3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat strange flavor and aroma in this...Pours with a very nice compact head, dies nice and slowly. Bright yellow gold, highly effervescent. More herbal (and I don’t mean the subtle ones, this has a strange bitter vegetal, leafy quality to the aroma and the flavor). Aroma is relatively muted compared to the flavor, but the beer is still a little cold. Extremely fresh and with a brash set of flavors; slight tinge of sourness, moderate-to-high sweetness (sourdough bread, liquid white sugar), moderate bitterness of the leafy type. This is not a subtle helles beer. Natural and a little rough in the beginning, but with warming and the later pour (this is a filtered beer), and resulting big head everything softens just a bit. I like this one a lot.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Golden, lazy carbonation, small lacy white head; sweetish grainy to dusty nose with a light lemony touch; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; sweetish-grainy finish with delicate bitter and estery traces in the aftertaste. Not bad, but boring......

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a mid-sized foamy white head. Slightly sweet pale malty and biscuity aroma with mineralic and slightly herbal hoppy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Malt-accented taste with chalky and herbal notes; sweet and shy bitter, also a bit fizzy finish. Probably better on tap. 19.V.10

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. But the aroma is very sharp. Flavor a lottle bit sourish but also a little bit spicy. An average beer.
