Sdaniel90 (894) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Clear golden with a fiizzy, frothy offwhite head. Grainy aroma of corn and carbonation. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Slight sweetness, with no bitterness. Cereal and corn flavor. I appreciate German lager, but this is practically a macro.

tfredvik (1714) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2015
Slightly hazy and very pale golden body with a white head. Sweet and grainy moderate aroma of pale malts, cereals, newly baked light bread, sweet caramel, fruits and citrus. Moderate flavour of pale malts, cereals, sweet caramel, citrus and light generic fruits in the back. Moderate to light sweet, light bitter. Mid-bodied, moderate carbonation and quite crisp, but still a boring beer.

Cunningham (6898) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Herbal and malty aroma. Ok body and an ok balance. Malty, mild fruity and herbal hoppy flavor. This is mostly a really lovely Czech pils.

Andy_ (1039) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2014
500 ml bottle as "Höss Adler König Das Echte Hell"
White golden clear beer with white head which disappears almost instantly. Aroma has diacetyl, malts, herbs and honey. Flavor is sweet malty with diacetyl. Palate is almost medium full with strong carbonation. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste is very sweet. There’s a lemonadey bulkiness all over this beer. Unrefreshing. Still, thanks dad for a free tick.

Tranquillity (1788) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
0,5 bottle. This is quite nasty stuff. The aroma is flat, but the flavor is like fresh yeast! Nasty...

martjoobolut (2891) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 25, 2014
2L ceramic bottle, shared at koht, thanks! Pours golden with white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, malty and grainy. Flavor follows the nose. Overall: decent clean, but simple brew. An extra point to the overall for the great looking bottle.

Marduk (6141) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2014
2L ceramic bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Looks nice. Malty, sweet, bit dirty aroma. Sweet, grainy taste. Very faint hops. Very easy to drink.

FatPhil (13584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 23, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 2L ceramic flask - thanks random bloke in Koht! (6:3:5:3:10=2.7)
Simple sweetish light grains. Pale, huge peristent white head. Simple light sweetish grains in taste. Smooth palate. Finish softly grainy. Very simple lager, but nicely grainy and bready. Very low in hops.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Simpler, plainer. Still very malty. Has house malt tastes. More like a 2.5-2.6 this time, too simple.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) as "Das Echte Helles" (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Lovely fruity sweet german helles aroma. Nicely fruity sweet body too - great drinkability. But not a tick as a dodgy rebadge, fuck you Hoss!
