Andy_ (1032) - 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.

0,5 bottle. This is quite nasty stuff. The aroma is flat, but the flavor is like fresh yeast! Nasty...

martjoobolut (2725) - 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 (5848) - 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 (13051) - 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!

Praticamente una cosa appena bevibile, perchè oltre al dolciastro non è neanche di grande beva...

BitchPls (726) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Golden, clear beer with a white foam. Sweet, malty lager aroma. Medium bodied. Nice, sweet malty flavor. Soft carbonation. I like this. Not complex or interesting but nice to drink after a hot sauna.

Mainuh_man (259) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours clear, very light pale with a rocky white head. Clean lager aromas: grass, cereal grain, resiny hops. Light sweetness at beginning with some hints of honey and light grain, finishing with mild, herby hop flavors. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, not much complexity to this beer, and on the sweeter side for a hell, but pleasant enough to drink.

panzerwolf (250) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Pours pale golden with little head. A little bit sweet, medium bitterness and a taste of hops. A good drinking beer for sure, nothing special, but refreshing.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from a Trinkgut store in Idstein, Hesse, Germany!
Pours golden yellow with fine white head. Smells malty-grainy, slight sweet. Starts full-bodied malty, sweetish grainy with slight floral hops. Middle part has pale malt notes as well as spicy and floral hops. Goes into a spicy-malty finish with some spicy and flowery hop notes. Solid german Lager brew!
