3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden and clear colour with white head. Aroma and taste of hops, light roasted malt with a sweet note. Some ’Oktoberfest-ish’ mouthfeel and notes a bit more hoppy than other helles i´ve tried. Softer carbonation than Gold and Pilsener.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Classical Helles which comes very crispy with some spicy taste. Aroma of hay, bit grains and some sweets. Nice one. Not a rocket. But a nice one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear Mediums golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of mild hops. Taste of hops, ripe grains, light honey, grass, dragonfruit and malt. Easy to drink and surprisingly not bitter at all since Flensburger tends to brew quite bitter and metallic beers.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a little white head that fades too quickly for my liking. Virtually no aroma. The taste is quite malty and swet with a pleasant mouthfeel. Not hoppy at all when compared to Flensburger’s usual line. The alcohol is well hidden, but there’s nothing special about this beer that would make it a 125 years anniversary brew. Might be a good drink in the summer when it’s hot outside but overall disappointing.
