4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden colour, creamy white head leaving lacework. Intensive, lovely aromatic floral hop aroma. Light and elegant malty base with lots of aromatic hops with hints of hay, freshly-mown lawn, herbs and a floral touch. Smooth and velvety palate, a touch fo yeast is present. Perfectly balanced. I could drink this all night. Surprising, how tasty a simple Helles can be - this is pure delight.

Tap @ Salm-Braeu. Cloudy, golden color, short-life small sized white head, grainy and yeasty aroma, light body, decent fizziness for me, slight sweet malty taste, moderate herbal hoppy palate. Nothing special, but drinkable.

At the Brewpub. Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is soft to dry with fine carbonation. Fresh! Mild minerals. Semi dry malt with a whisper of something fruity before a crisp finish. The freshness carries this otherwise bordering-on-bland beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
19/07 On tap at the brewpub. It poured hazy golden body with small head. Typical lager aroma of bread malt and herbal hops. Fine, but watery flavor, slightly sweet bready, a bit grainy and dry herbal. Yeast is only slightly felt despite it’s unfiltered. A bit softer towards the end, pleasant smoother finish. Thin in body. More like a premium lager or a light pilsener than a helles, had shown some qualities but it didn’t turn my wheels.
