Draft at The Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear golden colour with a thick fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops and lager malt. Sweet melon and apricot flavours with bready notes. Crisp finish with dry grains and some banana essence. Good example of style.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall brown bottle 50 cl, bought at Otto Duborg in Harrislee Flensburg Deutschland.
Fully foam, typical "deutscher Bier". Leaves some patterns inside the flute.
Nice warm bright yellow colour, and big bubbles hanging inside my flute.
Fruity aroma with some cinnamon, maybe honey.
Taste starts with distinct hops, herbs, and then malts and bread, some orange,
some dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is really alright. Very tasteful, with a wide range without water-taste.
Aftertaste lasts about average, with a round bitterness, that is good.
This beer is a good companion to pasta, pelmenis, china dinner.

Clear light yellow body and a small white creamy head. Aroma of hay, bread, yeast and grass. The taste is well balanced medium sweet and bitter and has a long light bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and a soft carbonation. Nice.

A bit sweet overall, lots of sweet bready malt. It is clear and semi effervescent but not one of my favs form Andechs.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from some beer store in Gräfelfing. Pours a crystal clear, straw-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is somewhat grainy with a lightly sweetened pils malt, a decent hay note, and a light fruity hint. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened pils malts with some grain, a light breadiness, a light hay note throughout, and a few fruity hints. Finishes dry, clean, and somewhat bitter before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. LIght body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a pretty solid Helles. Clean and easy drinking with no off-flavors. Not bad.
