3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dec. ’15. A 0.5 l bottle, fliptop, like on photo. It poured a lightly hazy yellow body with medium to big head atop. Fine aroma of lemon and honey malt. Lightly sweet flavor, honey, sugary with elderflower syrup. The same continued through its medium body with long, dusty and malty finish. Touch of herbal hops only at the very end. Okay, a pleasant one, although it’s not really a pilsener.

At heavy’s, thanks Natko! Poured a golden-yellow body, slightly dull and clear, with a big, lasting white head. Sweet malty aroma, distinctly honeyish, with notes of elder, nice! More of the same in the taste, sweetish, a lot of honey, good honey, some elder mixed with that too. Lacks bitterness, it’s quite, too mild, but still quite nice, definitely drinkable and likable (by beer geek and non beer geek consensus on the table). Definitely recommended!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half Litre bottle, poured into pint shaker. A: Golden, clear, medium head, moderate retention left some lacing. S: Malt, noble hops and a hint of grass. T: Slightly sweet from the malt, hints of grass and charcoal. M: Low to moderate carbonation, light body, smooth enough to go down well. O: A typically drinkable, uncomplex Helles, one to drink rather than spend any great length of time discussing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while and leaves fair to good lacing. Smell and taste malts, lightly grainy, malt bitter. Not a lot to tell, just a decent pilsener. Average to decent body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is sterk bitter en licht zuur. Goed bier, echter iets te krachtig van smaak om een echte topper te zijn.
