harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Hazy light amber. Quite buttery on the nose. Light body is vaguely malty, with a fair bit of diacetyl. The finish is actually more watery than anything else. Somewhat bland.

TBone (12566) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Golden color, creamy white head. Malty and lemony aroma. A bit sweet honeyish flavor. Barley mixed with grassy hops, leafy hoppy aftertaste. Light, but refreshing helles.

Koelschtrinker (10710) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Süffiger Antrunk, vollmundig hopfig und wenig hefig. Würzig-fruchtig im Mittelteil, was sich dem Hopfen aber unterordnet. Das Bier ist mittelintensiv, sehr harmonisch und stimmig. Überzeugendes Helles mit abwechslungsreichen Noten, vor allem im hellmalzigen Abgang. 9/11/11/12//11

imdownthepub (10326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2008
On tap at Altstadhof Brewpub, Nurnberg. Gold with white head. A helles with some character, fruity and peachy in my notes. Quite a heady aroma with the fruitiness following into the body. Grainy malt in the close, quite decent.

MartinT (7860) - 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.
