JaKeAFC (605) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2013
50 cl swing top bottle (and that’s a plus). Yellow color, rocky white head, some particles in suspension. Quiet nose. Bready malts, a bit grainy, straw, something like cardboard reminding me of supermarket canned pilseners. Taste is not exciting, minimal malts sweetness then a bland hops balance. Texture tends to be oily, thin bodied, average carbonation. Pretty neat but and easy to drink, but far from a proper Helles, average.

0,5l bottle. Light yellow with white fluffy head. Nose : citrus and bread aromas. Sip : well carbonated with light body. Moderately sweet with delicate dry notes. Light hoppy finish. The beer is a thirst quencher. Nothing exciting.

GoufCustom (883) - HONG KONG - JUL 11, 2013


500 ml flip-top bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Light golden yellow colour; One finger head and white foam which fades in 40 seconds; No lacing with fizzy carbonation;Quite pungent smell of malt,light bread, light citrus and grass; Very low sweet taste of malt, light bread, faint citrus and low straw; Light body, close to watery palate; Mouth feel is a highly carbonated watered down Helles, with low malt taste and low hop character - lowgrassy nose, small amount of citrus and Helles like low bitterness and astringency; Pretty dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: A Helles which borders on macro pales - with watered down body, smell and taste - yet it still retains most of Helles characters, which is amazing. This one is made for pairing with heavy meals like roast pork knuckles and sauerkrauts, as it’s light and able to cool down the roasted meats. As a session beer, this is rather disappointing. Drink this wisely on the right occasion and it’ll work just right for you.
