COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Although, the traditional Hell style is filtered, the philosophy at Buergerbrauerei is that beer tastes best when served in its natural state.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 I was at a loss in the German beer store when my friends were grabbing at quarts. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise... I never knew Hell could be so nice! As below: crisp, sweet and creamy flavours.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Rerate: In the big competition, this one won big. 4 Dort/Helles side by side, big glasses, me all smiley. The winners in super hoppy and softly malted Helles are this and Dominion. Original 10/15/02: I love great examples of this style, and this is surely one. Absolutley delicious balance of a lot of malt flavor with drippingly heavy hallertau. I just love it. Appearance and palate are perfect. Crisp, sweet, full of hay at harvest.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Head is initially huge, frothy, rocky, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, dense tiny/small particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers, lemon), moderately malty (light bread, cookie), trace yeast (cobwebs), with a note of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Absolutely delicious. I haven't had Andechs' hell yet, but this is surely a strong contender for best helles in the world. This is no ordinary Hallertauer...and that's probably my all time favorite hop even in its standard form. This is the most succulent variety I could imagine. Like a huge bouquet of fresh honeysuckle surrounded by sugar cookies and fresh bread.

A bit hazy,dark straw colored, little bits of particles floating throughout. Nice head and sticky lace. Mouth watering nose of german malts,hallertau hops and maybe even some saaz. Very clean with loads of malt and piles of zesty hops. I would like a bit more crispness but im nitpicking. Both the hops and malt linger on the palate making for a moderatley long, tasty finish....one to quaff on a hot day.

Damn impressive helles. The two days a week I have any interest in this style of beer are saturday and sunday. This makes a perfect start to a weekend day. Nice hoppy aroma, and then the goregous german style malt kicks in with bits of honey and straw, which I love in this style of beer. Then just enought hops come back to dry out the mouth and ask for another.

The Hallertau aroma reminded me of sweaty gym socks. Anyway, the taste was fairly crisp and reminded me of a pilsner in a way.

Nice straw color with a good balance between hops & malt. A really good quaffer.

Nice head, straw color, rising carbonation, floral aroma. Medium body, some sweetness with hoppy spiciness and citric notes. Very nice.

Big white head. Good lace. Nice aroma. The nose is a mix of hops and malt. Very refreshing. Dry. Very smooth. Good brew.
