Tap @ the brewpub, Vienna.
Pours hazy golden with an impressive, white head. Good lacing. Aroma is weak, lightly toffee notes and some flowery hops. Medium carbonation, quite full mouthfeel. Flavour has quite a lot of butter and finishes of okay with some good German hoppiness.

Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 14, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2012 Draft at the brewpub. Misty golden body. Dry grainy eggy nose. Soft flowery taste, simple, soft, nice. 6/3/6/3/13

Bottle, courtesy of and shared with ozujsko whose gf brought it from Wien (thanks!)
Poured a misty apricot-golden colour with a medium-big sized thick white head that went away slow. The nose was... odd. Rice crackers. The taste was a huge letdown. Rie crispies & hay. Almost nothing else. Weak, kinda odd hopiness, some weak malt presence. Blah. Not impressive at all. A bad batch? I sure hope so because this is dull and definitely not what I expected from the brewer of that great Rauchbier. 5/3/4/2/9

Rune (9340) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2007
300ml at the brewpub in Vienna and a 500ml flip-top bottle (bb.02.01.2008) brought back home and enjoyed at winter solstice in Tromsø. Pours a white, mostly lasting head resting on a slightly foggy, amber body. Pale malty aroma with hints of citrus. Flavour is a mix of malt and dry, lemony hops with notes of wheat. Refreshing. Well bodied for a helles. Some oily hints to the palate (Wien 02.12 and Tromsø 22.12.2007).

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Yellow colored, slightly hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Strongly yeasty and lemony aroma, still this good, handmade-yeasty touch comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor is also nice with some yeasty-flowery tone, lemon also there. Aftertaste dries, though this wasn’t very sweet even in start.

TBone (14174) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Draught@brewpub, Vienna
Slightly hazy golden color, small white head, lace. Light grassy hoppy aroma. Light citric hops, lemony aftertaste. Quite hoppy for being typical "helles" - more like pils. Drinkable.

asheft (2705) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2007
[on tap at brewpub] Very fruity aroma (very non-Hellesesque), which partially masked some DMS; strawberry apricot. Notes of pine and maybe some malt too. Almost clear beer with an orangey-yellow colour and nice, white lace. Quite a bit of pine in the flavour along with plum and significant strawberry. Crisp malt flavour as well, with appropriate level of bitterness. Interesting, but unbalanced. Light body, medium carbonation, and would be clean if not for a lasting strawberry fruitiness.
