3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow, clear, thin white head; aroma of malt, hay, grass, bread; first noticeable thing about the flavour is the same lemony character as their helles; this is really sweet, almost sugary; some hops, but sweet malts reign in the finish too; I can imagine this being a good slaker after a long summertime country walk; think I prefer the lightness of the helles though.

Gylden oransjegul med fint hvitt skum. Lett, fruktig aroma av tropisk grapefrukt og sitrus. Fin balanse, men litt tam. God pils, men mangler litt friskhet. (Berlin, 02.04.14)

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottles on several occasions; one-off re-purchase in memory of Hr. Inselkammer, bb 06/2014. Distinctly unpasteurised (sewer) nose with some fresh grains coming through. Fragrant almond malts set the tone for this sweetish Helles with a punch. Well-balanced, silky smooth mouthfeel and shy natural hops making for a pleasant, near-memorable drinking experience.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Gourmondo.de. Clear gold colour, medium fizzy white mostly vanishing head, some lacing. Moderate to heavy malty aroma of grain and bread, light floral hops and a hint of pepper. Taste is initially Moderately sweet and slightly bitter and acidic, turning into a bittersweet finish with a slightly astringent feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Quite a true to the style helles, quite a solid malt body, would’ve preferred a more interesting hop profile attached to it but then it would be a completely different style.
