50cl Bottle from Marqt, as Ur-Helles, ABV 4.8%. Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of grain, light skunk, herbal and spicy hops but not in the way I like it. Flavour is grainy, skunky, stale hops, hint of metal, some toast, bitter grassy and mineral finish. Light-bodied. Didn’t like this at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home as ”Riedenburger Ur-Helles”, BBE 25.05.2012. Rated on 27.07.2011
Orange and cloudy with 1 cm long lasting head. Typical aroma to helles: butter and grainy malt, but a bit harsh too. Flavour is rather light for this style, it has hints of butter and some grain. Smooth palate, just right amount of CO2 but a bit watery though. Somewhat refreshing and good after sauna beer, but too watery and light for other use.
