Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
Draught @ brewpub. Golden colour, almost bright. Fresh malt aroma cracks with grain. Fresh, simple country lager. On the surface there seems little to it, but it is well-balanced and impeccably drinkable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Light gold with nice head and nice lace. Hoppy aroma is totally herbal. Quaffable palate has no stickiness and pretty high carbonation. Very very good dry helles with a beautiful balance and a blissfully floral hoppy finish. Delish. More!

harrisoni (15005) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
On tap at Sonnen Bischberg. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Clean drinking hell. Some lemon some harsh carbonation on tap. Clean some lemon. No off flavours easy drinking. Wow what an easy drinking beer. Some toast on aroma some noble hop flower and intense lemon curd on the finish. Excellent.

DutchDrebus (4679) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle @ home. Clear pale yellow colour with a small to medium sized white head. Smells malts, somewhat hoppy, grassy. Tastes grassy, malty, somewhat cardboard but in a pleasant way. Thin to medium body, medium carbo.

MartinT (8492) - 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.

On tap at fuerth night flea markets, served by girl guides. Pale amber with a steady head; aroma of peach syrup and hay; prickly and delicious with more bitterness than expected of a helles

bierkoning (11044) - 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.

jonas (6079) - 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.
