50cl bottle from C-Market, Vantaa. Poured clear golden with a white head. Aroma has strong grainy notes, as well as some sweetness. Flavor is similar, grain, sweet malt, slightly dry and some harshness/vegetable notes in finish that I found disturbing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle under the alias of Kaiserdom Urtyp Hell. Pours golden with gentle bubbles which continue for as long as it takes to drink it. There’s very little head.
The nose has pale malt and some grassy aromas. The taste has a big lemon note with a cleaning lemongrass note on the end. Palate is light bodied with a slightly bigger middle section, in other words a good texture and a bone dry clean finish,
Overall, just what you want in a helles
