3.7/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Served cool from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Medium golden colour, clear, very fizzy, fluffy 3cm white head, dissipates down to 2cm.

S) Lagery malts and yeast. Nothing out of the ordinary.

T) A bit thin on the malt flavour, although it is noted that this is 4.7%, a bit lighter ABV than most Helles. No bitterness as per the style. There's nothing actively unpleasant in the taste, it ust doesn't have the nice depth of malty flavour that I like in a Helles.

F) Fizzy, clean mouth feel, very easy drinking.

O) Perfectly drinkable lager, just not in the Bundesliga of Helles. There are many better versions of the style, I've got a feeling that this would be a very cheap supermarket version in Germany.

3.25/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear, dark golden colour, with quite a weak head.

Smells very yeasty and light.

Tastes ok, malty and yeasty again, same depth of flavour as you'd expect, except for an overwhelming, slightly unpleasant tangy sweetness.

Overall an okay beer, not great but not awful either.
