2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 4.9%. Clear yellow colour, small unstable white head. The flavour is slightly sweet. The mouthfeel is quite full, as if there are minerals in the beer. Dusty flavour, quite subtle. Low bitterness. Clean, but not exciting.

Draught@brewery tap, Freising
Pale yellow color, small white head. Grassy, papery aroma. Citrus hoppy, slightly herbal and sweet flavor. Light palate, not very malty, but kind of refreshing with those citric notes.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good, whipped eggwhite head with a yellowish colour over metallic golden beer. Bit of ureum and a lot of sulphur... H²S... Fortunately this proves quite volatile, leaving an equally stunning nose of roasted chicken meat... I can nearly smell the heavy paper bag it came in. Taste gives an, again, sulphur tainted grassy flavour. At least the chicken’s wandered off... It is a peculiar taste. Pale malts present, finish is a bit citrussy. Quite refreshing, despite all remarks, very light body. Well... after some time it seems to revert to a (normal) beer. Still, it remained a bit unsettling.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (with the best regards to joss!) Straw golden coloured, lively carbonation, firm, creamy white head; fruity-grainy nose with a delicate hoppy touch; mild sweet-bitter flavour, rather light bodied; short hoppy-fruity finish. Decent Helles !

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!)

Taste like German Budweiser, bland, piss water, with a sulfur smell, and aftertaste. This is pretty damn awful!
