1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap at the brewery. exactly the same as every other new generation german brewpub helles - pretty pale with a faint white head, faint vanilla aroma, vague bitterness and some plain flour. i can’t believe anyone in bamberg actually goes to this place. during the 2006 world cup they seemed keen to stand out from the crowd by advertising themselves as wm-frei but all that achieved was to make the place as empty as it deserves to be for brewing stuff like this

Sample draught at the brewpub. A lightlly cloudy pale yelllow beer with a white foam. the aroma is malty and overall inviting, but the flavour is weaker than expected, malty with some floral hops. Average

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow color, big creamy white head, nice lacing. Fruity aroma with notes of honey and grapes. Malty, medium-bodied, touch of fruityness. Finish and aftertaste are hoppy bitterish. Clean brewpub-product (in a good way) and solid example of "Helles"-style.

On tap @ the brewery. Aroma of hops and citrus. Hazy, yellow coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is slightly sweet with some more bitterness in the finish. A bit sour as well due to the citrus taste in it. Herbal hops in it. Bit sharp.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught. High withe creamy and lasting head. Hazy light yellow body. I guess I should write wak barley malt aroma but actually I could not smell anything. Weak and fruity barley malt flavor with low hops bitterness, short aftertaste but a good deal of carbonation. What a disappointment.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. A hazy yellow beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet citrusy with a light touch of malt. The flavor is sweet with a slightly acidic note of citrus combining with notes of grain, but also yeast - hasn’t it been lagered for long enough? The finish is dry and bitter. It bites slightly in the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 Bottle: Very light golden color, white head. Aroma of grain, malt, grassy hops. Flavor is also malty/grainy with a good hop biterness, mainly grassy and light herbal notes. Good but more a pils in my opinion.

Draught@Ambräusianum, Bamberg. Quite a hazy helles, showing some citrus and melon fruit flavours, and a typically lightly grassy, mild finish. A bit light in the end, but not too bad.
