3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle looks good, but the cap reminds me of a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty and spicy, quite strong for a helles, a bit sourish. Finish more spicy, a little bit grasy. Quite drinkable and not bad!

On tap at Lindenbrau in Berlin. Pours golden in color with a trim white head. Smells of orange citrus and cream. Tastes of puttered popcorn and chewy caramel. Odd.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Bottle. Pale blonde. Malty flowery aroma and flavor with hints of apple and boiled milk. Clean mouthfeel. Typical Bavarian helles. The emphasis is on drinkablility.
Tap @ Fischerwirt Ruhpolding-Grashof. Pale blonde. Slightly soapy aroma. Malty bready flavor with hints of floral hops lingering on in the aftertaste. Medium bodied at least.
