Eichhofener Helles from Schlossbrauerei Eichhofen from the town of Eichenhofen. Color is golden but not as intense yellow-gold as others. It’s almost pale, has a large bright white head, too. Aroma is the same as above, very Pils malty with some bitter hops around it.
The flavor is slightly sweet, bitter and a hint of lemons in the background all in one swallow. Up front is bitter-sweet, middle is maltier and bitter and a slight sourness, back is where the lemon aftertaste comes. The sweetness and lemon are strongest on the aftertaste, yet while it swirling in the mouth it stays bitter. It’s also a tad on the thinner side for a mouthfeel, but not drier. I’m not sure if I like this one as much. You’d think all these complex flavors would add up to more, but it’s feels more like their not all in sync. Overall, a really good beer, but it’s both a tad too bitter and a tad too sweet. I can taste the lemony aftertaste strongly after I swallow, but sadly that’s the best part. Again, don’t get me wrong. It’s a damn good beer! Just a little underwhelming after having drunk the Regensburg Spital Helles.

Bottle @ Drinkers Pub, Eindhoven. Clear yellow to light golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, fresh crisp hops to my surprise, a soft malt bitter finish, lightly sweet-bitter.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Quite zippy, nice head. Starts hoppy-fresh, a bit flowery, modest dry. A little bit metallically. Finish a bit more spicy, still fine hoppy. Quite drinkable. Not bad!
