3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours golden with white head. Not my favorite Helles, but eminently drinkable w/malt and grassiness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a white head. Soft, malty nose. Medium body with lightly sweet malt and some cardboard notes. Ends on a weird sourish note that doesn’t feel quite right. 221206

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draught at The Old Monk, Westminster. Bright golden colour, with insistent carbonation. Mainly grainy, bready malt in the aroma. Not much hop presence in the flavour - just a hint of grassiness. Distinctly sweet on the palate and without sufficient bite to prevent this becoming flabby. Not too impressed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. I don’t know, i kinda liked it, but thats not saying much after some pretty bad helles beers before it. This was malty, with a light sweetness, some nice breadyness, with touches of grassy hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got this one bottled at the Binny’s Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois. Light yellow pour with a thick, white head. Wonderfully sweet aroma with bread and some lemongrass. Doesn’t look like much but it has an outstanding flavor, lightly citrusy and sweet. Finishes very clean. Excellent.
