Bottle at a tasting in Uppsala, July 2012. Thanks SaintMatty.
Almost clear golden with a medium white head. This was not that sweet. Bread, malt, some notes of metal and very light notes of hops. Drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Zabka, Handsworth. This is surely a Helles; for it has all of the prevalent bready sweetness. Nice unfiltered flavour, doesn’t suffer from warmth. Quite drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, froman ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Sweet fruit caramel dominant in the nose with a slight fruity hop note, developing into Horlicks and honey. Very soft and quite sweet in the mouth with more caramel maltiness, honey and a slight flowery hoppiness emerging although the Horlicks disappears. Brief sweet finish becoming slightly hoppy and bitter

The head is ok, the body light and clear. It smells malty, hoppy, a bit metal. The taste is malty, bitter, flowery, fruity, aromatic. A bit boring.
