3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, Maruhn (backlog - had this a while back). Elegant and lean, perfect quaffer of an old school Helles: crisp biscuit malts laying a suave foundation for gentle noble hops, with a tinge of citrus and a very clean finish. Little sweetness, minimal graininess. Great, fresh and unpresuming sessioner.

Mmm...toasty, malty and slightly bready. Crisp and clean, and so easy drinking. This is by far the best helles I have had. Body is medium full. Slight grainy flavor. Bitterness is low. Palate has almost a creamy texture. Finish is pure malt flavor. Could totally see myself drinking this all day in Munich.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured out a slightly dark goldish color and slightly hazy with a generous white puffy head that left lacing alongside the glass. It actually deceptively almost looks like a Hefeweizen. The aroma is mostly floral with minor notes of vanilla and citrus. Medium bodied and pleasant refreshing taste. Not overly bitter and very easy-drinking.

0,5 l bottle. Golden in the glass with a big white head. Grainy on the nose. Starts low grainy with citrus hints, not very spicy. Later little bit malty, low bitterness, citrus. Easy to drink, but I missed the spicy notes.

Bottle 50 cl, BBE 07/2014. Pours clear golden in color with a creamy whitish head. Hay and autumnal meadowy notes in aroma. Nice. Malty sweet notes with some bitter grassy and hay in taste. This was an excellent helles, a real thirst quencher.
