3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piana dość obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, bielutka. Barwa słomkowożółta, klarowna, delikatny gaz, wydaje się lekko wodniste, brakuje pełni. Aromat lekko estrowy, ale czysty, pilsowy. Koronkuje przyzwoicie. W smaku jest pełne, czuć chmiel, dobra goryczka chmielowa. Piwo szerokie, nie zostawia posmaku, lekkie. Wysycenie średnie.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bubblegum, candied sugar, lemon on the nose. Golden colour with a small white head. The taste starts off cloyingly sweet, to give way to some hoppiness in the finish. Dry, medium body. Pretty average.

500ml bottle from Aldi - Bright yellow body, clear and fizzy, bold white head. As far as lagers go, this is okay, a bit grassy, but it did the job.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Clear lightly pale golden color, medium to full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell and taste malts, lightly hayish, lightly a herbal touch, lightly hops and softly bitter. Decent body and carbontion. Quite nice, one of the better lagers I’ve had lately.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle at home. Pours a nice golden colour, large head that soon disappears. Typical lager aroma of malt and vegetable hop with a peppery nose. Taste: initially sweet with a bitterness quickly following, some fruit and grain. Finish is not a sweet as a helles, but more peppery, dry and leaving one wanting more. Overall, not bad at all. Like some other UK drinkers, I bought this from Aldi with the Dinkelacker Helles (those swing-tops are great for home brew). This is the better beer, in my opinion, due to the spicy bitterness.
