3.64/5 rDev -6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from the bottle into a pilsner style glass.
Real looker. A bit hazy and cloudy partially with a super brass light lemon shiny color. Supper slow rising carbonation mixed with some long glowing rising carbonation. The head forms with wonderful pin head and bright white color. It's tall, large and foamy with a good sized cap and leaves a nice dolloped whipped cream appearance with ring lacing. Real impressive.
Nice light doughy malts, but some sweetbread like sweetness to match. White sugar. A little bit of a spicy herbal hop bent but also tuned down a bit with the sweet malt profile dominating. Has some sticky doppel like character to it as well. Pretty good.
Palate hits with a nice thick malt feel. Good mix of light sugars and sticky quality but with a nice grass herbal hop bent. Subdued and tamed though, with a good feel and sticky coating. The palate flavors don't last though, which is odd since the beer has a good coating effect that seems to get into every crevice of your mouth. Plain sweetness just seems to take over, without any grain or malt pleasantness.
Overall it's not bad, but feels quite dumbed down. No worries though, it can do in a pinch.

3.98/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving type: 500 ml bottle. There are cryptic notches corresponding to numbers and letters on the back label but no discernable freshness date.
Appearance: Poured into a pilsner glass. The color is reminiscent of lemonade and is a touch hazy. Two fingers of buttery, eggshell-colored head dissipated to leave a thin layer of foam.
Smell: The first whiff is very vinous and reminds me a lot of champagne. However, it thankfully fades (or maybe it was just me) to reveal sweet helles grassiness and pale malts. There is a little herbal spice, like grass gone to seed, but the grassiness and pale malts dominate. Very simple.
Taste: Crisp and malty with a nice, grassy hop bite to coat the mouth — exactly what I would expect from a helles. Very simple and clean.
Drinkability: This is simple yet very tasty stuff. It is what it is. Frankly, it is kind of quintessential.
