3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 1 pt. 9 oz. euro brown bottle with a produced on date in lower right hand corner of front label.
Poured a clear pale yellowish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking.
Aromas of toasted grains and bready, a light yeastiness and spices, hints of a fruitiness.
Moderate carbonation and a crisp, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel.
A nice premium, Helles lager taste, toasty and bready with a touch of dry crackers, spicy, lemony hops, a good soft crispness from the hops, and a dryish malty finish.
Another good lager from Paulaner, tasty and balanced, deserves at a place in your refrigerator.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle from SAQ]
Noble hops and malty malt fill the nose in a perfectly balanced crispness. Crystal bright straw with a fizzy top that doesn’t last long. The flavour is everything that the aroma promised: modestly sweet malt that tastes like it just came from the farm complimented by a pleasant, spicy hops flavour and gentle bitterness. My only complaint is a more than detectable taste of ethanol that penetrates the gentle flavour. Quite a bit of body for such a small beer. Could use a tad more carbonation too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color with small and big bubbles goinf upwards and a thin, bubbly white head. Good aroma of bread crust and crisp malt. The hops are mostly undetectable in the aroma but are more present in the flavor where the noble hops are joined by a good crisp malt and bread crust, there is also some mild citrus. The body is medium and oily while the carbonation is gentle. This a very pleasant and competent lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, deep straw yellow. Poured a fine tight bead that lasted a reasonable time for a light beer. Earthy spicy Euro hop bouquet quite evident in nose. Low malt as per style. Flavour was the same with a distinct Eur hop spciness. Could have used a bit more malt character to balance the hops, came off just a bit to dryish and thin at the finish, even for a Helles. Good drinking beer on a hot day after a long bike ride.
