Very solid beer, with good flavor and mouthfeel. Well balanced on its own, but I found that it was a bit too bitter when eating with food. Could enjoy a glass by itself but won't order with a meal again.

341 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 1/13/2018. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit fruity/yeasty, but not overwhelming. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy hop bitterness on the finish. An odd touch of metal that went away through the glass. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Nicely clean on lager flavors, minimal fruity/yeasty notes. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a good Helles. All around good robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV, but a little weird on mouthfeel. Nothing but clean pils malts and solid noble hop balance. A nicely enjoyable offering, and great style example.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: poured with slight white foam, hardly classifiable as "head", very clear and very light colour (3-5 SRM?), low moderate carbonation.

Smell: Typical lager smell, grassy, grainy, slight malt sweetness

Taste: Akin to smell, with some spice, possibly ethanol, slightly herb-y.

Feel: Thin, moderate carbonation, slightly alcoholic, dry.

Overall: I am worried I got a bad batch (for $11AUD it makes sense) but this was underwhelming. Okay, not bad, but nothing more.
