Imported Draft Another import served at Chicago's downtown Christmaskindlmart. Noticeably darker than the normal straw colored lager. Taste was surprisingly complex, too. The hop profile was almost flowery. This was served pretty cold, but some nice aspects came through. Malt taste was actually held back a little. I suppose this is more representative of the Münich style of Helles. Very nice.

NB: la mia valutazione si basa sullo stile della birra. Rispetto ad una pilsner, come ad esempio la urquell, ha più corpo ma comunque resta leggero. Il sapore di questa birra mi conferisce sensazioni particolari, nello specifico mi ricorda il fieno, la paglia e il manto erboso. Il colore della birra è giallo paglierino e si presenta pulita con una schiuma non spessa. La schiuma tende dopo un po a scomparire e questa è una pecca perché esteticamente rovina la birra. Il punto di forza di questa birra è il suo equilibrio grandioso, perché i sapori sono equilibrati. L'amaro finale si sente ed è combinato bene con il corpo. Per me è un'alternativa alla pilsner, è una birra per chi vuole assaporare sia il corpo che l'amaro finale.

Kauge (2126) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 31, 2017
Tap at Munich airport. Clear gold with white head. Grainy malts, rather pleasant modest sweetness (especially in the aroma). Light and kinda flat on the palate, carbonation very fine but in a way crisp, grainy dryish mildly bitter finish. Would've loved to down this by the pint in uni.

I drank this famous beer during some trips in Munich and particulary one with Fred at the legendary restaurant in Munich. We were drinking this beer and we took place in a table next to the main door. There was a Bavarian guy 100% drunk and it was speaking to us, maybe making a resume of the capital of Karl Marx, because this man was not thin and at a generous beard. It was really hard to understand this guy, even the fact that I speak not so badly german, you can put the traditional music and the crazy drunk guys singing like the Divz in the arenas of Verona and you could easily understand that it was a good memory of trip. This beer is a classical Bavarian lager, gold body, white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is malty, a bit bready, a bit metalic, some hop and watery, nothing great but it makes the job of happiness in this world.

macca147 (506) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2017
On tap at Oktoberfest 2012, Munich. Pours a pale biscuity yellow gold with a thin head. Aroma: malt, mild citrus and honey notes. Mild earthy notes. Taste: biscuity malt, mild honey, mild caramel flavours. Thin bodied. Moderate carbonation. Well balanced. Easy to drink and very palatable. Great session beer, and great when coupled with hearty German food!

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Tipica hell bavarese. Malto e luppolo si bilanciano per un risultato molto gradevole.
