Served cool from 500ml brown bottle into straight glass.

L) Light to medium golden colour, hardly any bubbles, thin film, no head. Clear. Lack of bubbles concerns me straight away.

S) Very faint lager malt. Way off compared to a good Munich Hell.

T) Quite a deep malty flavour, no bitterness and hops are not quite right. A bit of a soda-y lightness.

F) Light carbonation, no bitterness. Easy drinking.

O) Sub-par Hell, there are dozens better you can buy.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has bread crust and a bit of honey. Taste is slightly sweet at first but gets balanced in the finish. Seems quite legit for a Helles but I would prefer it less sweet.

Half litre bottle, poured into oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Pale golden, clear,
two finger head which faded fairly quickly without leaving much lacing. S: Initial
malt and honey gave way to citrus. T: Slight orange, malty sweetness, hint of
charcoal at the finish. M: Crisp, light body, carbonation faded slightly. O: Nice,
uncomplicated for a summers’ day, only downside was that it lost a bit of life.

Slightly sour aroma and taste, but very bread-like.Color is clear gold with light foam and faintly carbonated. Mouth feel is almost watery. Average at best...

.5L emptied into a pokal.

A: Pours a light amber with a pure white 1-finger head which quickly disappeared. Good lacing thoughout.

S: Faint whiff of noble hops with a fresh citrus aroma. Nothing outstanding, but solid.

M: Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation.

T: No surprises here, with the barley malt at the fore, Saaz hops round the middle and again a twinge of fresh citrus, slightly sweet. Very smooth, with a refreshingly light aftertaste that contains just a touch of hops.

D: A nice drinking beer, nothing out of the ordinary for a Munich-style Helles, but certainly worth trying.

well this is a fairly inoffensive Munich type Helles pouring a very crisp clear yellow with some bright white head.
It is true ton the style albeit far off the very best ones and its taste whilst in the right style is too faint overall to score a high rating nice mouthfeel and high drinkability like most munich style Helles though
