2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Simple and average Helles which means it is not bad but neither really superb. Ok one to start or end the evening.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden-yellow colour, steady head and medium body for the looks. Nose of light malt and lemon. Taste of malt, mild hops, grass, mild citrus fruits and hay. Easy to drink but tastes like just any other Dortmunder/Helles, therefore it is quite boring and dull.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy gold with an off white head. Aroma is a sweet and floral. Taste is also floral but unbalanced. Palate is also not that great.

0.5 l bottle as present. Nothing special, just a "supermarket" standard Helles....

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with nice foamy head, but smell and taste are on the bland side. Aroma is sweet and grassy, taste is also sweet and very white bread with a hint of citrus. Little aftertaste or palate, and that is slightly metallic. Just under average for this outing.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, picked up at pivoteka in pilsen. Pale Riesling appearance, lightly sparkling with no head; simple aroma of hay and watered down pear schnapps; very dull with hints of apple and some rusty bitterness. A real snoozefest

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, pale yellow colour, firm white head. Very malty aroma, white bread, quite sweet malts. Very light citrus notes. Quite sweet malty flavour, light bitter touch. Light sweet malty finish.
Quite refreshing, very malty Helles. Lovely for the evening after a warm day.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 500ml (BB 03/2012)
Thanks bierkoning! Pale yellow color, small steady white head. Aroma is a bit buttery and has lemony hoppyness. Light bodied, mouthfeel is quite carbonated, soda water like. Lemony hoppyness, light fruityness and butterness. Sweet corn-malty feelingi in the background. Watery palate. Corona on drugs.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
it’s golden with a dense, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of malt and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of bread, flower, malt, light citrus, and the finish is slightly dry - nice!!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden body. Thin white head. No lacing. I get hay and barnyard with some citrus. Not too impressive. At least not that watery on the palate. OK.
