2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and meidum to thin body. Aroma of straw and hops. Taste of mild hops, straw, grains, bread, mild fruits, flowers and light malt. Boring finish. For me this is an absolutely overrated beer. Not that it is that awful but it aint that great.

Ein Helles, das irgendwie dann doch nicht raussticht. Getreidig, mit etwas Butter und einer milden Bitternote. Nichts Besonderes.

Slightly hazy pale yellow with white head. More fizz and slightly more bitter than a normal helles. Nice but nothing too special.

pours hazy pale yellow with a small white cap showing a minimal retention and lacing. honeyed malts - bready but mostly doughy, grass and pepper, crackers, other spices, clean yeast, hint of sweetness, touch of citrus, ginger and sulfur. average to moderate carbonation, light body, relatively dry grassy-herbal-peppery finish. ok.

Blah. Way too watery to be exciting. Good flavor though. Wouldnt recommend paying the premium price for this one.

From bottle. Smell is corn flakes. Not a lot else. Taste is biscuit malts, white peach, rose hips, and of course German yeast. Nice mouthfeel.

Random buy to close out my monthly beer budget. Pours a clear gold with big white head. Scent is grassy with hint of citurs. Flavor is just past mild sweet to start, has an earthy transition phase, and finishes with a light bitter bite. Lively and light medium bodied. Bottle - Sherlocks Wine Merchant - Decatur, GA

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 There seems to be almost two versions of this beer out there. Some taste brewery-fresh, some seem to smack of a winey character. The good ones taste of wonderfully bread like malt, with a very good hop flavor and aroma in support.
The bad ones have an aroma of grape wine, with an odd fragrance of hops that I dont recognize; perhaps it is the wine like aroma fouling things up in the nose. It all comes off almost like the smell of a barn that hasnt been cleaned in a while.
Good body, but the flavor is all wrong. A wine like flavor takes front and center, and what malt is there is overwhelmed by the former problems. Id be inclined to pass this off as a bad bottle, but Ive had this same type of experience with this beer on a number of other occasions. It may be a problem with how the beer is handled in transport, or how it is handled at the distributors, but this beer does not live up to its reputation.
For a beer this price, it is simply not worth it.

Helles olarak değerlendirirsek güzel denebilir,küpüğü bol ve uzun süreli,içtikçe köpük bardakta kalıyor.Ama tadı bana çok hafif ve basit geldi,içtikten sonra damakta çok özel bir tad bırakmıyor.Rengi berrak ve hoş.
