3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, what a snootful of wort-like malt you get from this lager! A lot of freshly baked biscuits, some wet grass, and a slight hit of floral hops. Gold and near headless, this is very smooth in the mouth. The flavor is a slightly weaker version of the aroma, still satisfying, with a swelling of malty sweetness in the finish, followed by a touch of earthy hop bitterness. Very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This lager pours a yellow gold color from a 500ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with strong lacing. Aroma is a little malty, slightly herbal and sweet. A medium bodied lager. Malts are bready and sweet. Hops are citrusy and floral. A touch harsh tasting with a hint of cardboard. Mild carbonation. Crisp and clean. Light and sharp. Drinkable, but there is nothing to distinguish this beer from the 1000’s of other lagers out there. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hazed golden color with a moderate off-white head. Dry malt and dough aromas with a hint of herbal hops and touch of lemongrass. Smooth, with enough eff to keep it interesting. Lightly toasted malt with some dry herbal hops. The bottle is a touch dated, but this held up well. I would wager a fresh sample would bump this up 3 to 4 tenths.

Bottle by 02.02.2013. Grassy and dusty nose reminds of a recent Zoigl. Pale yellow with a rocky bright white head. Very light body. Faint citrus and malt, faint grass, faint everything.

(Draught at St. Urho’s on 2008-05-08) Pale and clear. White medium head. Quite fruity and bit hoppy nose. A little bit fizzy palate. Malty and somewhat hoppy taste. Very German beer. Surprisingly strong body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe (website). Nice creamy white head, and a slightly cloudy demeanour, otherwise standard lager fare. A rich sweet aroma - obviously lagery. Nice stuff, smooth and citrus to start, quite sweet, with a slight raising of dryness towards the end. A quick crust of bitter, then a long sweet finish. Not complex in the grand scheme, but good for a lager bier, and well balanced and entertaining.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Looks exactly like I’d want it to - clear bright golden yellow with a nice white head fading to a ring. Big hoppy aroma, grassy and grainy. The flavor is solid for the style if not too exciting. Sweet pale malt and grassy hops, fairly bitter and slightly sweet. Medium in body for the style with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. A respectable helles lager in all.

a bit of green apple on the nose, this one, to me at least, is another run of the mill lager.
