RATINGS: 40   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.82/5   EST. CALORIES: 147   ABV: 4.9%
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.

kermis (11211) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle shared. Cloudy amber with a cream head. Aroma is bretty upfront, clearly and infected bottle. Some real manure and barnyard going on here overwhelming what the beer should be. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s not that bad, I don’t mind a bit of Brett. [03-09-2016]

jamaty (1914) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2016
Pajiza algo turbia. Super espumosa. Aroma a levadura, algo ácido. En boca resulta avinagrada, poco hecha. Ligera de cuerpo, bien de gas. Pero le falta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted at 14°C to 16,5°C. Pale yellow with light green reflections body, headed by a very fine white foam, quite lasting; many fine bubbles, lightly hazy. Aroma of wheat, hop, herb, light malt; freshness. Very pleasant start with a nice balance between malt and hop; citric notes arouse as temperature rises; fineness and balance; finish a bit short; a little bit spicy. Lively carbo.

zacgillbanks (4522) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2015
750ml swing-top bottle from Baptista Supermarket, Luz, Portugal. Hazy golden coloured with a large foamy white head. It has a sweet floral fruity and yeasty flavour, spicy dried fruit notes followed by almond and tart fruit on the finish. Very nice, but not really a Helles Lager.
