3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Towering white to light-yellow head over clear golden beer. Fresh German hops, pretty imposing for a Helles, grassy. Dry - "Herbes" beer, with a bucketload of hops - very grassy ones, and a faint grainflavour. Light body, refreshing, but bit broken-off aftertaste. Excellent in its style, usually not famous for its grandeur.
