Pale appearance. First impressions were that this was pretty insipid but after a while a pleasant mouthfeel developed.Some maltiness and a gentle bitterness appeared.More subtle than I thought at first.Worth a try.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in golden with medium head. Nice slightly malty in the nose. Bit sweetish in the taste and extremely refreshing. Great one.

Ahhhhh! Fa caldo e vuoi bere. Entri in un beershop e ti ritrovi una helles... che fai? La prendi mi pare ovvio. Mi ci sono buttato sopra come fa un cane in calore sopra una cagna. Aroma floreale a tratti fruttato (citrico addirittura) e di malto. Struttura acquosa, beverina e rinfrescante. Fa il suo lavoro (di bevanda rigenerante nelle calde giornate di sole) dannatamente bene. Prosit!!

It’s golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, bread, flower and a touch of straw, and the finish is slightly dry. It’s a lovely helles!!!

Mittelgelb, feinporiger Schaum. Sehr blumig-florales Malzaroma. Weiches Brauwasser, solide Malzbasis mit Aromahopfen im letzten Drittel. Sehr süffig, erfrischend und rund. Sehr gut, allerdings fehlt es an Würze und Tiefgang, um an die Referenz-Klasse ran zu reichen.

Bottle. Golden colour with steady white head; visibly highly carbonated. Grassy aroma with some fruit, some hops. Nice malty taste, some sweetness and a lightly bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good lager.

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!
