Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2013
Thanks to Gaute for sharing a 500ml swing-top bottle. As Adlerkönig Das Echte Hell, 4.7 % abv. Creamy white head leaving dotted spots behind. Clear golden body. Mild noble hops and pale malts on the nose. Sheer fruity hops to the flavour profile added by a grainy touch leading to a moderate dry, fruity ending. Clean on the swallow. Satisfying Helles (Tromsø 10.11.2013).

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Labelled "Adlerkönig Das Echte Hell", abv 4.7, 50 cl bottle with swingtop. White head on pale golden body. Fruity hoppy scents. Tastes mostly malt, then hops, grains, and a very clean feel. Easy drinkable. Ends with bread and sweet malts. RateMeetWRune/FuneralFeast4TromsoIL-2013

jlhooker (26) - Dublin, Ireland, IRELAND - NOV 8, 2013
500ml flip-top. Pours light gold with short lasting white head. Little aroma. Light consistency with medium carbonation. Little to taste. Dry finish. Not much to it. Maybe do as an initial thirst quencher but very bland.

troull88 (68) - GREECE - OCT 10, 2013
Grain aroma, nothing special here. Pours clear white-yellow with minimum white head. Tastes light sour and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin and carbonation lively. Finish is abrupt. Overall, I didn’t enjoy this beer as I found it rather water-ish with too much carbonation.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2013
It’s golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of grain, flower, light malt and fruit. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of grain, straw, malt, flower and the finish is slightly dry.
