2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From draft at the brewery in Regensburg. Clear sparkling gold with a short white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy and lightly malty with notes of lemon and wildflowers and black pepper with subtle off-notes of detergent. Malt and carbonation is rough and overly-carbonic and grating on the palate, seems to not have been lagered long enough. It’s malty in the mouth with a decent baked cracker Pilsner malt effect, light bodied, bubbly, moderately sweet with medium-low bitterness. The nose shows some promise, and it’s decently malty in the mouth, but the coarseness isn’t very appealing and there’s some sourness in the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught Good, dense yellowish head over totally clear golden beer; lacerings. Fresh malt, even a bit graindust, finely grassy, but also some maltsyrup smell. Sweet - very sweet even - pale malts. Finish is drier, grassy-herbal. Light body, gristslickness. Falls dead tastewise, but feels better carbonated than it looks. Not a bad Helles, but really to the sweet side.

My Bottom Line:
Smooth and toasty pils malts greet herbal hops and mineral whispers in this fine Helles.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the shiny clear golden.
-Malt structure is refined and bright.
-The fine bubbling leaves plenty of room for the malts to shine.
-I could pound this one regularly.
On tap at Spitalgarten.

(Bue sur place): Mielleux, rond avec une franche finale. Contraste abrupte entre les sucres et l’amertume. Intéressant.

Bottle looks very simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, malty, not too dry. A bit metallically. Finish with light fruity-spicy hints. Okay.
