Bottle: Pale golden to golden,a bit unclear, small and stable White creamy head; moderate sweet-grainy nose, pale malt still detectable plus some forgotten hops in the Background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, nearly medium bodied and quite smooth; short pale-malty finish with a small amout of herbal hops in the aftertaste. Not the most aromatic brew, but a chewy and well drinkable Helles...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home, into a Guinness glass, ABV 5.5%
Pale golden yellow colour, clear body, two fingers of white head with good retention and light lacing on the glass. Here stops everything nice as the aroma has lots of metal on it, and not the good kind either, like thrash for example. Some straw too, but in general very weak and not so pleasant.
Taste of malts and bread which at first is pretty okay, but quickly it turns to a metal fest and not the ..oh I used that before. Lots of metallic notes is what I’m saying,covering everything else, even the dirty straw that is present but faint would be better.
Thin body, average carbonation.
Overall not a very good one.

It’s slightly hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has oxidiated notes of hay, apple, malt and straw. The flavor has a light sweetness and the same oxidated notes as the aroma.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Decent Helles with a strange aroma like a lager which is open a bit too long.
