look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep, clear gold with a creamy white head. The head has only the barest retention, slightly hanging on around the circumference of the glass and leaving no lacing. The aroma has nice bready malt with hints of earthy hops. The taste is similar, but with just a really good depth to it. It's not complicated, it's just good. The body is not too heavy but has a satisfying weight to it and a light hops bite on the finish. Always a good lager.

3.5/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear yellow, ok head.

Smell: Mildly sweet bread.

Taste: Sweet corn flavor with a bit of grassy hop to balance it out.

Overall: Beer #3 from the Paulaner mix pack. A solid helles lager, nice balanced flavor and easy to drink. Worth a try if you want a traditional German lager.

I have had this beer many times and I figured I would finally give it my review.

The beer poured very nicely into a tall glass with very little head. This beer had a nice smell and the drink was very smooth. Lacing on the glass was apparent after the first couple of sips but quickly diminished.

The only thing I disliked about this brew was the aftertaste. It wasn't necessarily a bad aftertaste. It just wasn't as smooth as some of the other beers I have had from Paulaner.

Overall, this is a delicious beer. The smell is nice, the taste is nice, and it is another one of those beers that I can drink all evening long without feeling the need to switch to a different type.
