JFGrind (1883) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pale light bodied Helles with malt sweetness and subtle bitterness. Just like the name this is a light export beer by a true German Brewery. Hard not to like this beer and hope to sample ’fresh’’ beer someday from Augustiner-Brau.

Straw colored. Head fades to nothing. Light sourness with a faint sweetness in the back. Crisp and clean. Drinkable and refreshing. Good if your looking for simple brew to enjoy but don’t expect a lot.

superspak (3076) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2014
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of clean pale malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean finish that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Munich Helles lager. All around good balance and robustness of clean pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

AAEA (178) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 FL.OZ ($5) Was a cool find and was purchased in a hidden jewel of a bar/venue. Cool history on the side of the brewery being so old. Its a light beer and its just that. Light on flavor and its super drinkable. Relatively decent light beer.

From bottle. Clear gold with thin white head. Small nose of crackers and corn. Light flavor. Taste is straw with vegetable undertones. Basic, non-cloying sweetness throughout. Watery. Interesting, for a helles.

Bierkrug (2132) - - MAR 15, 2014
330 ML Bottle in the USA at Old München in Pompano Beach. This is better in Germany fresh but still a great Helles. Smooth mellow and a great example of a Helles.
