3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At first, looked like a normal macro swill, but the color is a very nice golden yellow with a frothy impressive head.Smells dry, metallic and of grasses. Has Pilsener written all over it.Beer goes down extremely smooth, quite impressed with the almost creamy mouth feel. Just the right amount of carbonation. Though, a tiny bit of funky bitter prevents the perfect 5 for palate.A pretty balanced, yet simplistic taste profile. Sweet, but not too sweet. Almost fruity and another reviewer mentioned cereal and I can see that - I do pick up some grain. An underrated beer.

500ml bottle. Aroma is bread, slightly plastic-ish. Appearance is pale yellow with a light white head. Taste is light sour and light bitter. A medium carbonation, very light dryness. Overall a boring but ok-ish Helles.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazed, medium gold with a soapy white head.
Aroma is grain, a little berry.
Taste is sweet grain malt, honey, lightly fruited.
Not bad at first, but the sweetness gets to be a little off-putting.

Grainy malty aroma with dryness and mild fruity sweetness. The flavour is dry grainy malty with cardboard and mild notes of metal. Quite simple German Lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
meh... I think I was expecting more from a helles style. It was fine, other reviews posted here will do it more justice than I care to try and provide. Essentially a nice pilsner with a scoche more character and body.

The head is medium, the color blond-golden. It smells sweet, hoppy, a bit fruity, hoppy-young. The taste is a bit fruity, stale, malty. Interesting but not nice. 7/7/7/7/7/7

Bottled as Passauer Helles Premium: Golden color, white head. Aroma is malty and grainy with grassy hop notes. Flavor is also grainy, corn, grassy hops, astringent finish. Nothing special.
