Gutifa (135) - Bad Wurzach, - JAN 28, 2013
Golden colour with two fingers of white head. It looks perfect. Malty aroma, some bread and little bit hoppy. Light body and medium carbonation. Malty aroma and light bitter finish. Like a helles have to be!

ReggieDunlap (3073) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours clear golden with a thick foamy white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is mild and has very light grass and a mild minerally note. Flavor is very balanced between mild straw and slightly spicy/grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium / full and the finish is dry and crisp with lingering hoppiness. Very crisp, clean, refreshing.

Mainuh_man (127) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours clear pale with a frothy white head with minimal lacing. Clean malt aromas dominate, grass and cereal grains. Fairly strong sulfur also coming through, as well as herby hops. Mild cereal grain sweetness at the beginning, giving way to herby hop flavor, which morphs into a long, herbby hop linger. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a nice helles lager with good grain and hop character. A beer to keep around for when guests come!

rotaman14 (18) - Falkensee, Brandenburg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Süßliches Aroma, leicht florale Noten, ein ganz kleines Bisschen Hopfen. Sehr ausgewogener Geschmack, milder Hopfen, nicht zu bitter. Nett für Zwischendurch.

Malty, grassy aroma with nice hints of hops. Wet hop cones in mouth, some florals, herbs and bread peel. Pleasant bitter finish.

blackisle (704) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Bottle 50cl. Clear medium golden color, one finger frothy white head, recedes slowly to a thin layer, fair lacing; aroma sweet malty, grain, hay, yeasty; taste is moderate sweet and light bitter; medium body, oily texture, bit spicy on the tongue, soft carbonation; slightly more bitterness in the aftertaste, abrupt finish. OK helles though it lacks some character. Rerated 140917, slightly lower score (was 3.2).

jjsint (771) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Tap at GBBF ’14. Golden, clear, with the biggest white head I’ve ever seen. Almost no aroma. A bit of wheat and lemon typical of German lagers but that’s all. The taste is also slight. A gentle sweetness throughout, although there is the slightest touch of jarring bitter/sourness. The carbonation adds mouthfeel to the weak palette. Not bad, but surprisingly lacking in character. Shame.

Tap at gbbf. Pours yellow gold with a green edge. Popcorn, honey, lemon, toast, aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Lemon, light caramel, honey, light corn, apple... Crisp, fresh and tasty. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Gourmondo.de. Golden beer with white head. Aroma has malts, butter, hops and hay. Flavour is malty, quite sweet with hay and butter. Soft and a bit oily mouthfeel. Very good helles.
