2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer pours pale yellow in the glass and has a flat fine head. It smells malty, grainy, subtly bitter. Starts with pale malts, slight grainy, in the background some corn and aroma hops. The middle part is a bit more hoppy, subtly bitter, with a solid malt base, coupled with some grain. Goes into a malty-grainy and hoppy-bitter finish!

50 cl bottle - Bierzwerg des Monats OCt 2012 - Decent, fresh, sparkling and light helles. Slightly sweetish, pleasnt thirst quencher. Also: instantly forgettable - as is the fate of most Helles’ - could use some more hop character.
