GoufCustom (949) - HONG KONG - OCT 4, 2014

500ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Pale dull golden honey colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with active and small carbonation; Sweet aroma of malt, with floral, cookies, sugar, strong bread, yeast, lemon and strong grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with fairly light barley grains, strong molasses, strong herbs, bread, strong lemon, liquorices, moderate bitter hops and sharp grass; Light body. Thin but quite slick palate; Mouth feel is full-on, very fresh Helles - thin maltyness but with sweet sticky molasses, strong floral and herbal hops compensate the rather light bread. Seems thin at first but fresh herbal-flowery all the way. Really nice!... Hoppiness is strong lemon, floral and strong sharp herbal grass in nose and taste. Moderate bitterness mixes well with glassy herbs for a lasting, mid-astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Refreshing and herbal hoppy to mouth.

Comments: Its thin maltyness is only a minor distraction: the body has good malty backbone, with nice cookie sweetness, strong fresh floral and herbs, and sharp and smart hops to round thins up. Nice and very refreshing. Need to say more?

Good beer at the beginning. Used to drink it often. After moving to belgium for some time and coming back, it appears very "taste-free", very watery, find litte aroma. But good remains good beer for light diners.

bhensonb (11908) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Prenzlerberg. Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma seems herbal. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is hoppy/bready. Hop seems more fruity than noble. Hop conquers bread, but barely. Decent.

Nocturne (970) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Keg at The Font, Chorlton. Slightly hazy gold with a thin white head. Honey is a big factor initially. Leafy hops too. Sparkling carbonation and medium body. Adhered well to my mind’s understanding of this style. Glad I managed to find this on tap rather than bottle, because it seemed in good form.

Ottima lager.. leggera e gustosa.. si sentono i luppoli e non aggredisce il palato. Ottima nel suo genere.
