2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a light lager body with the brief cameo appearance of a head, lasting about 3 seconds. Nose is pale malts and some dry hops, kinda faint. Taste is silky smooth pale malts, backed by a sweet, corn-like aftertaste and some pretty neutral noble hops. Slick mouthfeel, typical of the style. A pretty OK German Helles beer on the sweet side of the scale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet malty aroma with not a small amount of green apple. Crystal clear gold under a spread of white bubbles and a thin ring. Intriguingly sour base malt flavour that does not seem to come from infection, very crisp with a medium bitterness that comes in late to hug the tongue. Light body, medium carbonation. Unusual and refreshing.
