Bottle 500ml. Very nice beer, looks like a golden color and a little head. The aroma is good and flavor is dry, but nice palate. I prefer drink at Hofbrauhaus in München! :) Cerveja muito boa, com uma cor dourada e uma camada certa de espuma. Com um aroma bom e um sabor seco e amargo, mas deixa um gosto bom após uma boa golada. Eu ainda prefiro beber no canecão na própria HofBrauHaus em Munique. :)

I really didn’t like it. Was very very skunked. Not enough hops for me. I would never get it again. Way too sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 12 oz. bottle. Pour is clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma has some inital skunkiness, but this passes quickly to a nice malt aroma with a hint of hops. Taste has a balance of malt, hop and a nice grassy - bitter finish. You need to pour this one with a big head to get the skunk out.

slippery slidey and slight astringent finish. weak barleygrain taste. and this from the tap! malty earth flavors that are one dimensional. kinda veggie taste (i hate that) but not offensive. there’s a balance of sweetness to smooth it out.

Yet another beer that is probably great in its home country that is just mediocre in America from a bottle. Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has light grapes, some skunk and smooth pale malt. Medium / light body with lots of sharp carbonation. That is sharp and astringent malt with some graissiness. The finish has light spice, grain and light spiciness. Fair beer at best. I will only rerate if I can get a bottle direct from the box or if I can get it in Germany.

Bottle. Lager Glass. Pale light yellow pour with soft white head. Smelling of noble hop resin, honey and bread, the aroma is probably the most pleasant part of this lager. Medium body that leaves a lingering starchy/yeasty flavor and film in the mouth. Flavor is subtle and light. Notes of apple, dough and hops are present. Basic and drinkable.

On tap. Dry, toasty, bready. Supremely quaffable. Well balanced, slight hops and a good amount of character. A great session beer, no doubt. Pretty much exactly what I’m looking for in a helles.
