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.

Serving type: can

Portugal

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
