3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Light grainy aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Maltsweet but not too sweet, light bitter, clean, refreshing, Deutsche Gründlichkeit. But not to get excited about.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wow, quite an easy drinker! Very smooth, not full of flavor, but good. Abit malty, flowery. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light straw, sparkling, with lots of bubbles. Little head. Nose of malts, grass, and hops. Flavor is crisp, refreshing well-balanced blend of untoasted malts and noble hops. Good example of a Helles. Clean, light and slightly citrusy-tart, with a blended flavor that is very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle) Big white head that disspates to a minimal coating atop a crystal clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, some caramel, light honey, minimal bitterness. Taste is the same as the aroma. Watery light-medium body, quite drinkable. Nails the style quite well -- would make a superb lawnmower beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle: Sweet honeyed malt aroma with some dry forest stuff floatin’ around, smooth and creamy with requisite drying on the palate, appatizingly fresh taste that brings you back. Just a tad rich but not really a problem, it’s a "premium average" beer if you get my drift...

(Bottle 50 cl) Pale golden with a fine but collapsing head. Nice, full, malty body with a surprisingly - for Bavaria that is - high bitterness. Decent but not really anything spectacular. 250101
