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.

Bottle. Pours a very clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is just a tad sweet with a typical lager smell. Feels creamy, which I found surprising. Tastes like a lager. Meh.

Borresteijn (5319) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2012
50cl Bottle via trade, thanks Bierkoning! ABV 5.0%. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is malty sweet, bread, cake, light spicy grassy hops. Flavour is nice smooth and malty, soft bitter grassy finish. Simple and straightforward, but really nice and smooth. Light-bodied, soft oily mouthfeel.

Fin (8270) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
Purchased this at a Orterer Getrenmarkt in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany 30.05.12 consumed at friends Lyn & Barrys when invited to watch Ukraine v England match 19.06.12 Pours shining gold with a white head. Bit sweet initially I like the maltiness, soft in the mouth. Not sure of the abv but there is thickness and warmth that suggests that this is stronger than it probably is. Like this.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2012
It’s warm golden with a huge, creamy, white head. The aroma has mild notes of malt, bread and flower. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, grain, bread, flower and a little citrus with a straw feel. The finish is slightly dry. Harmonic.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Hard, musky baked aroma. Clear lager color, fairly still. Dirty malt flavor, mild hopping. Easy drinking, pretty standard stuff. I would drink it, but not as a pricey import.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Aroma of sugar cookies, apples, and yeast. Pours amber with decent carbonation and a quick head. Tastes of grassy yeast with a hint of corn bread. Nice helles.

rondphoto (2784) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Hazy honey color with a full white head and good lacing. Taste matches the smell: sweet caramel malt with a touch of vanilla and clove, balanced by a light floral hops in the finish. Very good helles; light and easy drinking.

BeerViking (3103) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
0.5l bottle from the brewery shop, pours gold with a fast-disappearing white head, a light malt aroma with a faint hint of hops. Crisp and dry on the palate with a spritzy finish and a lingering light bitterness. Decent example of a helles.

500 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours golden in colour, with moderate white head. Leaves tonnes of lacing. Nice balance between noble hops and sweet malt!
