1.75/5  rDev -40.7%

Review notes based on the BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: DMS dominates the grain, malt and hop aroma. No spicy hop aromas present. Appearance: Pale orange with poor head and poor retention. Taste and palate: Very thin body, with a low malty palate. No hop flavour and no fruity esters present. Very low carbonation and no adstringency. Overall: a very poor example of a Helles.

look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clean transparent yellow and with almost no carbonation, even with my insistence to get some head, it disappeared right way. No lacing, no thickness, no head.
S: I can smell a noble beer. Pear and peach, mixed together with a beautiful german yeast.
T: A slightly hoppy with a bit of peach.
M: Way too low carbonation, it tends to heat during the mouth and even though you can feel some cool bitterness, your mouth won't get dry.

O: It's a noble beer. It's sad to have this beer like this because I've had it before with some awesome carbonation. Maybe the long troubled trip resented the beer on its quality.
