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 (11905) - 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 (2443) - 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.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 (Draught at the brewpub) Malty, grainy, hoppy (slightly grassy) aroma. Golden colour, hazy and white, large head with good lacing. Malty, grass-hoppy and grainy flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate.16/05/07 ******* Original rating (6/3/7/3/13): (Bottle BB 30/05/07; ABV 4.5%; Thanks Jay!) Pronouncedly malty and slightly grainy aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Golden colour, hazy and average size, white head with fair lacing. Pronouncedly malty, grainy, grassy and slightly sweet flavour. Light to medium-bodied, smooth and softly carbonated palate. Top quality helles! 26/04/07

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2007
on tap at the brewpub. faintly hazy straw colour with decent lacing. aroma of lychee and lemonade. surprisingly bitter, quite grainy with a slight metallic tinge in the finish. pretty good for the style, better than most of the crappy helles they brew in bavaria

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2007
[On draught at the brewpub] Hazy pale yellow colour. Flowery, earthy Saaz nose. Very dry and papery bitter. Bit sourish. Notable bitterness. Does not taste much. One dimensional. Bit fruity. Pronounced malt profile.

Geiserich (3104) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 18, 2004

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 On tap at 7SternBrau, Wien (with Geiserich). Pale straw beer with everlasting head. Light lemony flavours with a distinctive hop character. Mid malty biscuit note, but an unfortunate tea back note. Still a pretty decent Helles to finish a pretty decent night.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2004
Very good pale, dry, citrussy beer with lots of lemony hops and a good long bitter finish. Top supping beer. (Draught at Siebensternbräu, Vienna)
