500ml flip-top bottle. Straight from the bottle. Light golden color. Almost no aroma, but bit of grassy hops and malts are detected. Aftershave, soapy, malty, taste. Fizzy mouthfeel. Light body.

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk
Pale lagery aroma, a little sweet. Blandish malts. sweetish. Just a clean drinkable lager. However nothing stands out. This score is clearly an underrate but there’s nowhere I want to bump up.

Bottle:Pale greenish-golden, quickly collapsing loose white head, lazy carbonation; papery-grainy nose with an illusion of strawy hops; mild sweetish flavour with a delicate - barely detectable - bitterness, light bodied, but also sticky; short sweetish-bitter finish.Not good…

swing top bottle 500ml. - Clear yellow coloured, medium sized white head, whiff of grass in the nose. Malty, dusty grassy, weak hoppy and hint of lemon with short bitterish finish. More than three weeks after BBE date but honestly not sure does that make any difference in general.

(Kulmbacher Mönchshof Bayerisch Hell) Swing top bottle 500 ml, at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 4.9%
Pale golden yellow colour on the body, with a good sized white, soapy head, average retention, light lacing laft behind.
Aroma of grass, stale hops, light straw.
Taste of stale bread, old grass, straw.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Not so good, and boring on top of that.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden with a massive off-white head quickly dissipating leaving no lacings. Aroma of faint grains, pale malt, grass, bread and sweet fruit. Taste starts grassy and bready, then over to the sweeter side of the malt, with almost hints of overriped fruit.. Slight earthy touch. Light to medium body, soft carbo, slight oily texture. Not a perfect Helles by any means, a tad too sweetish for the style for me.
