2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy gold from the bottle. The head soon fades but a thin whispy film lingers. Aroma is musty, herbal, grassy. Taste is earthy, lightly sweet, but also a bit blank. Not much going on here. Okay in a pinch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Schaum: kräftig, beständig
Nase: spülmittel-hopfig grasig
Geschmack: ausgewogen zw bitter und sauer, eher mild und wenig kanten, recht viel süße vor allem im Abgang, da auch ein bisschen Getreide, Säure kommt wieder im Nachgeschmack durch.
Gut, aber zu nett, eher weniger wie ein helles, hat eher was von fest- und sommerbier.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rather big white head on a birght yellow hazy sparkling fluid. Aroma is almost nothing. A bit mustyness and light fruity hops. Taste is better, a slim hoppy bitterness and some hints of fruity (peach?) sweetness. Has quite a large amount of carbonation but without being aggressive and filling your mouth, without being heavy. Refreshing I would say. Long finish with the same taste as before. Overall good and nice to drink, but the aroma was a big disappointment.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
May ’15. On tap at the brewpub. It poured hazy yellow body with medium sized head. Weak aroma, a bit boring homebrew yeast and grain. Flavor lightly bitter, chalky, bread/grain malt. Rather fine. Medium to thin bodied with long finish. Okay, a tad too yeasty, but decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at source and 50cl bottle bb06/2016. - Bref: atypical Münchner Helles, typically sweetish brewpub Helles aka unfiltered Keller with a modern, faint hop touch. Specifically bottled a sweet an earthy yeast nose of wet pasture and yellow kiwi. Tastes a tad too sweet and yeast-lieblich for my Helles sessioning needs, while offering new and more contemporary hop modes of Lieblichkeit in flavour: powder sugar, yellow kiwi, vanilla, corn. Textured notes of grain and cereal in the finish. Makes its modern mark in the scene well enough.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a vibrant, hazy, pale golden color, with a huge, pillowy head, which won’t collapse at all.
Smells of peas, wet leaves, grass and a note of whole grain bread. Offers a pleasant yeast sourness, gently soothed by a toffee malt quality.
Drinks incredibly smooth with a vivid, refreshing finish, while the beer remains its refreshing character.
Tastes of straw covered garden herbs, together with a salty hint, gently blending into earthy, slightly toffeeish malts. Develops an awesome dryness, with its herbs providing an unforseen depth, perfectly complimented by more potent turning toffee malts. The flavors remains in an earthy, herbal array, allowing malts and the bubbly carbonation to cut through, developing an enjoyable depth. Finish simple but effective with a far going herb dryness, caressed by earth coated malts.
Perfectly composed Kellerbier, featuring a neat hop punch, finding its balance flawlessly in the diversified malt bill. Very crushable with an utmost enjoyable flavor profile to it.
