3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma starts out with a prevalent banana and clove note, which fades and is replaced by something more yeast-like, maybe toasted bread too. As the drink settles, a slight mildew and wet leather start to come through. The beer is a clear, pale straw color with a light, bubbly head that reduces to a thin, but present, layer and leaves a light lacing. The taste is a medium high sweetness with a light bitterness. It’s a light bodied beer with a creamy and smooth texture and a light, fuzzy carbonation. The initial flavors that strike the tongue are honey, and caramel, both with a mellow presence. This is accompanied by a light grass note, a mild, sweet lemon, and a very faint spice. The finish is crisp, with a mellow spicy hop bite. The aftertaste is floral, bread, and spice, but it’s a light aftertaste the fades at a moderate pace.

And another Helles ... 0,5 l bottle. Claer golden witha one finger white head in the glass. Smells low grainy. Taste is mid grainy low but present bitterness. Nothing really wrong but boring to be honest.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze zlotym nalewa sie z dosc obfita biala drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora jednak bardzo szybko znika bez wiekszych sladow. W aromacie ziola i gotowane warzywa i pieczywo tostowe. W smaku polslodkie z wysokim wysyceniem i srednioniska goryczka. Smakuje platkami owsianymi i nic poza tym. Zwykle jasne piwo bez wiekszych wrazen.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: faint herbs and corn. The taste is similar with some mild citrus and something honey-like. However, nice balance of hops and malt. Mild and interesting yeasty flavour. Very subtle and nice. I am not familiar with the style, but as a random beer from the (Swedish) bottle shop, this is one of the better ones that ticks quite a few boxes.

Kicsi, tartós hab, szőke szín. Gabonás, gyümölcsös illat. Lágeres, kissé száraz, malátás, enyhén fűszeres íz. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Nagyipari jellegű helles.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fairly standard funky Euro-lager, better than its Dutch cousins but still not a great German lager by any means. Nose is all icky Euro-lager skunkiness, green and pungent and off-putting, but the pour’s nice, a mellow, clear gold with a frothy white head and modest lacing. Taste offers up a modest amount of lager goodness, some apple-wheat sweetness mixing with floral hops, but still seems somewhat watered down and weak. Texture’s good, I guess. Eh.

Part of my random picks at LCBO. No expectations, no knowledge. I had a hard time rating it, between 2.6 and 3.4...

Bottle at Reading BF 2017. Clear gold lasting white head. i can’t believe I’ve never had this. Cereal aroma with some lemon. Clean basic lemon Munich beer. It’s ok but mostly its carbonation lemon cereal and a little empty. Not great clean though.
