2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle served in a shaker glass. Pale canary yellow, perfectly clear, with an average, frothy bright white head, which went away very quickly. Slightly grainy aroma, light citrusy edge, mild biscuity malts, a hint of wet grass, some cardboard as well. Quite refreshing and smooth, some cardboard presence in the taste upfront, preceding a moderately bitter, malty and slightly herbal component. Some sugary sweetness in the background. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Not bad, not great, just plain average.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 bottle from local supermarket as "Kaiserdom Urtyp Helles". Not much of a head, light colour and light taste, as one would expect from helles. There is hint of hops, though. So this is not quite hopeless. Maybe I should have tasted this during a hot summer day and not in the middle of the winter.
