Was macht einen Klassiker aus? Ist es, wie in der Literatur, seine zeitlose Bedeutung? Design gepaart mit vollendeter Technologie wie im Autobau? Oder Emotionen wie im Radsport? Was macht das Helle zu unserem Klassiker? Ist es seine milde, nicht zu grosse, rasch abklingende Bittere? Ist es die Ausgewogenheit von vier verschiedenen, perfekt aufeinander abgestimmten Malzsorten? Ist es die in der Hopfenblume begründete unvergängliche Eleganz? Ist es seine Vollmundigkeit oder doch eher der Geschmack nach feinstem Aromahopfen? Die Freunde – und auffallend vielen Freundinnen – des Hellen streiten sich noch heute über den bevorzugten Charakterzug des Bieres. Einigkeit herrscht indessen in einem Punkt: Das Burgdorfer Helle regt zum Weitertrinken an… Name: Helles Brauart: Untergärig Stammwürze: 12,0 % Alkoholgehalt: 4,9 % vol Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, Hopfen, Hefe Saison: Ganzjährig

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of buttered pale malts and walnuts, slightly perfumed, with a touch of grass and chalk. flavour is mostly the same, more buttered pale malts and straw, with a light touch of hay and some alcohol in the finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

500 ml. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Clear light lager golden, little white head. Nose is heavily metallic with light sorbet & white sugar. Taste is light yeast, sorbet, white sugar, mildly sweet, faint grain & finish heavy on iron unfortunately. Lightly yeasty & strongly metallic body. Not bad but way too much iron for me.

Clear golden color, good white head. Papery malty aroma. Light bodied. Mallts, oily palate, light citrus. Easy going, not very interesting.

Xaltotun (5) - Bern, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2013 does not count
Intense yellow colour, nice head. decent body with a mild bready kind of malt taste and a subtle sweetness. The almost complete absence of hops is disappointing.

Hopfemandli (107) - Zug, SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Golden with stable white head. Hoppy aroma. Well bodied, well balanced sweetness/bitterness/carbonation. Nice hop finish. Since the beginning one of the most recomendable commercial swiss Helles.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 50 cl from Bierladen in Schwarzenburg (CH). Helles hazy yellow to white foam, plentiful and unstable.All the features of the kind, a little more fruity. It is also a bit crispy with the carbonation, medium body, medium hopping. More hoppy in final, notes of citrus fruits. Commonplace.

omhper (20916) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy golden, huge firm head. Mild creamy malt with light grassy hops atop. Dryish and fresh, crisp and highly thirst quenching. Growing late spicy bitterness. A lovely uncomplicated thirstquencher.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a small white head. Mild cornish and vague cereal aroma. Bitter, slight cornish and dry flavoured. Light moudly malty note. Mild citrusy touch into the finish.
