brugmanneke's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
brugmanneke (283) - - OCT 25, 2012
(50 cl bottle) very pale golden colour, clear, with a foamy white head. Looks kind of watery. Aroma has hints of grass, citrus and cereals and is generally rather subtle. One could also say weak. Taste is lightly bitter. Thin texture, soft carbonation. Nothing really unpleasant about this one, even as it gets warmer. But overall too mild, watery and boring. Would work well as a thirst-quencher, though.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Direktlieferung aus der Brauerei). Klares Gold im Glas mit weier Schaumkrone, die schnell weg ist. In der Nase nasses Gras, im Antrunk mild hopfig. Sehr, sehr leicht....

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2017 Bottle. Clean honeyish maltiness, some rust and light hops bitterness and grassy character. Drinkable, but nothing special. Average.

50cl bottle. Pours clear pale golden colour with a huge most good lasting froothy white head. Aroma of mild metallic hops, grainy malt. Taste of mild grassy hops, pale malt, hints of metallic hops, overall not bad.

SinH4 (4125) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Standard Helles appearance. Aroma is sweet malts, not really hoppy. Taste is flowery, sweet malts, boring Helles, but very drinkable. Finish is too metallic. Nice foamy mouthfeel. I am not sure what to think of this.

This beer has such a beautiful name... Really, "Hallertauer Hopfentrunk Hell." It holds such promise. Sadly the liquid does not deliver. Its clear pale gold, some sticky foam -- so it look all right. Swirling around the glass throws some sweet wort, garbage-like DMS, and barely any hop into the aroma. Lightly sweet, light acidic tang, very low bitterness. I fear that its misleading to put the word "hopfen" in the name. Lately Ive been enjoying some subtle, boring-ish beers but this is below consideration.

0,5 l bottle. Also from kappldav123. Thanks a lot! Clear, golden, white head. Looks like expected. Malty with fruity hints on the nose. Taste is malt, grainy, little bit metallic, citrus background. Increasing bitterness. More taste than a standard Helles, but still a Helles.

Erzengel (8322) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
Many thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle! Smooth and malty beginning. Not too deep, not too hoppy. Standart Helles with not much flavour. Highly drinkable though but boring with hints of grain and only a few malty hints. No long aftertaste, nearly no bitterness.

Bottle looks very simple, almost like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, modest hoppy-dry, grasy, light sourish. Background a bit metallically. All in all quite mild, but not washy, but the hoppy notes could be more intense. Average.
