3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden beer, fast gone whitish head. Dull malt nose, bit of grain too, graindust. Dry-bitter flavour with an unexpected decent balance malt-hoppiness. Light body, falls a bit dead, unfortunately. Medium carbonation. Unpretentious, hence having its merits.

Draft. A golden beer with a lazing white head. TBE aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, herbs, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko, thanks! Pale golden coloured, small white head, dusty grainy nose. Dusty, grainy, weak touch of hops and hint of caramel in the finish. Average and boring.

Again, thanks Riba! This is basically a textbook Helles for the better part. Golden body with a slightly too small head. Malty, grainy aroma. Completely ordinary, if pretty flawless taste. Grainy maltiness, pollen, no proper hop presence, maybe some very vague herbal notes... extremely mild carroty touch. In any case, better than your average commercial pale lager, but still quite unexciting.

Bottle from Drinks of the World Zurich. Golden body with puffy white head. Nose is sweet, nectar, malty. Taste is light malty, with some sweet notes, dry in the finish. Corny, eggy finish. Pretty good lager but not too splashy.

Easy to drink. Not particularly special but fine as a pub drink. Tasty enough at first but thin aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 On tap in a park music festival in Geneva. Pale but bright golden colour. Vague slightly hoppy lager smells. Taste is clean, no grim squidgey veg tastes here, decent malty background, and somewhere on the finish a bit of hop trying to make itself known. If only there’d been a bit more assertiveness! Felt like a well-made beer which just needs a bit more character and could have been very good; as it was, a good example of a pretty dull style.
Re-rate, on tap with Rouncefield in Zurich airport. Deeper gold colour, clean, reasonably assertive hop. My rating last time was a bit harsh.
