Ottakringer Helles: Imported in a friends carry on bag right from Austria, in a half liter can. Pours a pale yellow, with a bright white head, kind of soap foamy. Bit of skunk in the aroma, not too much else. The taste is what youd expect from a macro-euro lager: slight skunk taste, weak grainy adjunct taste. Extremely light bodied, and very easy to drink. Not a lot of taste, very clean aftertaste. Do not bother going to Viena to pick one up.
Serving type: can

3.29/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Interesting. The lower ABV version exported to East Asia is better. It's more mellow. This has too much of that Euro lager harshness.
A: Soft white head with a yellow straw-coloured body which is perfectly clear.
S: Creamy vanilla, grainy but not metallic, has a snappy sherbet quality.
T: Has a slightly harsh grain flavour coupled with a delicate tartness and a soft fruit salad aftertaste. It's ever so slightly sweet and a bit too bitter. The grain profile reminds me a lot of wheatgerm.
M: A soft effervescence coupled with a creaminess that really frames the mellow flavours.
O: Again, not half as enjoyable as its cheaper exported counterpart.

3.58/5 rDev +17%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Cloudish yellow brew with little to no head. Non perceived effervescence.
Smell: Medium high in intensity. Smells unmistakenly of noble hops. Notes of honey, grass, flowers.
Taste: Hoppier than other hellers i've had (it's more of a dortmunder anyway in my opinion). The malt notes are noticeable but still overwhelmed by the hops. Notes of cooked peas, grass, flowers.
Palate: Medium high carbonation. M;edium low bodied. Medium to medium high. Within style guidelines and enjoyable.
Overall: Not my favourite style ever, but nonetheless this a decent examplar. The score reflects personal taste more than it does objective to-style analysis.
Serving type: bottle
