2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 12/2012)
Clear golden color, small white head. Slightly unclean buttery, metallic, malty aroma. Light to medium bodied. Earth/cellar, butter, metal, sweet maltyness in the flavor, light musty hops. Unpleasant.

It’s very slightly hazy golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of bread, malt and light flower. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of brad, malt, vegetables, and light fruit. The finish is fairly dry.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, white head. Pale and caramel malty aroma with an ester-like touch, hints of honey and carrot. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet pale and caramel malty. On the edge between Helles and Märzen, lacks power and spicyness - disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50cl from Quack-Duck. A clear yellow beer, nose is grassy and vegetable like. Aroma is watery, light caramel notes, grassy hops, over riped fruit touch on apricot. A bit boring

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, bought @ Edeka Allershausen. Clear golden with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma has bready malts, soft grassy and citric notes. Highish carbonation, fairly light but okay dry mouthfeel. Flavour has chewy malts, grassy bitterness, some sugary notes. A bit boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ansprechend hopfiger Anlauf. Mittelteil tendiert mehr ins Würzige mit süßlichem Einschlag. Abgang würzig-bitter. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, as the 1608, but an ’Exportbier’. Nose with a dusting of malt, light citrus and flowers, pours clear but deep golden with a fizzy white head. Taste emphasizes the sweet floral character and juicy pale malt. Light crispness in the medium body, this is definitely a Helles by taste, and an enjoyable one.

Clear dark golden colour. No head. The flavour is malty, but quite vinous.
