Clear golden with a lovely textured head that recedes fast. Smell is full of grain, sweet malts and hops, with a hint of lemon peel. Quite a malt bomb for a lager, with hops balancing the sweetness and adding bitterness for a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, which make for a good drinkability. Smooth, crisp, refreshing and tasty.

Not the finest of the Helles, but still a lager with lots of character and very well balanced. The one the likes of Heineken should look to.
