2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Gold appearance (as advertised). Mild lemon, woody hops and vague malt aromas; heavier malt flavour balanced with some sweetness and a wet cardboard finish. Ho-hum.

A rather mediocre German lager. Although it is still better than most other lagers from other countries.

I had this beer on tap in Munich and the moment it hit my lips, I knew it was my favourite beer. It’s a fine example of Germain brewing and leaves you satisfied yet wanted more, because it was so delicious. I recommend this beer to everyone. Draft is better than bottle IMHO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, clean golden color, with a big fluffy white head, nice cut hay, honeyed toasted, pale malt nose with a hint of breadyness and nuttiness, and a light fruity note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sweet buttery, toasted, pale malt character with some hints of nuttiness and soft cookie maltiness, with a faint flowery hop leafy accent, leading towards a smooth malty, soft lingering hop bitterness finish.

I’m not a big fan of the Helles. Very carbonated, ample white foamy head, very light gold color. Skunky taste. Probably decent for this type, but it’s not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refreshing german lager. Dry and malty. Grassy and fruity. Noble hops : What you really wish a german blond lager would taste like in a Munich pub.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2010-09-28. Crisp golden yellow body with a small foamy white head that fades. Flavour is mild, light bitterness throughout, mild alcohol touches, muted pale malt sweetness in the middle. Aroma is similar, with a surprisingly prominent amount of alcohol preceding modest dry grass and straw hops, muted pale malt. Average palate. Mostly inoffensive, but this is not a style I love, and this is just an average example of it. Bottle from LCBO, Toronto
