3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottled - Clear pale yellow colour, medium and quite stable white head. Clean malty aromas with bread, crushed grains and some flowery hops. Taste is well rounded malty with bread and cereals, subtle hop bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, dry malty finish. Well rounded malty lager, really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has clean malt and lots of noble hops character. Taste is very balanced. Clean malt and earthy, grassy noble hops with a good amount of bitterness to balance out the malts. Light to medium body with crisp carbonation. This is definitely one of the better, classic, helles style lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Piwo o blado złotym kolorze. Lekko słodowe i bardzo delikatne. Niezbyt treściwe. Piana na początku obfita, ale nie jest gęsta i kremowa. Po chwili w całości zanika. Niestety chyba nie jest to typ piwa, który potrafię w pełni docenić :(

Pours clear light golden, weak white head. Lovely aroma of noble hops and light malts. Taste is very light, sweeter at first then light sour/bitter nots catch up. Light body, high carb, watery. Not bad for a helles, refreshing.
