Reviewed 2/24/13. Thanks to Momar42 for this German curiosity! 500ml bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a very pale straw color featuring excellent carbonation. The head is a two finger whIte color. It fades at a moderate clip, and leaves nice patches of lacing going down. S: It’s a typical aroma for the style - lots of grassy hops, unobtrusive malts, and some diacetyl. I’d say the latter is a bit more prevalent than I’d like, but a fairly good aroma otherwise. T: At first, the buttery diacetyl presence (just like in the aroma) comes fairly strongly. Luckily, it smooths out into nicely crisp, hoppy bite on the finish. Some slight fruitiness will try to build up, as well. Not ultra interesting, but about what I expect from the style. M: Light and crisp to be sure - but sadly the finish and aftertaste isn’t as dry as I’d like here. For that reason, it lacks great drinkability. It’s got good carbonation, at least. O: Not bad. I’d say this one is a notch or two below the best of the style, though. Worth a try.

ruigo (1270) - PORTUGAL - DEC 14, 2014
50cl bottle. Straw yellow colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and straw in the aroma. Soft to average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is a bit sweet with some bitterness towards the end. Overall, a boring beer.

Bottle at Cafe Brecht. Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma is nice and grainy, light lemony notes. Taste is slightly sweet, light honey sweetness, soft, pils like breadyness. Palate is light, a bit watery. Decent.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ Café Brecht. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, hay, initially a hint of sweetness and honey but a nice soft bitter finish. Easy drinkable clean and crisp helles. Like it.

Drink cold (8°C) Eye: Pours a light-golden color with a small, unfortunately rather quickly dissipating head. Lively carbonation, nice. there are some small plaices of foam remaining. Nose: don’t get much. a bit too cold perhaps to smell something. Hops and herbal spices perhaps. Mouth: grassy, hoppy, a bit metallic. nice tickling feeling because of the carbonation, I like that. Palate: herbal, resinous, wooden, rye, actually quite nice. Overall: nice beer actually if you like Helles

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
New 33cl bottles, fresh bb04/2015 (unrated: 50cl). Much creamier and flavourful than I remember this being. Nose is still strawy cow fodder, but sparkingly fresh and well-hopped cereal goodness in the flavour makes up for that. Excellent near-pils sessioner, making a classic case for Helles.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 Clear pale yellow colour. Big bubbled white head. Malty, bready, crispy and refreshing. Nice German Lager. [ BA Review @ 9/14/2014 ]
