2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color topped with a rather small white head. Mild malty aroma, bready and grainy. Bready taste, some hints of bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Total Wine, Delaware 50cl: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grains, more hops than expected I suppose, but not really in a good way, and some bread. Taste is grainy and bready. It is not smooth and mellow in the way that I like helles style beers. This is an average, but not a good example of the style.

Grainy aroma, light bitterness, bread and cream and sweet malt flavors. Poured into a tall German beer glass resulted in constant bubbles and yellow bodied lager. $4 for a 500 ml old returnable swing top at Total Wine. Consumed during the World Cup Final.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty custom bottle. Pale golden colour, fluffy head. Aroma of grain, straw, yeast. Medium body. The taste has a hoppy charakter that would rather be a Pilsner than Helles. At finish & in aftertaste hops dominate as well. Crafty German example.

500 ml flip-top bottle in Coral Springs, Florida. This bottle traveled a lng way to meet me and it shows. It like so many other German beers did not travel well. Would really like to have this fresh in the homeland. Pours a golden yellow with a soft white head. Aroma tells you that it was exposed to high temps. Malt fruit and some paper. Taste is deep sweet maly. Palate is smoh but soiled.

500 ml bottle, very drinkable, only the second Hell I got to know, I really can’t explain why I like this beer a lot, only a year ago I would have dismissed it as to weak. But taste evolves and I would surely have another of these given the opportunity
