2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma. Taste is almost neutral grainy, grassy, strawy, almost metallic like snow in the "finish". Boring, doesn’t evoke appetite for more.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of weak grassy hops, wet paper and some buttery notes. Flavour of grassy hops, weak bready malts, subtle sweetness and some weak herbal notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Smooth malty finish with some bitterness. Quite an average Helles.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Tap at the Brauhaus - 29/04/12.
Slightly clouded yellow to gold with a thin white head.
Malt and wheat on the nose .
Malt and a little spice also present in the taste allied to background hops.
Medium bodied soft carbonation. A good notch or two higher than the standard helles which I’d drunk previously.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap in Freising. Cloudy yellow-golden with a rocky cream head. Creamy malty nose, taste is only lightly sweet, not much malt but enough citrus. Simple with a watery, soft body, but it’s getting extra points from me today on account of the suddenly hot weather. Very faint hops, this is essentially a Zwickl.
