Pale colour but not quite as pale as other Helles, clear with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma was Munich style malts with a hint of grass. Tasted Munich malts, slightly tart, finish was sharp and slightly grainy, hint of roasted malt at the very end. Well carbonated, crisp with a slightly coarse edge. Good refreshing hot weather beer but definitely not a Bock, it's a Helles.

A very pale colour with short lived loose head but laces glass all the way down. Smells a little grassy, summer days in a park. Tastes very smooth, sweet & malty. Feels sticky and warming, not what I expected from such a light looking beer. Quaffable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours a old golden color with a steady stream of carbonation and a fast collapsing head.

Smell is malty with a doughy smell and some biscuity and slightly husky whiffs.

Taste is fresh and sizzling, with a medium malt backbone, which has some honey and doughy charactaristics. There is not as much bitter as I expected and the usual German sulfuric yeast components are not present. Mouhfeel is slightly sticky and I more or less tastes more like a non-German pilsner to me.

Decent flavor, but a bit sour on the tail end. All the right notes for a helles, smells right , looks right, but aftertase is just a little off. Still refreshing on a summer’s day, but ther are better to be had
