3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
They are calling it an ’outside the box’ helles apparently.
Hazy orange gold pour with a medium tight white head.
aroma is biscuity, light citrus fruit, grassy hop. hint of honey sweetness.
flavour is very nice. Light sweet maltiness. Hop comes across more floral in the flavour. Very smooth on the palate.
I actually enjoy this very much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ar: Licorice, black tea, and slight sulfur - a bit of toasted malt.
Ap: Cloudy straw-gold - small white head with low retention - a small ring of lacing remains.
T: Sweet dough - medium bitterness with a pronounced black tea flavor, somewhat tannic - lemon, licorice, and grainy pils malt on the finish.
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry.
O: Certainly an interesting beer - the black tea and licorice flavors are very pronounced and surprising in a beer this light - fun to taste, though I can’t say I would drink this in quantity.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a hazy, opaque golden with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale golden head. Aroma is not strong but is still inviting, with fruity and malty notes. Fruity flavor has notes of malt, apple and yeast with hints of hops and wood. Firm-bodied texture is strongly fizzy and leaves a nice woody, tingly finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours yellow, slightly cloudy but mostly transparent. Big white head with traces of lacing. Smells very nice! Floral hops, lemon zest and wild flower honey. Really fresh and nice on the nose. Taste is not as good as the smell, much like sweet malts with a little citrus. Not much of an after taste, but it is clean and slightly bitter and dry. I am disappointed that the taste does not measure up to the smell.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized head that quickly dissipates. Decent lacing. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Taste is bready and sweet citrus with bitterness in the finish. The sweetness was a bit like orange candy. A little too much for me.
