3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Weihenstephaner am Hackeschen Markt, Berlin, 24 July 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, grass, hay, cereal and a touch of vanilla. Malty taste with bread, grass, hay, hints of tropical fruit and a gentle grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a light sweetness. Tasty and well balanced, but doesn’t really stand out. Quite enjoyable.

Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Medium bodied, malty beer. Not very special, mild and lacking in hops compared to the pils, but good.

One of the world’s classic beers. I love the natural smell and flavor that you get with German beer, and this is a great example. It smells like a brewhouse floor. In a good way. Straw, malt, pale yellow color. A truly great Helles.
