3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled - Clear golden colour, small white head. Nice floral, grassy hop aromas, some malty sweetness. Light, crisp body, lively carbonation, bitter finish. I think this amount of bitterness is too much for a helles, its not harsh at all, but i’d rather call it a german pilsner. Not bad, better than the average.

Geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig, niet typisch Helles, meer Pilsener. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Altmünster’s foam is nice and it has a lovely caramelized rounded taste of malt. Rich fact is most marked by an aggressive hops, as it is difficult to lay down further. Many German lagers are brewed with the tasty Saaz hops, which is mild and slightly floral, but in this lager the hops is somewhat disjointed and messy. Still, it is a tasty lager which is easily assimilated by the Danish green Tuborg.

500ml fliptop (Kaufland, Olpe)
Fucking fucker’s fliptop popped between shop and hotel. Shame, this is one of the best beers I found in Olpe. Bold fresh bitter and herbal hoppy aroma, slightly citrussy bite. Pale, and frothy head. Slightly papery bitter taste. But clearly packed full of beer ingredients. Grainy, a hint of husks, some oatmeal biscuits. Good bitter bite, resins stay on the tongue. With all the malts and hops, this is quite full in the palate, and is pleasantly carbonated. Well brewed lager, nicely attenuated. I’d have called this a pilsner, the attenuation and hopping are so high.

Aroma:l ight sweetish aroma, faint fruitiness and light grassy hoppyness.
Taste: moderate sweet, quite bitter for it’s style, grains, malts with some spicey notes in a mild herbal hoppy finish.

A bit borring but ok beer. Expected a German Pilsner like beer with more herbal hop bitterness,, which is what it is.
