Probably the best helles I’ve had. Man, Andechs continues to deliver. Light golden pour, white head, nice lacing. Aroma of hay, sugary cereal, and lemon. Flavor is sublimely balanced. There is a solid sweetness hiding in there, but the lemony hops add just the right amount of bitterness to lend the brew a clean, refreshing finish. Despite the mild nature of the flavors involved (lemon, pale malty sweetness) this beer manages the be pretty flavorful. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Coats the tongue nicely. Good beer.

Gelbgolden klares Bier, sehr würziger Duft mit kräftigem Malzaroma. Geschmack weich aber würzig. Carbonisierung auf der Zunge spürbar aber nicht perlend oder schaumig. Leichte Bitterkeit im Nachgeschmack.

0.5L Bottle. Great Dortmunder! Full of flavour and easy to drink. The only problem with this beer is the pricing of it. A little to high...

München källaren under söder hbf, flaska. Fin helles. Ren till smak skarp och torr. Inte ett uns av Arbogasyndromet. Bättre än Edelstoff ? Torr !

Vignale (3256) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
Flaska från en liten öl- och vinbutik på Oranienstrasse, Berlin som jag glömt namnet på. Gyllengul, aningen disig, högt vitt skum. Doft av säd och litet brödkryddor. Kraftfull utan att bli spritig, mycket säd, lite kryddor, lätt sötma som bär en lätt fruktighet som balanseras av en kryddig beska med hö och örter. Bra balans. Gott.

Kita (1869) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 8, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, grainy, papery and slightly metallic. Taste starts light sweet grainy, following is grassy and medicinal, mouthfeel is spicy and dry, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Has got no characteristics to be astonished with them...

Bottle shared at home. Pale yellow, no head. Nice light hell, but nothing outstaning.

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2016
May. ’15. On tap at Andechser am Dom. Clear pale yellow bodied with medium sized head. Chalky and slightly lemony aroma. Hints of honey malt, too. Flavor was well balanced between lightly sweet and lightly bitter, but not thin, actually full bodied for the style and tasty. Fine, surprisingly long finish started herbal dry with more sweetness emerged towards the end. A very pleasant helles.
