Koelschtrinker (16417) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Frisch hopfig-würziger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil wässriger, gleichzeitig hopfiger. Prickelnd, viel CO2. Grasig-herb, natürlich. Hier wieder hopfiger werdend, was auch den herben Ton stärker erscheinen lässt. Etwas fruchtig, herbes Finish mit bitterem Ansatz. Test vom 12.8.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 10,10,10,11,-,10 - 10,15

Pale clear yellow color, small steady creamy white head. Citrusy nose with hints of sweetness. Fizzy. Nicely citrusy, leafy hoppy brew. Light palate. Rounded sweetish bitterness in the aftertaste. Refreshing and good.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Crunchy hay and wooden hop dryness surround watery passages in this clean and balanced Helles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear pale gold.
-The nose is very subtle. More aromatic hops would not hurt.
-The body is lean and prone to "suffering" big gulps.
-The malts are biscuity at times.
-The overall flavor profile is too shy to make this a compelling pint.
-This is by no means a bad brew, but compared to the blond lagers brewed a few hours away in Vienna or in the Czech Republic, it is rather ordinary.

On tap at the brewpub.

gunnar (7653) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2010
On tap at Kaltenberg Sörözö, Budapest. Pours clear light golden with a big creamy white head, which disappear totally after 2 minutes. Nice malty aroma, with some light grassy hops. Taste is light sweet with minimal bitterness towards the end. Low carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Nothing special.
