Pours a light golden color with an inch of fizzy head. Coriander, spice, banana and clove smells. Fizzy and uneventful flavor with a mild finish.

graziano85 (445) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 19, 2017
Blond color with a medium compact head, getting smaller but staying. Aroma is malt and grassy hops. Taste is malty, nice, with a correct bitterness for a helles. Dry finish. They are famous for the weizen beers, but now I know they also have a good helles.

Barwa słomkowa. Piana biała, gęsta, drobna, oblepia szkło. Aromat słodowy. W smaku bardzo orzeźwiające. Nie jest to perełka piwowarska ale udany lager.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma was skunky corn. The taste was the same. There was a bitterness to it. I dont get the fascination with this one.
