COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Appearance Yellow to medium gold. White foam, creamy and persistent. Unlike Pilsners (beer industry), the focus is on marlte this beer, but without excessive sweetness. The hop bitterness and aroma are present to "balance" the taste of malt, making it a very smooth beer.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Botella de 33 cl en el momento el 19-04-2015 en el kraken. Color amarillo pajizo claro transparente. Sabores algo cítricos y herbáceos muy suaves. Ligeros toques a sidras. Ligera y fácil de beber. Poca cosa.

KeefOz (1113) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2015
Tasted 27/3/15 at Medrosa d’Alfama, Lisbon. Poured a pale amber/pale straw colour with a few white bubbles as a collar that produced no lacing. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma of slight malt sweetness; no obvious hops. Tastes slightly sweet with a trace of yeast, becoming more yeasty as it warms; no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth and crisp and better than other local beers but not as good a a typical helles.

Cerbier (449) - - MAR 23, 2015
0,3l on TAP at Catraio in Porto. Hellgelbes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Leicht malziges Aroma, schmeckt auch so, dazu kommt eine nicht harmonisierende Hopfenbittere.

ThirstyBird (2095) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
Thanks to erzengel! Pours a hazy deep orange with an off-white head. The smell is fruity, grain. The taste is lemon, grass, grain ending dry. The body light with average somewhat coarse carbonation.

Erzengel (5312) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2015
Smooth fresh nose. Fresh smooth body. Soft, easy to drink, not much deepness but soft and slightly smooth. Fresh, nice.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2014
Pale gold. True to type. Malty sweet, discreet Cental European hops. Good with food.

Golden color, sparkling, no head... some malt tast, no bitterness, no hops... sweet after-taste but short.

cervmagpt (395) - PORTUGAL - MAR 30, 2014
Review notes according to BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: DMS dominates the grain, malt and hop aroma. No spicy hop aromas present. Appearance: Pale orange with poor head and poor retention. Taste and palate: Very thin body, with a low malty palate. No hop flavour and no fruity esters present. Very low carbonation and no adstringency. Overall: a very poor example of a Helles.
