3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was told that this was the Pope’s favorite beer (i.e. the only one he drinks) somebody needs to introduce him to something else. Color was a clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, bread, yeast with herbal and earthy elements. Flavor was bready and yeasty with some hops. Better than most of the style, but I couldn’t see myself drinking only this the rest of my life.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2010 50cl bottle; re-rated july, 2010: Clear pale yellow with a disappearing white head. The aroma is primarily sweet, bready pale malts with light grassy and spicy noble hops. The flavour is nice and full, sweet malty with biscuits and delicate resinous and flowery hops in the finish. A hint of green apples. This is honestly one of my favourite beers in the Dortmunder/Helles category.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours bright yellow with a good sized snow white head. The aroma has pale malt, powder and lager yeast. Medium / light body that’s smooth with minor carbonation and crispness on the finish. The flavor starts off with pale malt, smooth lager traits, some hop spice and it seems like something else added, but I can’t put my finger on it. An okay beer.

Pours a light clear golden color. White head that left quickly. Just spotted lacing. Smells of hops, grass, and somewhat sweet. Taste is very refreshing and crisp. Great summer beer. Starts a tad sweet but not too much. Hop bite balances it well. Pretty good beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml, got it in Munchen
Appearance: Pours pale golden, practically clear body texture, carbonation of the body is mild, head is snowy white, frothy, initially big, slowly decreasing to small but very dense and compact, leaving nice lacing.
Aroma: Generally not strong but stronger than previously rated Spaten Munchener Hell. gentle notes of crispy malty base, weak note of dust, whipped cream, slightly spicy, gentle alcoholic background, slightly perfumy but not very freshly oriented, still positive.
Flavour: Front is gentle, kind of refreshing, nice spicy and slightly flowery hoppy touch, gentle malty crispness, nice hoppy bitterness with highly accidic, salty and mineral beer profile, not that refreshing but still strong in taste, finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is highly astringent, moderately alcoholic, slightly spicy, unfortunately not very clean.
