Pours to a straw yellowwith a thin head that quickly disappeared to a tin pool in top. Good carbonation! LAcing on glass.
Smells like corn and a little skunky could be a little old.
Tastes a little skunky up front, after you are through that it is a nice clean taste of corn malts with slight bitterness.
Smooth and well balanced in the mouth!
A ok beer if it was the only thing avabile other than the US macro lager I would drink this.

Had a tall can of this well-known commercial example of a Munich helles lager in the classic blue and gold colors. This brew pours a lemon drop yellow with a massive amount of white head (unless you choose to mitigate this with your pouring technique, but this way you will get more of the aroma). Releases an aroma of pale green malt and bread yeast, smells sweet with a lot of fruity green grape character and a bit of a skunky sour tang. Palate is sweet white bread, bicarbonate of soda, apple, sour vines candy, grass, hay, and some white pepper spice. Maybe a subtle undercurrent of cherry pit which could very well be something I am inferring for an unknown reason. Fairly thin body and quite dry as per the style, but in all honesty I get a fair amount of sweetness here too that was detectable even by the non-beer geeks who accompanied me. Despite the massive billowing head, the beer was only moderately fizzy and perhaps I let much of the gas escape during the pour. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering green noble hop spicy bitterness that evokes melon rind. All in all, a pretty complex and tasty yet delicate brew that hits the right stylistic notes, even if it is a bit on the sweet side. I could detect no obvious flaws.
