3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml flip top bottle from M&S. Pours a light gold with no head. Nose is bready malt with some citrus lemon. Taste is bready, grainy, straw, lemon citrus and a malty slightly bitter finish. Smooth, refreshing and pleasant. Just weird that this beer had no head whatsoever, might just have been this bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet grainy pale malt, citrus, berry, grassy hay. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp off-dry mild bitter finish. (3/5)
I’m not generally a fan of lagers, and I left any reverence for the Reinheitsgebot behind a long time ago - but this is quite pleasant. No hint of adjunct sickliness, just clean pale malt and aromatic noble hops. As Helles Lagers go, this has got to be near the top of the heap. Now, if only I had a big pretzel to go with it, or maybe a pork hock… (13/20)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden beer with standar carbonation white head, dough aromas and caramel notes are perceived, the beer flavor itself is sweet and the maltiness is maybe quite high. Sadly no hops are perceived, which actually increase the sweetness and the alcoholic aftertaste.

I was gifted a cold pack of 6 this morning of these. Made my mouth water seeing them. danke X 2,016.
This is a highly drinkable, enjoyable and unencumbered bier.
Forgot to mention, I gave 2 of the six to another lover of beer on the way home.
Good discussion ahead when we meet again.
This is what beer is all about, oft’times.
