3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
Honeyed malts are pricked by herbal hops and bubbles in this well-rounded, faultless Helles.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam skirts the dark golden (darker than their Pils, for example).
-Malts tend to offer more flavor in this one.
-Drinkability is quite high due to leanness and soft flavor intensity.
-The mouthfeel is well polished. This feels professional.
On tap at the brewery gasthof.

I found a humorous in Bamberg that when I asked for a Helles they actually asked pils, lager, or weizen. This one is a solid Lager.

500 mL draught at Fassla in Bamberg. Darkish blond with lots of head at the start, but it soon disappears. Smells of malt, and a little of pilsner. Distinctive long tankard. Its alright, a plain lager, but it least it was a local brew.

A little bit dark golden, perhaps just a slight red color. Not very interesting smell, mostly yeasty. Really good with nice mouth feeling. Taste is sweet and there is something sour. Aroma is mostly earthy, leather and some roast with malts.
