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.

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.
