3/5  rDev -10.2%

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 14:39S0622. AROMA: clean grainy malt aroma with faint hop notes. APPEARANCE: gold color and translucent. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: dry flavor with medium-low bitterness. no hop flavours and some faint grain swetness. dry finish. clean lager profile. PALATE: light body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a thirst quenching german pale lager with a more dry profile than usual. not so bad.

This beer’s name might be a gimmick but overall it is not bad. It has a very transparent gold color with a lot of carbonation to the body. It is extremely frothy with almost a pure white head. The aroma is a bit sweet with strong tones of grassiness. The flavor is slightly sharp but somewhat grassy with soap tones. The mouthfeel is thin and easy to drink. Although there is a lot of carbonation it barely noticeable in feel.

White gold with lumpy, steady white froth. Clean cut hay and some grassy hops on the nose.
White pan malts, some soap and a metallic tang with mild coriander hops.
Herbal finish and spicy linger. Light, soft, thin.

This beer caused a bit of a fuss a few years ago, not for any perceived obscenity (which the EU decided wasn't the case) but because the name suggests it's a Helles from the town of Fucking, Austria when in fact it's made by some random German brewery.

There's the makings of a good German lager here, with surprising bursts of hops spice especially as it warms, but it's toned down to the point of being limpid, which allows a definite tinniness come out. Watery, and needs more snap. Nothing to transcend the gimmick of the label.
