2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Clear golden color with a frothy white head. Nice lace.
Aroma: Mild malty and hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Moderate malty and hoppy.
Overall impression: Plain standard pilsenener.
Personal stats: Bottle from a gas station outside Köln in Germany.
A bit darker than I'd like it, more amber than gold - up to the point where it is not transparent in bad light. A bit too carbonated for my taste, to the point where the acidity prevents properly feeling the taste.
Strong taste of hops added at the end of the boiling. I like hops more this way - adding it early only leaves the bitterness and wastes the flavor. You _can_ feel the bitterness, though, a short while after having swallowed.
Just a tad sweet - just enough to make it perfect for me, and I don't like sweet beers at all. Sweetness goes towards caramel or maple syrup, not sugar.
Rather fluid - not at all like one of those heavy, strong beers that feel like eating, not drinking. Maybe a tiny bit too fluid - but that's just perfect for the regular cooling agent during hot summer days.
I think that's going to be my staple beer, from now on.

Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is grainy, malty, caramel, vegetables. Taste is caramel, grainy, maggi, herbal. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. The house character of this brewery is not for me apparently. With this one, it's mostly the aroma that turns me off. Piepenhenrich (1198) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017

Nee, zo kom je er met de bio bieren niet. Meer in de Rivella richting maar dan ook niet echt lekker. DrNosha (2576) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
0,5l Flasche. Goldgelbes klares Bier, heller Schaum. Schön frischer grasiger Duft. Vollmundiger Geschmack. Gras und Getreide. Klassische Halbe.

Aus der Flasche im 2017-03 getrunken. Ein Bier gegen den Durst wo der Hopfeneinfluß sehr gut mit einer leichten Honignote ausgeglichen wird. Ein süffiges, solides Bier, aber auch recht unspektulär. Kann man - aber man muß es nicht trinken. Grumpelmies (333) - GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle. Golden coloured like apple juice. Nice head. Aroma of grass, hay and grains. Taste is grainy, grassy, spicy and a little bit bitter. Medium to strong carbonation. Süffig. Ok. NordicV (2471) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2017
En ljus lager utan något särskilt men också utan direkta fel. Ljusare gyllengul med vitt skum. Doft och smak av malt, bröd, hö och gräs. beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
Waldhonigfarben mit kleiner kurzlebiger BioBlume. Malzige Röstaromen im Antrunk, gute Würze, aber fast kein Hopfen spürbar. GoufCustom (2133) - HONG KONG - APR 25, 2017
500 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Looks: Clear golden amber colour; Two and a half finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant full Lager malt, with strong cookie dough, honey, floral, sugar, light spices, fair lemon and light grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet fair Lager malt, with light honey, light butter cookie, light floral, light molasses, spices, bread, light lemon, fair to light bitter hops and strong grass.
Body: Close to light body. Quite slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Fair maltyness in a slightly watery background. Lingering waves of cookies and honey to go with lights spices and fair sweetness. Grassy hoppy with light lemon to round. Light but interestingly good!
Hoppiness: Floral, light spices, fair lemon and light grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is light but notable for a lasting, low astringent bitter sweet malty finish.
After Taste: Slightly dry; Cookie doughty and light bitter to mouth.
Comments: This organic take of Helles maybe a little watery and slightly lightweight on maltyness, but it has enticing cookie aroma and strong grassy hoppy taste. Not exactly top staff but it’s neat and charming as a light refreshment. Drinkable!
