It’s warm golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of bread, malt and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of bread, dry straw, flower, malt and the finish is dry and slightly bitter - very delicious!!

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2009
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty nose. Medium-bodied, malty, hoppy with shy fruity hints. Hints of barnyard flavours present, which makes it quite interesting for a Helles. I like it!

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle: Pale golden, thinner white fluffy head with a little lace; hayish-grassy influences in the grainy nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; a bit harsh in the bitter-sweet finish. Rather a hop-accented Helles, not very well rounded.............

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2007
(bottle) Clear, yellow colour with a mid-sized, not very persistent foamy white head. Moderately sweet, soft grainy malt aroma with an aromatic citrus fruity note and slightly spicy hops. Light-sweet flavour, light bodied with a medium carbonation. Malt-accented, citrus-fruity and slightly chalky taste; almost dry, slightly bitter Citrousy and light hoppy finish. A bit slim but anyway a clean and pleasant Helles.
