On tap @ the brewpub. Pours hazy straw with stable white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and yeast with a subtle note of paper. Sweetish, yeasty and malty flavour with a good layer of hoppy bitterness. Bitter finish. A very nice Helles.

Hazy yellow gold with a nice thick white lasting sticky lacy frothy head. Smells of malt and faint alcohol and hop. Smooth frothy medium body. So smooth. Taste of malt, toasted malt, pepper and barley. So smooth and soft to drink. Slight hoppiness on the finish. Very very smooth.

Overall this is your standard generic german beer not great not bad just in the middle. Nothing over the top stands out to me. Drinkable but that is about all it has going. Mildly bitter, mild carbonation, slightly toasted malt and it all comes together to just make a medium of the road beer.

From BA: Sept 2007. I bought two brown flip-top bottles (half-litres) on my visit in June 2007. I knew they would have a short life because of the set-up of the brewery, but I forgot to check and log the ’best before dates’ on my return to the UK. The bottles I am reviewing should have been drunk before 25th July 2007, I drank them today, 10th Sept 2007.
Poured into my Berliner Kindl half-litre sleeve glass.
I had this draught at the brewery, so knew it was going to be very cloudly. The colour is a dull orange with a good firm white head, not pure white, but whiter than biege.
The aroma is of yeast and light malts, hops too. Not a lot of power in any of the smells though.
The sharpness I remembered from the fresh draught beer had gone, but the sour refreshing taste was still evident, dry and bitter. This is a fine tasting beer.
The sourness stays in the mouth, as does the dry bitter taste. What a pity I am not drinking this on a warm summers day on the banks of the river Mosel, but in damp old England.
Obviously the freshness isn’t in the beer anymore, but it was still very drinkable and I will re-review this beer if I get the chance to do so with an indate bottle, or draught at the brewhouse.

Thanks Bottleshop! Please standby for a real rating. I’m actually enjoying the company of other beer enthusiasts instead of being a non-social "I must rate this right now!!!"
