3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer in the glass is a very pale yellow, slightly turbid with a flat head. The smell is yeasty hoppy, very fresh. Starts well done recent, wedge-like acidity and also pleasantly yeasty. The yeasty-fruity tone takes over the course more and more in volume. The aftertaste is fruity fermented concise and well-spicy. Right at the finish, the beer gets a big hop push, what completes the whole thing quite well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in a trade with shrubber85, shared with ogivlado. Poured a murky yellow colour with a medium white head that went away at a medium pace, Nice and so was the nose, grainy and hoppy, herbal, honeyish, dry, carrying some notes of vegetables, quite German overall. The taste was mild and malty, slightly sweetish and grainy, with some sharp carbonation bite mingling in there. Some herbal salty hop too, weak honey. Dunno, very balanced, slightly light, probably even better more fresh. Far from the greatness I had once expected out of it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle in Germany from shrubber85. An off gold color with lots of carbs coming forth and a nice white head. Aroma is hay and grass. Has a sweet mellow and very solid taste for a Helles which I think that is might be.

Bottle. Sour milk malt and lemon peel aroma. Hazy pale yellow with large white head and moderate effervescence. Light bitter lemon peel and mild barley malt flavor. Light palate. Good but not great - malt flavor too subdued.
