FatPhil (14130) - 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 (763) - 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 (262) - 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.

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!

I drank this after my first all-grain brewday. Good thirst quencher. Little bit sweet. Did I smell scent of honey?

TEJA (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Prisma, Kovoula, Finland. Short off White head. Small sparkling in a clear pale yellow beer. Aroma from pilsner malt. Light malty taste with a small body and low bitterness. A beer without any mayyor faults and without and nothing to stand out. A good refresher after a day out in the sun.

Reid (2338) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2014
500ml bottle as seen in the pic. liked the artwork. Bought from Lamb’s Thriftway in Wilsonville OR. $4.59 Pours a clear golden colour with an initially large frothy white head. That fades down fast but leaves OK lace. Ok biscuity,malty aromas. Some sweet floral hop and a touch of dough. Not that bad really. Smooth malty semi-sweet taste..leaves a tinge of the hop in the last of the gulp. KInda weak compared even to the aroma. Its OK in the mouth.. bout average for style. OK drink, not the best but I can drink this.

0,5l swing top bottle (as Adler König Echte Hell) from K-Market Jätkäsaari. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is sweet grainy malts. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy malts with a slightly hoppy finish. Pretty drinkable.
