This is a medium yellow, clear beer that pours easily, small head with big bubbles that fades slowly. The smell was heavy of grape and plum, a bit like wine but sweeter. The taste is a like honey, malts, hops and a bit of grape. Very faint hops. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, and very easy to drink. Good! Perfect for a casual, sunny, laid-back afternoon of beer.

Good mid-range beer. Some character and nuance on taste.
/////////
Hyvä keskitason olut. Maussa on luonnetta ja vähäistä vivahdetta.

This helles has a bit of an edge, a sharp hoppy bitterness. Pours clear golden with short foamy head. Sparse carbonation. Aroma is malt and a touch of citrus. Taste is crackers, sourdough, hops and lemon. After working all day on a hot day, this tastes pretty darn good.

500ml brown glass bottle purchased at a Maxima hypermarket in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Somewhat honeyed, with an unremarkable light malt backbone and generic hopping.

Drinkable albeit forgettable schlock.

C- (2.57) / BELOW AVERAGE

Looks like a nice hefe; cloudy yellow with an above average citrus and wheat smell. Taste is a little weak and carbonated for my taste but not bad.

There is a lot of good beer to be had in Germany...this isn't one of them. Despite the nice looking bottle, inside is something unremarkable. A thin euro-lager, this has only some weak malt/grain on the nose, a thin palate with a touch of off flavors, and a finish that is not particularly pleasant to me. Sorry, there is too much good beer to try this again.

A mild and creamy helles with a hint of sweetness at the end. Beautiful, massive, white head.

A lovely companion for summer heatwaves.

Refreshing beer with lingering sweet aftertaste. Great label art work and that German clip and plastic cork to open.

Looks golden in colour.
Grainy sweet inviting smell.
Tastes of sweet grain, slight bittersweet finish.
Mouth feel is good as the carbonation is low and it's smooth.
Overall really enjoyable lager and would definitely buy again.

500ml bottle as seen in the pic. liked the artwork. Bought from Lamb’s Thriftway in Wilsonville OR. $4.59 Pours a clear golden colour with an initially large frothy white head. That fades down fast but leaves OK lace. Ok biscuity,malty aromas. Some sweet floral hop and a touch of dough. Not that bad really. Smooth malty semi-sweet taste..leaves a tinge of the hop in the last of the gulp. KInda weak compared even to the aroma. Its OK in the mouth.. bout average for style. OK drink, not the best but I can drink this
