On Tap @ the brewpub. The head is medium. It tastes special malty, flowery. Medium-ok. 11/8/9/9/-/9

Marko (4348) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy, lovely golden body with an off white head. Pretty much no aroma, maybe some light huskiness? Hay & eggs? Crappy light beety taste. The mouthfeel is nice, mind you, but there’s not much to it overall and I’m quite sure that all four of us who were there considered it to be by far the worst of the bunch.

Ernest (6834) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Draught at Altstadthof. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a STRONG note of butter/diacetyl, light note of soured fruit. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. An absolute butter bomb. Horrible.

TaktikMTL (6474) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
En fût. Verre de 200 ml dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de céréales avec une pointe d’Houblons. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales et d’houblons avec une pointe fruitée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #3851)

bottle from the brewery. very little head (too young?). clear golden pour. Quite drinkable but not out of this world

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Sweetish bready malts and herbal hops play around an engaging fluffy mouthfeel for a pleasant session lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A clinging veil of foam can be seen even when the beer reaches the bottom of the krug.
-Apart from the fact this was served in a ceramic krug, this tasted and felt like a Kellerbier all the way. Good job!
-The malt profile is not as sophisticated or clearly defined as some of the best Helles I’ve had, but its rusticity is endearing.
-Herbal hops produce lenient bitterness.
-I felt like having a second pint of this Helles, which is exactly the point, right?.

On tap at the brewpub.

prawlie (1302) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
500 mL in a pot tankard at Altstadthof Hausbrauerei in Nurnberg. Fairly liquid head, looked quite dark but that was probably the effect of the tankard. Tastes more roasted than a normal helles. I was pretty indifferent to this.
