500ml bottle from an off license in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Pours a nondescript Helles colour. Not quite sure why it doesn’t spell Hell as Helles. Has a mildly sweet malt taste with a light body and grassy elements. Pretty average, pretty boring.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale yellow color. Fast fading head. Slightly malty aroma with minor flower/herbal notes. The initial flavor is very mild, even a bit watery. Some moderate maltiness. The flavor strengthens towards the finish. Finishes with dryish and pleasantly bitter hoppy notes. Tasty but not too special. A bit different from the mass-produced lagers. (0,5 l bottle, best before 5.2.2014, poured in a Schott-Zwiesel Brussel -glass.)
