2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma is weak with very light notes of malt and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt, light fruit, and it ends on a dry note. It’s like it’s really wanting to be a very nice beer, but it looses faith even before it starts...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp hay and floral hops perfume. Crystal straw with bubbly, thin, white cover. Sweetish base malt flavour infused with noble hops and only some stabilizing bittering (almost none). Sort of tingly sweet but not cloying. Hay in the taste too. Sort of zesty finish. Medium body, sweet finish, medium carbonation.

Bottle. Creamy barley malt aroma with a hint of grass. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Creamy barley malt flavor with moderate bitter hops finish. Standard but still a nice Helles.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lighter lager in the classic Helles style. First impression is of a light malty sweetness, little body and not much else. However, a little further down the glass, the subtle hops come through as you might expect. The result is a very drinkable, slightoly above average, yet not terribly memorable beer.
