3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden colour, clear, initial large rocky head faded quickly without leaving much lacing. S: Tangy Munich malts and noble hops. T: Honey on toast, hint of sharpnesses, nice balance without huge depth. M: Light body, crisp, some bite from the carbonation. O: A beer to drink rather than one to spend hours talking about, trading for or discussing online. Good for what it is, but as someone who has sampled numerous "Helles" I don’t think I’ll keep this one in memory.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Jodlerwirt, Munich. Pours light golden and clear with thick white head. Almost no malt smell and no hop smell. Tasted a little harsh and with almost no malt taste compared to the good helles. I did not like it at all. Of the premium helles, this is at the bottom.
