This beer is just barely above average. It has a cloudy appearance and a floury taste, but not worth writing home about. It’s similar to the Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier, but not as good. Really, I was underwhelmed. Don’t expect much here.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
American macrobreweries could take a lesson from this beer. It pours a golden yellow color with a one-fingered sudsy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is mildly malty with a touch of grassiness. Nice smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel. It’s got a tasty sweet malt flavor with a dash of orange bitterness from the hops. Nice clean, crisp finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: hint of formaldahyde, bit of citrus and some malt. Appearance: actual golden yellow colour with a tiny hint of cloudiness. Small quickly dissipating head. Flavour: really mild sweet slightly fruity malt. Some graininess present. Palate: don’t know if it’s because I am drinking it at breakfast but this has some good body to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light and delicious. Smooth. Somewhat watery and refreshing, but has a solid sweetness to it. Hoppiness is also delightful. A solid beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head dies in moments, much the same as the hefe and krystall by the same guys. Looks much the same also. Cloudy yellow body. Small malt aroma. Soft palate, definitely a mild beer. Some citrus lightness to it. Nice enough but you can go local and get just as good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a boring but very pleasant beer. if you’re looking for entertainment from your beer go and have a gueuze or a rauchbier. this is just a very well done malty lager. soft, clean to a fault, simple and drinkable. just enough hops to dry out the full malt. reminded me of hofmark mild.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden yellow color with a small head short lived. Grassy smell with some maltiness. Mild herbal flavor with some sweetness on the top and some malt to go along. Crisp with a slighty bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice Helles, but not a great one.
