4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. For the last 25 years and still now I never thought of this beer as a Pils. Pours a sraw color with a full frothy head. Aroma is fruit, esters and hey. Taste is a wonderful sweet Helles. Frurty mellow and sweet. Palate is a perfect soft mellow palate and goes down very smooth. A standard for others to follow.

Bottle looks simple, premium-like. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts mild, hoppy-dry, a bit soapy. Finish more balanced, less metallically. Spicy notes. Not too bad!

4/VIII/2012 - on tap @ Brauerei Kneitinger (Regensburg) - BB: n/a - (2012-826)
Clear golden yellow beer, creamy white head, very stable, adhesive, nice lacing. Aroma: grains, stable, hay, little herbal, some overripe fruits (banana). MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: some (carbon?) sour first, a little bit of grains, slight sweet touch, citrus. Aftertaste: some citrus, grains, hay, cow fodder, nice bitter dry ending. Very refreshing, I’ll give ’m that, but maybe the high summer temperature in the city had something to do with it as well. ;-)
