3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-gold, large white head; aroma is sweeter than the average helles, malt and sweet fruit; tastes much the same - again, much more flavour than a standard lager - a ripe orange/lemon fruitiness makes it stand out; quite bitter too, which is nice; earthy hops; an enjoyable all round summer winner.

Draught at the brewery, from a barrel I believe. Something went wrong with this beer. Undercarbonated. Smells like warm french toast. Terrible taste, like rotting plant matter. I think highly of Mahrs but this beer went terribly wrong. If I had not had it at the brewery, I would not have rated it at all.

Bottle at Moan and Dove poured into the mug you see in this picture. Pours a clear yellow urine color with a thick sudsy white head. Nose is bready, toasty, malty. Flavor is similar, the good thing about the Moan is that they never really served old or expired bottles so you knew you were getting it as fresh as you could, with B.United. playing a role in that as well. Solid helles, would like to try in Germany.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravity Keg at Churchkey event. Poured a clear light amber color, without much of a head to speak of. Aroma was some sweet malts, touch of toffee in there. Not a whole lot of hop presence here, mostly a light malt bomb.
