppy aftertaste.

    Mouthfeel: Light to very light body. Medium to high carbonation. Smooth, well-attenuated.

    Overall Impression: A pale, highly-attenuated, light-bodied German lager with lower alcohol and calories than normalstrength beers. Moderately bitter with noticeable malt and hop flavors, the beer is still interesting to drink.
