3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy blond color. Very nice Pilsener, malty taste and very good Saaz hops in the aroma, flavor and palate, coming in waves of dryness and sweetness. Excellent one.

Refreshing, yes, but a little strange in aroma, like cat poo, again. Was not really interesting, and that is it.

It had a curious pineapple aroma. The color was a yellow/orange, not unlike the orange soda my daughter was drinking. The flavors included orange and lemon. The aftertaste was slightly bitter. It was a decently refreshing beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Madrid. It is labeled as Helles on the tap and Rubia on the menu. Cloudy yellow brew with decent clingy white head. Strong malty flavor for a pilsener. Slight citrusy sweetness. Clean and crisp on the finish. Good hop balance. Better than the dunkel, I thought. The best beer I had in Spain, but that’s not saying much.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Naturbier, march 07. Appareance is clear golden color with a white, creamy head. Aroma is some herbal hops, and little bready malts. Taste is bready, some grassy hops, very balanced. Pleasant, lingering, very slightly bitter aftertaste. MF is medium, with a bit on the malty side, but refreshing nonetheless. A nice, although a bit too common, helles.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy blond body with an off-white head. Good lace. The aroma is a bit weak, maybe some oranges. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. The flavour has also some oranges and German hops. Bit faint, but ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught (under the title Helles), slightly cloudy, but a bright gold with a filmy white head. A strong aroma with both malt and hops coming through with a definite fruity touch. Quite a wheaty flavour with a strong grassy hop presence and a smoother fruity finish. Pretty good - my fellow lager-lover also appreciated it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Naturbier. Poured a clear brighter golden with a short, creamy white head. Crisp and bready aroma with hints of caramel and grassy hops.. sweet and quite pleasant. Sweet, lightly-toasted bready malts in the flavor along with light grains at the core.. mild herbal and faint citrusy bitterness. Tasty. Light-bodied and somewhat grainy on the palate.. sweet, dry, and refreshing.
