rikstar (2130) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2016
0,5l fles gedeeld in München geel met een witte kraag. Geur en smaak mooi in balans beetje herbal hop. Verder niet heel spannend

bartlebier (3350) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2016
Multiple out-of-context 50cl bottles and at source gravity pours each February, Munich. - The quintessential large-scale yet still privately owned Bavarian Helles sets a standard for humble sessionability-by-dryness: crisp pale malts with a fresh biscuit crunch, a sane helping of lemonade Hallertauers and a clean bitter finish. - The Lederhosen-clad young hordes prowling the streets come armed with this bottle and provincial manicheistic wars are fought over Augustiner vs. Tegernseer, but donot hold this against this classic: as DE or US craft brewers alike aspire to reach this level of supraregional sessionability, this remains a solid standard.

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2016
Aroma: crowded, dirty central station in the summer... Obviously I am a little negatively biased, since this is the most common beer around where I live, and you smell it everywhere, even if you don’t want to. Taste: mostly bitter, some aggressive hops. Palate: exactly like water. Overall: Boring, too widespread, I already had enough of this one.

anstei (1070) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle. A regular dirty industrial lager. Nothing stands out good or bad, it’s just boring.

rherperss (11) - Hamburg, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2016
Sweet tasting Helles, low bitterness, low carbonation. Easy to drink its main advantage.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Vignale (3270) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2016
Flaska från SBs beställningssortiment. Gyllengul, klar, högt vitt skum. Doft av nygräddat bröd, smör, milda örter, mandel, blomsteräng. Friskt, lätt och väldigt drickvänligt, mjuk munkänsla och snälla smaker. Men också väldigt nyanserat. Smakbilden liknar doften, relativt torr, låg beska. Mycket sympatiskt och väldigt gott.

Schlumpfhunter (129) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
Farbe: gold Schaum: top, sehr fein, etw sämig, bleibend Nase: leicht nach Gerste und Hopfen, leicht zitronig Geschmack: sprudlig sauer auf der Zunge, dann kommt der Hopfen mehr durch. Richtung Nachgeschmack wirds mehr gerstig. Hm ich tu mich bei Hellen gemerell eher schwer den Geschmack zu beschreiben, "schmeckt wie Bier". Augustiner machts besonders schwer: der Trick warum das nach zig hundert Flaschen mit dem Tegernseer mein liebstes Helles ist liegt in der Ausgewogenheit und hier speziell in der Milde. Man merkt einfach, dass die sich beim Rösten & co mehr Mühe geben. Im Ergebnis mild aber nicht langweilig, ein eigener Geschmack ohne zu kantig oder seltsam abgefahren für jeden Tag zu sein. Geht’s noch besser?

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
On draught. A very refreshing and easy drinking beer. Light in colour and very clear. Slight grassyness, and even slighter citrus aroma and taste. Crisp.

WhatDaddy (64) - Volos, GREECE - JAN 17, 2016
0,5lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos Greece as well at Augustiner in Munich from tap. THE standard for a traditional "Helles". Golden clear, medium carbonation, easy to drink, enjoyable. A little bit sweet malt and hidden a smal hop crisp. Very balanced, nice beer, that shows it do not need to be overpowered to enjoy.
