3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle as part of Höss’ Xmas 4-pack bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Golden amber colour; One finger head and crumpet white foam which lasts for 1 minute and faded with powder-like remains; Small sticky lacing with active carbonation; Quite fragrant sweet aroma of malt, light honey, bread, dough, light citrus and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of malt, with flashes of cherry tartness, grains, light honey, molasses, biscuits, bread, strong liquorices, lemon and sharp grass; Medium body, thick and slightly oily palate; Mouth feel is rich and thick, with honey and unique sour cherry tinge. Nicely combined and showed strong traits of a Maerzen. Pretty nice! Hoppiness is light honey, citrus and sharp grass in nose and taste. Liquorices and bitterness are strong, combined with grassy hops for a quite nice and lasting finish; Pretty dry after taste, richly sweet and tart to mouth.
Comments: This one is a rather good Helles from the usually average Höss line-ups. Flet head aside, it’s thick and wholesome, full malt with good balance of honey sweet and fruity tartness topped with good bitterness. More like a Maerzen and way better than the wishy-washy Adlerkönig of the same brand, definitely one of my go-to German lager. A cool one!
