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.

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.

Bottle. Loved this stuff. Dry, herbal and grassy, bitter hops in the finish, and nicely dry to finish, slightly lemony. This is quality, i could have drank this all night.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear as a bell, pale yellow, brief white head.
Nose: plain as the nose on your face, dry, with slight citrus and honey, but pleasant.
Citrusy taste, but mild as mild can be in every way possible, mild and light, light and mild, sticking together like Mutt and Jeff, nothing can tear them apart.
Good, tasty, lip-smackin’ texture, though, so, it’s got that going for it.
Light’n’breezy, so, it’s perfect when that’s all you what, but frankly, it bores me to bits.
As good or better than, oh, say, 85% of all the lagers in the world.
