2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours clear, nice golden brown with smooth white head and little carbonation. Neutral aroma with light notes of malt. Taste is sophisticated, calculated malts with hoppy notes. A bit flat and sticky, metallic aftertaste. Above average helles but needs more depth and character. Over-engineered and boring, just like an old Mercedes-Benz.
