No 641 19 12 2008 Bottle brown, 500 ml, Appearance pours deep, essential, full golden, slightly orangy body, body texture is hazy with some sediments in the body texture and texture strongly seems to be oily when you look through, head is initially huge, dense, snowy white, frothy, giving nice lacing, slowly decreasing to very small but keeping the lacing, carbonation is moderate, Aroma is moderate in its strenght, nice notes of grsnis, , malted barley, citrussy fresh hoppyness especially grapefruit, orange, fresh mashed grass, chalk, graphite, gently alcoholic background, apart from that hoppy profile is slightly flowery and gently sweet, kind of spicy, inviting, Flavour front is dusty, malty oriented at the beginning, than gentle bitterness from hops on palate and gentle alcoholic spicy taste, quite flat and neutral aftertaste being quite confusing as it is hard to judge if it is a good feater or not in that example, hoppyness becomes more and more present at the back of the tongue towards the middle of the beer, finish duration is quite neutral, hard to rate in general, Palate body is light, texture is oily, carbonation on palate is soft to medium, finish feel is very neutral, practically non existant, maybe slightly dusty and kind of dull or wattery, boring, the worst Helles Ive ever had and I had 7 of them

oldrtybastrd (3448) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2008
.5L Swing-Top bottle - Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

nuplastikk (5370) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2008
500ml bottle picked up at Stateline Liquors, MD. Slight haze in the golden-orange color. Minimal head. Malty, macro beer factory aroma. Definitely disappointing flavor-wise as well. Crisp initial mouthfeel quickly transforms into a malty sweet finish. A little yeasty subtlety in there, but not much...old bottle?

SkyCop32 (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2008
I had this one with Oldrtybastrd. This was good as most Helles are. Slightly hoppy with grain and an ease for drinkability. This is a simple but good beer.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2008
bottle. Clear golden yellow, large white head. Malty nose. Malty, hoppy, slightly grainy. It strongly reminds me of boooring eurolager as mady by many big German breweries. Inoffensive but without any character.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Tap. Pours a clear gold with your usual helles head. Nose is heavy floral hops with grain. Flavor is the same, with a nice, smooth malt aftertaste. Not bad at all.

Moosington (28) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Clear gold pour with standard lager head. Nose is very light and very floral. Flavor is mostly floral with minimal dry malty finish. Not my favorite.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
It’s a warm golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of flower and malt. The flavour has a light, smooth caramel sweetness, notes of flower, malt and it ends on a dry and slightly bitter note. It’s uncomplicated and charming.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2008
On tap at Maxs German Beer Fest. Hazy orange in color with a nice fluffy white head. Hoppy, grainy fruity aroma. Spicy hoppyy grassy flavor. Crisp and refreshing. Smooth tasting. Medium bodied. Finish is hoppy. Very drinkable. Nice beer.

Wal (5) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2008 does not count
There is something beautiful about a 8 year old german boy with a big old stein of beer on the label. All this rubbish about alcohol is bad for kids, the sooner they learn the more responsible they are with it! This beer has a dirty sour bitterness to it, almost a mustiness. almost like rolling up and smoking some of a mummy at the british museum. Deep amber colour bordering on piss. Feels like a beer and a cigarette at the same time, but leaves you with one free hand to scratch your balls.
