A bright export beer, sparkling and fresh at the same time, brewed with noblest raw materials. This high-class product of the Old Bavarian brewing art. A great treat for every beer expert. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops.

[bottle] Excellent malty aroma that isn’t heavy on the noble hops like most of the stuff I’ve been getting around here lately. Bright gold with a patchy top that is repleneshed by effervescence. As the aroma suggested, the balance in this beer is towards the pale malt--very nice, though the sweetness is a bit too unencumbered by hops bitterness. I would like this beer to have a touch more bitterness but retain the subdued hops flavour. Medium body, medium carbonation, just a touch too sweet (or not bitter enough) to be crisp.

bottle - Aroma is of wheat and grass with a hint of yeast, very carbonated with a small head, very weak tasting with a mown grass finish, nothing special

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 21, 2007
Drank at the Bull and Castle in Dublin as part of their beer challenge. Poured a copper color with a thick foamy white two-finger head that smelled sweet with a bit of hoppiness too. A bit of hoppiness and bitterness with a touch of honey (I think) and in general it was a smooth beer that I could drink more of throughout the day. I havent tasted many helles lager beers before so unfortunately I cant compare this to many other of this style.

Pretty disgusting: reminded me of Dab. Tasted like a bale of straw, which is not very pleasant!

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2007
A Sim rate (bottle at Quinns): Aroma is very bland; almost none existant with slight sweet pils malts. Malty, barley flavour. Not quite as uneventful as the aroma but still pretty poor. Pils, pils, pils.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 23, 2007
Decent enough lager. Falls short of anything fantastic due to its overly clumsy flavor of budweiser and a bit of booze. Enjoyed on tap at a very nice bar in Bereguardo, Italy.

Bottle, Chef Paul’s, Lisle IL. Was expecting something better...Might have gotten a bad bottle. Nice foamy head, but it smelled off and the aftertaste was musty / old.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2010 500ml bottle at Man of Kent, Rochester. Pale gold colour with thin white head. Some niceish malt. Citrus noble hops are good too. Hops are pretty good on end, no pukey malt. Clean, crisp and rather good. One of the better Helles I’ve had. Crisp, but also some depth of flavour and feel as well. 3.4. Now one of my favourite all time lagers. Proper pilsner with good hop, so smooth and clear and clean in taste superb and I would always want a crate of this in my house.. 858417 4.2/5 On tap at Reading BF 2010, so fresh creamy, hoppy, I loved this. So clean and fresh and drinkable. Stunning.
