Beautiful hazy golden body with a nice white head; Very mellow settled well composed elegant malty nose with a slight hop touch; Fresh malty bitter body, balanced with a very present fresh sharp sparkle, the hops could be a little more present; Very long malty bitter fresh with elegant malty aromas. Very nice beer that would be perfect with just a little more hop added.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Really a beer with a wonderful appearence: cloudy golden, with yeast in suspension. The head is big, white and medium persistent. Nice aroma of bready and biscuity malt, with grassy and herbal notes from the hops. Soft mouthfeel, clean flavours of malt, with some fruitiness, and the right amount of hops. Lightly honeish and caramellish. Light to medium body, average carbonation, medium to long aftertaste. Dry with quite light bitterness. A beer that leaves you with the desire to drink more of it. Very elegant and drinkable, perfect for the summer days, I hope to try it on tap one day. The best Helles, I have tasted so far and one of the best German beers I have ever had. A really great beer.
