3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 june 2012. Bottle @ home. Blonde. Malty, slightly buttery, soft floral aroma and flavor. Bready. Well balanced. Good helles.
Original rating: august 2006:
Golden color. Strong malty aroma with orange. Malty, doughy flavor with more than touches of soap and orange. Pretty low on hopbitterness, although there is some lingering in the aftertaste. Promising start, mediocre finish. Café Bozner Mittenwald. 6 3 5 2 10 = 2.6

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden, straw yellow coloured beer with a frothy, but weak white head. A light, weak nose, slightly metallic, floral hop. The taste is dry and refreshing, initially wheaty, then the floral, citrus zesty hop flavour. The finish is dry and zesty. (Bottle - purchased from Walmart, Freising, Germany during our recent trip over. Drunk it whilst watching the World Cup semi-final, hoping it may bring luck to the German football team, but didn’t!)

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Taste like German Budweiser, bland, piss water, with a sulfur smell, and aftertaste. This is pretty damn awful!

Malty aroma and taste, but a bit more balanced towards the (aroma)hops than the average Helles.
