Bottled (late Feb Tasting with MT & KS). Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is maize, some grains, bready malts and mild grassy notes. Flavour is sweetish maize and malts along with some grassy and herbal hops. Refreshing, but rather thin as for the palate. Beerhunter111 (22550) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2014

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 2L ceramic flask - thanks random bloke in Koht! (6:3:5:3:10=2.7)Benzai (16708) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2015
Simple sweetish light grains. Pale, huge peristent white head. Simple light sweetish grains in taste. Smooth palate. Finish softly grainy. Very simple lager, but nicely grainy and bready. Very low in hops.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Simpler, plainer. Still very malty. Has house malt tastes. More like a 2.5-2.6 this time, too simple.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) as "Das Echte Helles" (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Lovely fruity sweet german helles aroma. Nicely fruity sweet body too - great drinkability. But not a tick as a dodgy rebadge, fuck you Hoss!
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, medium to full sized white head. Smell and taste malts, sweetish grainy, sweet maltyness. Average body and carbonation. Decent. DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 28, 2015

crossovert (13947) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at tomer’s place. Thanks zvsn. Clear golden. Aroma of graininess, wort, honey, paper. Sweet flavor with graininess, wort, paper/cardboard, honey, and a faint bitterish finish. Light-bodied. 3/3/3/2/5=1.6
Richer gld, struggles to form a white head. Smell s musty, lots of metal, fruitiness. Mouthfeel is kind of soda-like. It is malty yet with a metallic taste. Not a great one.
