500ml bottle from Beers of Europe: poured (three times) into an old stemmed Pilsner glass that I like to use for tastings. 9th Jan 2016 and I am having a four beer Bavarian tasting session with myself and no one else. I know ’hell’ is ’light’ in German but this is uber hell, very light indeed. Slight grain aroma and taste with a hop bitterness later in the mouth. Do not pretend this has flavour and depth. It is refreshing and clean tasting but has no real beer like taste or character. A sunshine beer, not a cold, wet winters night one: scored objectively and kindly.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Tasted skunked in the classic cheap larger style. Can imagine it being decent fresh from the tap though. It has a sweetness to it, but too many skunk bready notes coming through. It has a distinctive taste Macro larger. Think Bitburger with added sweetness and a touch more complexity. Its nothing special, not even close to being. But its passable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Thin yellow lager whose salty skunky taste has more in common with the macro lagers from far flung territories than the brewing tradition of Bavaria.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hell, gelb, durchsichtig. In der Nase leicht pilsig, etwas Malz und metallische Noten. Am Gaumen typisch helles, allerdings sehr schwach, Etwas Honig. Im Sommer sicher trinkbar, gibt aber weitaus bessere Alternativen.
