2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden beer with medium and white head. Aroma is malty, some sweetness, wheatfield, pure and fresh aroma. Taste is malty, some honey and slightly grassy bitterness. Aftertaste dries nicely, even the hoppyness is mild, not even hint of hardness or musty nuancees. Medium bodied, smooth to drink. The honestly malty, pure and enjoyable smooth beer, this kind of lager I like to enjoy.

Bottle from Alko. Golden color, white head. Smooth, almost sweet taste with a bit of citrus, malts and bread. Drinkable, yet it offers nothing special in the category of mass produced lagers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 16.04.2013
Aroma is rather grassy with hops and some grainy malt. Flavour is sweetish with grainy malt, some grassy hops and hints of butter. Quite typical Helles with some extra hops. Or then I just don’t get my Helleses as fresh as this one was.
