3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rather hazy with an unusually full body for a Hell. Only mild carbonation and generally quite gentle. I don’t recall any distinct aroma but very, very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 vom Fass in a Bierprobe. This one is awesome, not much diacetyl but rather a big hoppy note reminiscent of American Helles beers. It isn’t the best in the style, but it is a unique take for a German brewer.

(draught) pours a clear yellow colour with a frothy white head. surprising aroma of peppery spices with strong herbal-hoppy overtones, almost like a saison, with a light pale malty base. flavour is the same, again quite spicy, with some notes of grain and a light herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Did not know I could ask for a sampler but I drank them anyway. It was very nice to drink, refreshing and not so graspy as other lagers. I like the hell style because it’s a little sweet.

Almost no aroma; cloudy yellow color. This is excellent as well. Crisp hop bite at the start. Smooth finish. Tasty.

Cycled into town (Bamberg) from our campsite just outside at Bug 16-06-10 had this on tap at the brewpub Ambrausianum Pours almost lemony in colour but tricky to be certain in the poor light of the pub. Soft in the mouth with vanilla and cream, slight sharpness to the finish, clean nose but not so hoppy. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2
