Pours nice yellow and clear with a full and stable head. Fresh smell of grass, spices and flowers. Tastes at first a bit malty/sweet, then more and more hoppy/spicy and fresh. Very refreshing and with a full mouthfeel. A decent Helles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 Vom fass at Wilde Rose in Bamberg, Dec. 2012: Sparkling yellow golden. Creamy and pasty white froth. Clean and focused nose of flowers, melon, minerals and hay. Soft carbonation. Tad thin. Sweet notes of honey-kissed hay meld with a pistachio-like lager yeast bite and semi-sweet splash of nectar. Soft and bright hop character mimics grass clippings and even some spruce and vibrant lilac. Muted hop spice comes and goes amid the lavish and soothing hop oils. Elegant hoppiness continues with a lemony twinge in the center and nectary aplenty. Pils malt shows no starchiness, though its resounding softness beautifully harmonizes with the equally soft hops. Finishes softly with a nicely balanced interplay between delicate haylike flavors and ultra soft hops. Keesman’s products can be readily found in Bambergerland, and despite the ubiquity, the quality remains high. Both the Hell and Pils are always a reliable fallback option, especially when in need of something on a whim.
