Slovenia

4.25/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours pale golden with brilliant clarity capped by meringue-white low to medium head that creates patches of lace sliding down the sides until it rapidly drops to a fine veil.

Nose is light Pils malt sweetness with discernible DMS aroma reminiscent of cooked vegetables such as German turnip. I'm barely capable of picking any hops underneath, nor there are any inappropriate buttery notes or esters.

The taste is clean, slightly sweet Pils malt. Although the malt gets supported by low hop-bitterness the flavor remains malty until the abrupt clean finish.

Medium body with moderate carbonation is crispy yet simultaneously smooth and polished.

Overall, malt-accentuated but not too sweet immensely drinkable Munich Helles that is a true benchmark of the style. I haven't even noticed when the bottle went dry (500 ml, BB end 01-2013, into chalice).

Serving type: bottle

3.46/5  rDev -16.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a standard pint glass.
Best before: August 2014

Look: A pale yellow/gold colour, a lot of carbonation, a little foamy head at first which disappears almost immediately

Smell: Has a rather sour smell of maybe lemons, grass and hops

Taste: It is very dry, not bitter at all. Sour taste, too, but not inconvenient. You can definitely taste the hops. At the end it tastes quite bitter.

Feel: Stays on the tongue and leaves a convenient, dry feeling

Overall: A very refreshing summer lager. Wouldn't want to drink too many of them but still very recommendable.

Serving type: bottle
