2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight citrus smell and taste on this one, but otherwise quite typical. Fair amount of carbonation. Quite drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Straw-like cereals and herbal hops ride this light lager, as sulfury angles pierce the citrusy fruitiness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Generous foam tops the pale yellow.
-The light body and prickly effervescence make for an airy mouthfeel.
-Drinkability is sky high.
-Balance is achieved.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours a clear pale yellow color forming a big white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention but a thin layer is quite persistent in the surface and quite many lacings are formed and leftin the glass
S: Classic German Lager in the nose, very grainy with strong notes of sweet malts, bread and flowery hops. Lager yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet grains and bready Lager yeast. In overall, a dry beer despite of the sweet grains upfront. End is made of mild and bit citrus hops bitterness. A bit ashy and metallic
M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and grainy aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Another smooth and easidrinking German Lager beer

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Has a pale golden-yellow color, with a small head.
Nearly no aromas detectable, hints of wheat and sweeter malts, with a grassy hop background.
Taste is watery with unpleasantly low carbonation, slightly stale. A refreshing, bitter hop note saves this beer from being undrinkable, which adds character to the usual wheat body among white-bread malts.The hops are noteable till the finsih, getting swallowed by sweeter malts and hay. Has a light-body, with not much to offer.

Tap at the Hirschgarten in Munich. From old notes. A very nice helles. Rich clean malt, and nice hop flavor and bitterness. Better than most of the others I have had recently, more distinguished, and a lot more hops.
