Pours a nice pale yellow color. head is medium with low retention and low lacing. Smell is rich, complex, high presence of sweet barley malt. I am pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed it. It is a very good lager beer. I can buy it again without hesitate

500ml slim brown bottle, at 4.9%abv.; BB 21/06/09, served lightly-chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: pours a golden hue with lively carbonation full of large bubbles, while the cottony white head sustains well; overall, looking overly fizzy.
S: an assertive note of lemony sourness typical of a lager bier comes on top of a mildly plastic note, floral hops, and a soothing backbone of grainy/nutty/honey-ish lager malts. Not bad, but there's nothing to write home about apart from the standard performance.
T: the pretty effervescent foretaste shows a decent honey-ish malty backbone behind random lemon syrup, but the hoppy edge comes rather timid in terms of aroma and bitterness; the finish is only slightly dry, not as crisp and clean as a German Helles or even Pilsner. It's more like an overall richer Czech Pilsner to me, for the malty elements are almost as rich as Moravian malts as in most Czech Lezak. Alas, the level of hop-bitterness doesn't stand up to the other elements in this beer, and the finishing touch is not integrated at all.
M&D: not too fizzy, yet the carbonation disappears on the palate rather abruptly; while the body remains medium, the overall mouthfeel gears slightly to the syrupy side. All in all, this is to me like a hybrid of Dortmunder and Czech Svetle Lezak as the malt dominates the profile on top everything else. An OK beer.

50cl bottle poured into seidel.

A- Dark blonde colouring, 3 finger rocky head that disappates quickly but with good lacing. Beading is lively

S- Sweet lightly toasted malt, faint hop bitterness.

T- Malt sweet backbone blends to a faint hop bite in the finish, all a bit subtle. Feeling like im having to hunt for the flavour yet its not watery.

M- Moderate to low carbonation, a little syrupy.

D- Pretty bland helles, a bit lifeless. Certainly drinkable but no interesting unique notes or real helles refreshment value.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Deep golden color, quite dark. Strong carbonation, with big bubbles. A soapy and bubbly foam.
In the smell, a malty base, with some wet hay, and metalic notes.
At the taste a normal maltiness, again wet hay, a bit stale.
Useless.
On the positive side, there is some bitterness in the aftertaste, and it is almost drinkable.
