Served in a Hefeweizen glass, it pours a very clear, translucid yellow with a big foamy head with excellent retention. Lots of carbonation visible in the glass.

The smell is malty sweetness, almost like honey; hints of bread, biscuity.

The taste is very clean and follows the nose. Crisp and a very slight herbal note. Soft and long finish. Nice carbonation. Very refreshing.

A good München Helles.

Nice lager on a hot day, my choice of top class lawn mower beer or after downing a plate of hot wings. Crispy and tangy, goes down frighteningly easy

Clear, light yellow. Crisp, citrusy, light. A bit watery. Not bad.

Fairly pedestrian lager beer, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It hits all the notes you'd expect, is clean & crisp, maybe a bit thin on the mouthfeel but that is really the only negative, outside of its anonymous taste profile.

Great beer. If I see this on tap then its a must buy. Locally I only know of 2 places that carry it on tap. I have purchased it in bottle but It seems to not do it for me.

Overall I highly recommend this one. Great starter if you arrive late and want to catch up to your friends lame-o beers lol.
