2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Deep golden colour, not much head. Aroma is hops, grain, some caramel and other strange sweet notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same along with some mild diacetylic notes

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light dull copper. Has a bland butter/caramel aroma. Light caramel taste, a bit sweet in the finish. Not really all that worthwhile to begin with and the diacetyl doesn’t help.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewery. Coppery-gold with thick, lasting white head. Sweet, slightly metallic aroma has a hint of diacetyl. The slick mouthfeel also signals diacetyl, which I taste too but is in controlled portions. Actually the beer grows on me. Hop character comes out as it warms.

Draught at brewery.
A very nice helles from Fässla. Tried a small glass first so I could taste many and ended up going back to this one for a larger serving. It was clearly their best beer and a very well made helles at that.

Golden colour with low head. Very soli beer with ultra clean aroma and flavour. Solid maltiness and a noticable hop backup. Soft mouthfeel with low Co2.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Fassla, Bamberg. Yellow gold with white head. Strong vanilla, buttery flavours dominated this beer, carbonated and tinny, quite a mess really, certainly disappointing in this wonderful brewpub.
