Pours golden straw like color with tan head. Flavor and aroma are very similar and onedimensional: strong malt backbone, which takes on toast, bread, some caramels or toffee, with some floral hop notes....Body is light to medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Apperance is very pale and clear. Looks like Helles. Tastes like that too despite the high ABV. Herbal hops, not malty as Pilseners. Very refreshing but at the same time heavy stuff. Nicely balanced.

Zlotta (2158) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2016
0.5 l bottle from local ’Trink & Spare’, best before July 2017. Clear, pale golden yellow with a medium large, very dense, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, quite grassy-spicy aroma of fresh grass, some citrus and a bit of grains. Sweetish, a bit malty, quite grassy-spicy taste of fresh grass, grains, some citrus and hints of butter, followed by a short, quite grassy-spicy, moderately bitter finish. Almost medium-bodied, smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Quite nice actually, easily drinkable and refreshing with a decent dose of spicy hops.

Slight maltiness in taste. No corn aroma detectable. Pale clear yellow in colour. Considerably more palatable than the Paulaner Oktoberfestbier I just tried.

minihame2 (466) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Clear, really pale yellow colour with a quickly dissipating thick white head. Weak, malty aroma, slightly bready. Somewhat mild, bitter taste, dryish finish. A bit sweet. Very soft mouthfeel, creamy but low carbonation. It’s not bad but I didn’t enjoy it that much either.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Kirkas, vaalean kullankeltainen ja runsaasti kupliva olut pienehköllä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu hedelmäinen, viljainen ja maltainen, oikeinkin houkutteleva. Maku viljainen sekä varsin maltainen pienellä katkerolla höystettynä. Melko kevyt suutuntuma ja helppoa juotavaa ja toisaalta omaan makuun varsin nautittava kokonaisuus.
