2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s pale yellow and had a rapidly disappearing head. I don’t get much aroma; maybe a hint of burnt rubber. Mouth feel is good as it’s nice and soft. Initial flavours in the mouth are pleasant; hints of lemon; maybe a hint of bubblegum; very clean. The finish is mildly bitter with a peppiness to it but it’s very short lived. It’s very quaffable and I wouldn’t know it was 5.3% but if it’s intent is to be a swift refreshing beer on a hot day I know plenty of session bitters that, in my opinion, out class it. I really want to like this, honest I do but my earlier experience of Helles still rings true; it’s the imbibing equivalent of being robbed. Clearly Helles aren’t for me. Oh well ...next style please :)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Poured a clear, effervescent golden yellow with a big & fluffy, slowly depleting but mostly lasting white head leaving a solid lacing. Grain, sweet dry malt and straw aromas. Grainy, malt sweet flavour profile with a delicate grassy hop finish and lingering light fruity malt aftertaste. Light, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, medium dry carbonation and a short finish.

Good Helles, very malt heavy all over the palate. Some mellow breadiness and long dry spice finish. You could drink giant steins of this and be very content .

Above average ABV, but seriously let down on the taste and aroma i.e there is none, looks very pale with no head

It’s golden with a white head and the aroma has notes of malt and light fruit. The flavour has a light to moderate sweetness with notes of malt, light fruit and straw, and the finish is slightly dry.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who brought it from Budapest (thanks!). . Poured a pale golden-yellow body with a small white head. Dry, dusty nose, light vegetables. Dry, ever so slightly grainy taste, very light bitterness from the hops, very light sourness. Boring as hell, not that good a beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl bottle from Aldi. An industrial lager; straw with a white head; grassy aroma; sweet cereal flavour; could be from anywhere. But at least its inoffensive, and if it’s cold enough not too bad.
