3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl draft@ cafe in Zurich at approx 7 degrees C. Pours golden yellow with average white head with low retention. Malty aroma with some sweetnes reflected in the malt dominated taste - thankfully balanced with a little hoppiness. Medium body, low carbonation. Malty aftertaste with slight herbal notes perhaps the beer’s best feature. I found it tasty and pleasant though not very interesting

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
