3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 11.2012. Very grassy nose, lightly dusty. Pours clear yellow with a sudsy off-white head. Taste is very juicy, good noble hop presence with low and lightly metallic bitterness, no citrus but the pale malt makes up for it (this is like a highly hoppy Helles). Sweetish start but dries out, light body is soft.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The regular 500ml bottle, best before Jan 2012, poured into two Veltins badged stemmed tulip glasses during Oct 2011.
The review was also taken with a Spaten Munchner Hell (a blind tasting, not knowing until afterwards which was which).
Lighter than the Hell and slightly more bitter, it is a typical German Pilsner and has nothing to put it above most of them: it’s clean, crisp and clear just like all the rest.
Mr average in every aspect when compared to its rivals.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Laschet’s. Pours a pale gold with a fluffy white head. Remarkably clear. Nose is full of pils malt, distinct herbal noble hopping. Really clean and crisp nose. On tasting, sharp bitterness that is well balanced by bread pils malt. Quite clean and refreshing, though not a ton going on in there. Still, good beer.
