3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from brewpub. Slightly hazy golden colour, thick soapy frothy white head fades to a loose cap. Pronounced Saaz spice on the nose, hint of sulphur, straw, dry grass. Soft biscuity malts, some lemon freshness, barest hint of caramel sweetness, big dry lager malts, white pepper and a touch of lemon bitterness in a soft dry finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
19/07 On tap at the brewpub as Weener Helles :) It poured hazy yellow body with medium sized head. Crisp lemon hop and hay malty aroma. Weak, a bit sweet bready flavor spiced up with nice herbal hops. Not robust in body, rather light and refreshing with long, slightly bitter finish. Decent helles, but could have been better.

Bottle from Cuso, thanks! Blonde, hazy. Soft floral, perfumed aroma. Full bodied. Malty bready flavor with apricot and citrus. Solid helles!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. 4.7%. From Cuso. Danke schön!
Hazy orangey golden colour with tiny white head.
Grain, malt, yeast, citrus and mild sourness in aroma.
Flavour is very grainy malty with some notes of honey, grassy hops and yeast. Some homebrew touch in this one. Very soft carbonation. Maybe this bottle wasn't the best example of their quality. Maybe it was?

On tap @ brewpub, Vienna, Austria.
Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok on the prelude of the 3rd Wiener Bierfest.
SZÁ: Uramatyám, undorító, savanyú, se helles, se pils. Ezért kár volt maradni.
