For decades Berg Original has been our main beer brand. It has had many names before (Lager, Helles, Export). The yellow color in the label remained unchanged though and eventually turned gold. Therefore many friends of Berg beer call it "the yellow one". In the pub, the inn and on many festivities the "half liter" is Berg beer. It is the synonym for the fine, traditional way of brewing.

darkseduction (717) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
Flasche 50cl. Hopfung Tradition und Herkules. Herkules? Hochalphasorte? Insgesamt unauffälliges, nichtssagendes Helles aus den Tiefen der Belanglosigkeit. Schade, hatte mehr erwartet.

jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 13, 2016
Bottle. Pale golden, white head. Crisp hops, fresh hays malt. Chewy sparkly body. Fresh, well balanced, perhaps a bit more of a Pils than a Helles. Nice well balanced.

0,33l Bügelflasche. Goldgelbes Bier mit irdentlichem Schaum. Duft recht neutral. Etwas Getreide. Geschmack leider auch recht flach. Wenig herb.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
50cl bottle, Edeka somewhere in BW’s fields. Easy drinking, slightly sweet/lieblich mash-inflected BW Helles with no flaws, nor any prominent hop characteristics. Tastes as if bottom-fermented to the degree zero essentials over the ages. A "half liter" of the "yellow one" will go down as innocuously as a lonely stroll over the Alb, - the most prominent taste being that of your accompanying mood.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, leicht würzig. Geschmack angenehm malzig würzig, minimale Bitterkeit.
