This golden-colored beer exports attracted by its fresh, hoppy aroma. The use of selected malts and hops from the Hallertau Ettaler Edelhell gives his special touch.

It’s not a special beer. Floral. Just looking good, but the taste is just a another pilsener.

caesar (4716) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2005
Clear yellow color, short frothy head. Aroma of a regular german hell beer, quite floral. Bit watery taste. Easy to drink.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - NOV 6, 2004
Fruity nose for a helles, clear gold color, spongy head. Sweetish malt front with a hint of apples. Much less bitter than a pils, so it really wasn’t balanced for my palate. Full body, though, but this needs more bitter for sure. OK beer, though too exciting.

Bottle from the Ettaler Monastery in Oberammergau, Germany. Poured a medium sized white head, lacing was sparse, uncarbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty and skunky. Lightly bitter flavor and malt. Boring. Smooth mouthfeel. Light bodied.

thedm (4888) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 12, 2004
This The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 86. This bottled brew from the Ettaler Monastery in Oberammergau Germany poured a large head of frothy finely sized white colored bubbles. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and straw yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of corn malt hops and dough . Its mouth feel is initially smooth mild malty with a lingering thick palate and a crisp clean smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy notes. A very average brew.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2004
Thank you hotstuff and thedm for bringing this to our little ratingsession. Straw yellow with a spare head. Kind of chemical nose. Grass hay taste. Flat and stale though with cheese tones.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 Bottle. Sweet malt aroma - a bit syrupy. Medium yellow with small head. Sweet grainy malt flavor with a slight hops finish. A very so-so beer.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2004
Clear golden colour. Nice lacey head, although quickly diminishing. Aroma was malty with hints of vegetables (peas?). Pretty hoppy, maybe Saaz Hops? Medium body. Not bad, but nothing spectacular either. Light sweetness and maltiness.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - OCT 3, 2003
Bottled. Average size, frothy, white head. Fair lacing, mostly diminishing. Clear yellow colour. Moderate hoppy aroma (hay, grass, dry flowers), very light yeasty, light malty (grain, cereal), light fruity (apricot). Light sweet flavor, moderate bitterness, short duration. Herbal and hazelnut-like afterstaste. Medium to full body for an hell bier, oily texture, soft carbonation.
