A benchmark for the style, great drinkability, you never get tired of it. Aroma is bread, hay, floral and doughy; taste is medium sweetness, with a light bitterness.

50cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head with low retention. Malts and floral hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Overall, a nice drinkable beer but not remarkable.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1D). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L2013151K. AROMA: grainy sweet aroma with very faint hop notes. some DMS is present. no esters or diacetyl. APPEARANCE: medium yellow color and translucent. thin moussy white head with low retention. TASTE: sweet and clean malt flavour that lingers into the aftertaste. very low bitterness. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a watered down helles that lacks the bitterness to balance a little the sweet malt profile.

"One of the top 5 in style I’ve had. Very pleasant and flavorful malty backbone. Sweet, but not cloying or plastic tasting. The aroma is malty as well, with just a hint of floral hops. Nicely done, and was even enjoyed after some big boys - which made the fact it was enjoyed that much more impressive."

rgf001 (148) - München, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2014
Bought and tasted in Munich (ie, fresh) Color and appearance: light gold, a bit darker than a Helles with good carbonation and with a two-finger head when poured in a narrow 250cc tulip. Smell: More like a good pilsner than like a helles. Taste: very easy to drink, with enough hop and Munich malt flavors not to feel too watery, good light-hop aftertaste. This is a great beer for biergarten drinking, but it does not look like a beer that would travel well. Cheers!

Bottle. Light golden colour, clear. Thin white head, disappearing quickly to nothing. Medium carbonation. Aroma of hops and malt, quite bland. Taste is better, good balance of sweet and bitter, but fades fast. Overall a quite refreshing and easy to drink beer, but distinctly average on the taste and aroma fronts.

Draught at the Munich beer house. Clear bright gold with a dense white head. Bready aroma, clean crisp slightly sweet flavour. Sparkling carbonation, medium bodied, refreshing and tasty. Pretty much what I hoped for, and the wife liked it too.
