2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Bottle. Light diacetyl aroma, fruity yeast. Cloudy yellow, champagne bubbles, offwhite foam. Light fruity soap, a lot of butterscotch, good hop profile. Chewy mellow mouthfeel, sparkly on the tongue. Shame about the fault, I sense a good beer underneath, must try again.

50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Cloudy straw with ample fizzy white head and a good amount of sediment. Aroma is sweet malt and flowery hops. Flavor is citrus, honey, caramel. Full body, high carbonation. Short, modestly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the aroma and taste there is a slight grape and light breadiness. Very clean and fresh tasting. Golden with a fading white head. Very refreshing and surprisingly good for a lager.
Notes: Bottle from a Schnapps store in Bernkastle-Kues

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice light colored beer. Taste is smooth and very refreshing. Is a great Greman beer and freash and well done. Great beer of true German lines. I noticed that they claim Bavarian Purty laws and not German. Interesting since this is so far from Bavaria.

500 ML Fliptop bottle in Germany. Pour cloudy with one of the best lacying heads I have seen in a Helles. Aroma is well balanced and taste is a fine mix of hopps, malt and sweetness. As a Helles goes this natural unfiltered Helles is one of the best I have ever had. A must for Helles fans!!!1

Draught at the brewpub
Deep blond color; creamy head. It has a nice malt aroma, some cereals. Smooth mouthfeel, with some cereals and malt aroma, light residual sweetness; this one as well lacking of hop and bitterness, otherwise it would be a good Helles.

Bottle. Light malty and sweet, moderate hoppy. Large white foamy-frothy head, golden clear body. Moderate sweet, rather short duration. Creamy body and silky aftertaste, rather light body. Very nice one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml flip-top bottle brought home from Trier. Bottom fermented beer that pours a cloudy, orange body under a dense, white foamy head, reduced to a filmy layer after a short while. Moderate blend aroma of hops and malts. Pale malty taste followed by grain-like sweetness with fruity hops beneath. Dry ending. Fairly well made German Helles (Tromsø, 18.10.2007).
