MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2006
(bottle, thanks pivnizub !) Clear, pale golden colour with a firm foamy white medium- sized head. Slightly sweet grainy nose with honey and a whiff of grassy hops. Soft sweet flavour, malty, grainy taste, light to medium body, well carbonated mouthfeel; medium-dry, slightly sweet malty with a dense blend of herbal hops.

Draught (Stohrenkeller, Bamberg): Pale yellow in colour. A bit bland, but a simple citrusy biscuity lager.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Impressions from the bar stool:
-Tight foam hills protrude from the krug, I have no idea of its shade of gold.
-Hay and wooden hops first peek through the nose.
-Ah, the soft carbonation of nature.
-Some citrus fruit lighten the toasty hay.
-A meditative, finishing hop bitterness ensues.
-Herbal tea and grass notes appear in the aroma as well.
-A frank, well-crafted session lager, nothing less.

On tap at the Stöhrenkeller, Bamberg.

jonas (5843) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Rerate: Getting some minerally notes as well now,light sulphur retronasal. Still a great Helles. Bottle
Pale green golden, dense creamy and lacing head. Herbal hop aroma. Light but firm malt base with a nice aromatic herbal hop profile, ends on a dry note. A shame we couldn’t get it on tap.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Yellowish, very dense head, fully clear gold. Discreet noble hops, with light grain, and some faint toasted aroma’s. Quite sweet, malty, nearly bready taste, with again some toasted whitebread flavour. Bit of sweet peanuts or sweetcorn flavour. Long sweet finish with just a rim of hoppiness. Medium bodied, grist slickness. Not bad Helles. Tad to the sweet site, but pleasant enough. No doubt better on draught.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Tap, at the brewpub. Jan 2005. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Low malt aromas, sweet and malty in the mouth with a slight chalkiness and a gentle hop note. Low chalky hop bitterness in the finish.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2004
Malt in the aroma. Full bodied, malty and some hopbitterness, moving on to a bitter aftertaste. Well made helles, with enough hops to convince. Nasty by-flavors are absent.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2003
Malty and light skunky aroma. Pale golden, white head, fair lace. Malty, quite sweet, few hops, few flavors. Watery and short finish.
