Served in a pint glass from a can.

Appearance: Gold color with medium bubbles on the body. White head maybe quitarte of an inch off the body.

Smell: Hope and light malts. Comes off an easy scent and but not that I dulling scent.

Taste: Smooth hops, easy to drink brew.

Mouth: Not sticky but very thirst quenching feel.

Overall: Beer three of my advent calendar and definitely not my favorite style of beer but still a product worth picking up.

Received this in a beer advent calendar. Great head, slow dissipation. No real aroma to speak of, but gave no indication of the flavor. The taste was mild and smooth, minimal bitterness. Clean taste and nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. At dinner, after futsal match, with chicken steaks and soup with potatoes and chickpeas. Dont know if its because of the exercise, but Ive really enjoyed it. Very drinkable and with a balanced and pleasant nose and taste. At the level of their superb pilsner.

Pale yellow color with medium retention head that dissipates leaving a somewhat persistent layer of bubbles on top of the beer throughout the drinking. Smell malty, crackery with faint grassy notes. A tiny citrous component as well. The taste is sweeter than expected, very malty, bready, almonds with a faint earthy component. Relatively persistent in the aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation and medium body. Pleasant.

Very clear pale yellow, it shows a decent white head with good retention and nice lacing. Clean in the nose, i smell grains, grass, lemon and a hint of honey. The taste is a blend of malts, hops and lemon which stays uniform all along, with only a little sweetness in the background. It finishes dry with almost no aftertaste. Crispy mouthfeel, thin to medium body and great drinkability.

A lighter Helles which i find it to be slightly on the hoppy side and finely complements other offerings from this brewery. It will pair great with a wide variety of foods.

A nice blend between the classic Helles malt profile and a non-offensive - but still slightly more pronounced - hop presence.

500ml bottle. Stange lager glass. Pale straw color, clear appearance. White froth creates close, small bubbled & lasting crown while leaves lacing & spots on sides. Sulfur, grainy & biscuit aromas. Crispy upfront shows slight citric zest notes. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Low bitterness but enough to balances maltiness. Citric bitter/sweet finish & dried aftertaste.
