500 ML bottle in Germany. A clear golden color with a soft white head. Aroma is very mellow with malty notes. Taste is not as bad as expected. A bit too hoppy for its class but not too bad. A bit weak in taste and the palate too bitter for a Helles, but drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The bottle looks very much like a cheap beer, the beer in the glass is okay. Starts quite hoppy, but a bit artificial-metallically. Finish is still hoppy, a bit dry and hard. Okay for such a cheap beer.
