2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
very pale yellow color. little carbonation. Not much smell. Odd taste, long lasting backend, but banana flavor isn’t appealing. ok for the german style, but not good overall.

0.4 Litre, served in handled mug. Very pale straw colour, clear, two finger head, kept a lid of foam on top, also had some lacing. S: Not overly pronounced, but a bit of subtle orangy Bavarian malt. T: Hint of sharpness added to the south Bavarian malts, notes of orange. M: Minimal carbonation, light body, went down OK. O: More export than Helles, very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light flower aroma and golden straw color. Hop bitterness comes through, but doesn’t overpower the malt. Easy to drink on an early Autumn day.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with a thick foamy white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is mild and has very light grass and a mild minerally note. Flavor is very balanced between mild straw and slightly spicy/grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium / full and the finish is dry and crisp with lingering hoppiness. Very crisp, clean, refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5L bottle. Pours clear pale with a frothy white head with minimal lacing. Clean malt aromas dominate, grass and cereal grains. Fairly strong sulfur also coming through, as well as herby hops. Mild cereal grain sweetness at the beginning, giving way to herby hop flavor, which morphs into a long, herbby hop linger. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a nice helles lager with good grain and hop character. A beer to keep around for when guests come!
