3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle. Pours a solid golden color with medium head. Aroma is relatively weak with malts and wheat present. Taste is pretty straight forward - light sweetness with some floral tones. The beer is medium-bodied with a finishing that has a slight hop bite fading into sweet. Decent representative of the style.

50 cl flaske med patent prop. Gylden og let diset øl med et lille hvidt hoved. Lidt sødlig smag, men alligevel en anelse bitterhed, med en tør afslutning. D-B-20,00

I like this beer, but the color is nothing special and the aroma is almost non-existant. The taste is hay, honey, bread, grass, its a complex mix of flavors. Its not amazing but it is really easy to drink and it makes light beers in the U.S. look and taste like water, its a light beer with a mustache. Still pretty good overall.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours clear golden with a nice looking white head, which stays. Aroma is malty with some farmhouse notes to it. Taste is light sweet with some fruity and floral notes. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied. Clean and fresh. Dries up towards the end. Not a beer to remember, but good though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden light, almost slight haze, thick head of very fine bubbles. Aroma is of some dry dusty grain, rich melanoidins, a light toffee, and trace amounts of sulfur. Medium body, good carbonation. With requisite noble aromas and proper bitterness level. A rather unremarkable Helles Bock, could use a little more malt. Again, slight sulfur dominates initial sip.

Bottle. It’s a slightly hazy, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. Grainy nose with hints of caramel and some oxidation. The flavor is sweet and grainy, with some fruity sweetness blending in. Grainy and fruity-sweet finish. Medium body. Quite nice... sort of. 091223
