2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy, lovely golden body with an off white head. Pretty much no aroma, maybe some light huskiness? Hay & eggs? Crappy light beety taste. The mouthfeel is nice, mind you, but there’s not much to it overall and I’m quite sure that all four of us who were there considered it to be by far the worst of the bunch.

Draught at Altstadthof.
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a STRONG note of butter/diacetyl, light note of soured fruit.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
An absolute butter bomb. Horrible.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
Sweetish bready malts and herbal hops play around an engaging fluffy mouthfeel for a pleasant session lager.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A clinging veil of foam can be seen even when the beer reaches the bottom of the krug.
-Apart from the fact this was served in a ceramic krug, this tasted and felt like a Kellerbier all the way. Good job!
-The malt profile is not as sophisticated or clearly defined as some of the best Helles I’ve had, but its rusticity is endearing.
-Herbal hops produce lenient bitterness.
-I felt like having a second pint of this Helles, which is exactly the point, right?.
On tap at the brewpub.

500 mL in a pot tankard at Altstadthof Hausbrauerei in Nurnberg. Fairly liquid head, looked quite dark but that was probably the effect of the tankard. Tastes more roasted than a normal helles. I was pretty indifferent to this.
