I have to mention the can which is one of the most attractive I've seen. Beautiful duck egg blue with great old style lettering and lion symbol. And the gold gives it a touch of class... even in a can.
Pale straw appearance with thin head but good lacing lasting to the end of the drink. Good carbonation in a tall pilsener glass.
Smell is very mild. A hint of hops and some lemon and honey just about detectable.

The taste is very well balanced and super easy drinking. There is, however, just enough herbal hop bitterness and lemony sweetness to make this beer recognisable as a helles lager.

A very subtle but well made German beer with less bitterness than pilseners.

I rate this 78/100
