1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Berliner Bierfestival. Clear, yellow-golden serving, with a white head. Weak nose, with some grain and hay. The flavor has grains all the way, as well as some hops, but I find all of the beer to be boring, weak and uninteresting. Thin body. Disappointing. (070803)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 bottle - Pours yellow with some very fine suspended yeast and a one finger white head. It has a very mild, malt aroma. The flavor is light malt that’s well balanced by a mild hops bite. Light but not particularly watery, it goes down smooth and crisp. It’s not bad, but certainly didn’t impress me either.
On tap recently and my rating came out exactly the same overall, so I’ll leave it as is.

Bottle. Clear medium to light yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, grain, bread, light butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery but also buttery, carbonation is soft.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a straw golden with a respectable white head that minimizes quickly but stays. Aroma is sweet malt and some floral hops. Crisp clean taste of sweet pale malt, some grassiness, and mild almost non-existent hop bitterness. Well balanced; a real summer thirst quencher. Not much to it, but then a helles isn’t supposed to have much going on.

Draught at Gasthaus Isartor in Munich August 29, 2007. Light golden body with a big foamy head. Smeeled a bit sweet of hops, and a touch spicy. A nice full bodied maltiness with noticeable hops. Medium bodied with a slight lingering dry bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
light straw color, a malty smoky smell, which does not find any aequivalent in the taste, the latter being rather watery, with hints of carrots, cauliflower and peppermint, a soury bitter finish ... interesting, but not really to my taste ...
P.S.: I am not sure the style is described correctly, I would rather believe this to be an Export style ..
