3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s slightly hazy golden with a white head and notes of malt, straw, bread and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes like the aroma, and it finishes slightly dry.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer in glass is golden yellow, bubbly with medium fine, ephemeral head. The smell is typical of a Helles! sweet hoppy, also minimal grain. Starts sweet hoppy, still quite mild, with the grain again in the background. The aftertaste is good aromatic, sweet hops again. The center maintains its good mildness, the grainy note comes through a little stronger, and remain there until the finish.

0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Pale golden color. The aromas of grass, honey and hint of sulfur. Sweetish very honeyish flavor with hint of peppery-grassy hops. Not bad helles.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass not too zippy, small head. Starts hoppy, modest dry and bitter, only light malty. Finish mild, but not washy, modest dry, good use of hops. Not as spicy as exspected but still a good beer!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pale greenish-golden, rapidly vanishing loose white head; sweetish-strawy nose with a touch of cardboard; moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, almost medium bodied; swetish-strawy finish with papery and grainy influences. Not great.........

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, with thanks to pivnizub! Clear yellow colour, large and creamy white head. Malty nose. Solid malt flavours with very nice herbal-strawy hop flavours. Light-bodied, the flavours are rather shy but the beer is not watery. A good light Helles.
