2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light copper. Big thick head. Bready aroma has a slightly rustic, cidery note. Strawlike character with fairly low hopping. Not much character to this blandish example but it drinks easy enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewery. Deep golden/bright copper with great head and lacing. Aroma is fruity with apples and bananas. Crisp, dry, fruity at the same time. Clean potable palate has moderate to high carbonation. Nice nutty characteristics. Medium body. Has sweet grain character that lingers on the tongue and is a bit sweet but manages to refrain from being cloying. A pretty substantial helles.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (purchased at the brasserie): golden coloured, lively carbonation, quickly diminishing white fluffy foam, strawy-grainy nose with a light bitterness; moderate clean sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF, relatively "full" bodied; short sweet-bitter finish with the faintest illusion of aromatic hops. Enjoyable Helles...........

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a foamy white medium-sized head. Discreet nose, moderately sweet, strawy malty with shy notes of herbal hops. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, crispy, almost fizzy carbonation. Strawy malty taste with light herbal notes in the wings; sweet and very light bitter finish. Very close to the Sperber Bräu Classic Lager, except for the stronger carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp, pleasant beer that I wish I had a few days ago when the temp was 110. Said it before, but if the light lager makers here were making fare like this, the word "swill' would NOT come in to play. Refreshing, light and enjoyable.
