TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Gravity cask at Ayinger Speis und Trank, Munich: Color indeterminable (served in a ceramic mug). Persistent silky white foam. Inviting spicy hop nose with a mild note of tea, licorice and earthy malt. Very rustic. Soft, natural, tiny-bubbled carbonation. Opens with a snappy cookie and dusty yeast signature which sits atop a crunchy mineral backbone. Malt is crackly, though considerably deep with a bouncy cookie edge which shows good melanoidin girth beneath the earthier and snappier straw notions. Intriguing dollop of creamed coffee entwined with a hazelnut earthiness, ensues. Splash of fresh peach and a dab of cotton candy adds further mystique, as does faint plum skin, with delicate acids and all. Loads of dry malt augment the through-the-roof quaffability. Plentiful sassy hop spice is sprinkled throughout. Closes nicely hoppy with intricately-woven earth and spice elements which beautifully match the snappy and gently earthy, bitter edge of the Munich malt. Perhaps a wee bit thin, but overall a very juicy, well-balanced example with tremendously soft and fine carbonation. Drinks much more like a kellerbier than a helles, as the hops are more spicy than herbal/floral, the dark malt is rustic, and the yeast quite dusty. Would gladly make this my everyday drinker.

500ml bottle. Aroma is hay, grass, citrus. Appearance is pale golden with a nice white foam. Taste is light sour and sweet but mostly bitter. However, very light in all tastes. Has a strong carbonation and feels very refreshing. Overall a very nice Helles.

hirigalzkar (2223) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Lovely drinkable and well balanced lager. Nice clean and bready malts. The hops are flowery and the finish has got a moderate thirstquenching bitterness.

Nagyon finom kis ivósör, ismételni tudom magam, el se tudtam képzelni, hogy ilyen finom egy igazi Helles.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 27, 2012
Erfrischend herber aber leicht muffiger Beginn. Dann etwas süß mit einer geringen Getreidigkeit, insgesamt leider recht laff. Kaum bitter, muffiges Malz. Entäuschend. 11/7/8/6//6

I can only describe this beer as "Interesting" in every way, smell, taste, but aren’t all European beers funky?

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Draught in Munich (gravity cask). Head is mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow? (served in a ceramic mug). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, soft carbonation. Straightforward but pleasant and clean.
