2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle in Germany, another quick one to get to 1000 today. Pours a gold almost amber color with a low white head. Aroma is hay, earth, and malt. Taste is sweet malts and slight smoke, and it is a bit thin. Palate is normal mellow for a Helles but nothing outstanding here. Alcohol is a bit low for a Helles. But this is a good middle beer.
