3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml on tap (Holzfass) in Aying. Aroma is light apple, sweet-ish, light yeast, light pineapple, wheat - very rich for a Helles. Appearance is pale golden with a fine white head. Taste is light sweet and just a little sour. Some bitterness in the end. Very balanced mouth feel. Light and very fine, creamy feeling after a sip. Soft carbonation and long lasting after taste. This is a superb Helles - and very different from a Holzfass than from a bottle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught@Pullman Bar, Helsinki) Clear golden color with a smallish, tight head. Mildly malty aroma with distinctive asparagus and cooked vegetables, plus some grassy hops. Asparagus also dominates the slightly metallic, buttery and sweetish-alcoholic-honeyish flavor. Slicky-sugary, not very carbonated, medium-bodied palate. Quite refreshing bock with reasonably hidden alcohol. Still warming.
