3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. This one is a million miles away from being a Helles. Hops all the way from nose to the end. Well, it is not that powerfully hopped as an IPA but it has a huge aroma and aftertaste of it. Best it: the end is not that bitter and we have a very quaffy beer here. Thumbs up !

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle looks very simple but good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts mild but not washy. Mild spicy, more and more wheaty. Finish with mild sourish notes. Well balanced and quite drinkable. A good one!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Die Flasche ist schlicht und elegant zugleich, gelungen. Das Bier hat erst exportartige Merkmale nach Malz und Getreide. Der Abgang ist für mich dann enttäuschend wäßrig und die Hopfenherbe zu dumpf geraten.
Danke an quack-duck für die milde Gabe ;)

330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger (testparti). ABV is 5.4%. Pale golden colour, large white head. Fresh aroma of German hops, floral and herbal notes. Crisp and herbal flavour of German hops, with a very moderate malty sweetness in the background. Highly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 24.06.12. Very bright, happily citric and grassy nose, pours and unclouded golden with a fizzy white head. Taste is juicy and quenching, only somewhat sweet and feels well-attenuated, there’s good hop bite for a Helles (with perceptible bitterness, which is always nice) and just enough from the simple malt for a fine balance. Light-medium body with a few sheets to shift through and a nice, bright malty finish and a flash of alcohol under the floral layer. A winner.
