3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl from local Alnatura, thanks Bioland label. A pity this is not allowed to exist in the database under its original "Riedenburger Ur-Helles (Bioland)" moniker. Almost Kölsch-like lemonade rich and dry "copper", fresh bread crust malts ideally complemented by feinwürzige Hallertau hops with a zesty tinge. Quite some character for a Bioland beer: rural, honest, basic good stuff.

Pours hazy pale yellow. Head is gone within about 1 minute of pouring, leaving a bit of lace around the edges. Aroma is peaches, yeast, and a little orange and spice. Somewhat sour, not much sweet. Finish is rather short. Medium body. Pleasant and drinkable, but not exceptional.
