3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5L swing-top, MHD 29.09.2011. Nose is lightly sweet malt with dust and a mild whiff of grass. Clear light golden pour with carbonation at a standstill and a frothy, rocky white head. Taste is rich, gaudy malt, sweet and undular. Very low bitterness and resolution to citrus rather than grain or bread. Medium body is creamy and soft, smooth and pretty clean. Light but very pleasant spicy notes (yeast?) and just a hint of cellar. A tad on the sweet side, but color me refreshed!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of bread and butter (in an OK way) and flower. The flavor is light to moderate sweet with notes of butterscotch, bread, flower and the finish is fairly dry.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, shared by KnutAlbert. A low blond head, over a clear pale gold colored body. Sweetish grainy malt aroma with fruit notes and a whiff of hay and straw. Light to medium, sourish-sweet malt body. Grainy, straw/husk flavored. Mildly hopped. Grain and sugary fruit notes in the finish. An unusual Helles, not very moreish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small white head. Paleish yellow body. Light fruity mealy aroma with bananaish notes. Weird. Dry-sweet oily perfumy strawy taste with light banana notes. Mid-bodied. Mealy mouthfeel. Dryish grassy mealy sugary aftertaste with perfumy notes. Not really very good, and very strange. (0.5l bottle shared by KnutAlbert.)
