2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Are they pushing the limits of the Reinheitsgebot by using hop extract? I’ll leave that to the lawyers.
Very pale, minimal head. Medium-bodied (more substantial than it looks). The predominant flavor is caramel malt. A little bit of the skunky flavor that sometimes comes with central-European brews. The hops are crisp but very light. All of the flavors fade very quickly. Forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold, white head. Malt aroma, grains, hay. Taste again sweetish Munich malt, grainy, grass and hay. Low amount of bitterness. Light to medium body. Nothing spectacular but very nicely done and hits the spot every time. My go-to Helles.

500ml bottle, 5.2%. Pours clear golden with a white head that doesn’t last. Refreshing barley malt flavoured beer. Half decent but nothing original about it. Fairly average lager

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Reilly’s (Lisnaskea - £1.79):
Quite a nice lager without really doing much to stand out from the crowd, being from Germany is almost enough to elevate it above most lagers you’re likely to try in the UK but it is by no means a classic. It had enough going for it to keep you interested and the crisp finish was particularly pleasing but it’s not a beer I’d go out of my way to track down again.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decently balanced beer. Golden yellow color with a smooth finish. Worth a taste if you are interested in trying a new German beer but nothing significant to brag about with this offering.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wygląd pełny, klarowny, barwa złota, piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, nietrwała. W zapachu trochę drożdży, trochę chmielu, mało wyrazisty. W smaku lekko ziołowy, całkiem niezła goryczka, nie zalega, na języku szerokie. Po kilku chwilach aromat się ulotnił.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear golden amber with a full white head cover, short strips of lace. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt that is countered on the swallow by assertive floral hops. Malt and hops share a medium finish. Clean and refreshing.
