Braudog (6026) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. The last of a long day of beer drinking, and my notes, well, they’re not written as clearly as some of the others. Overall impression -- bronze/copper and thin, silky, sticky, malty. (#4393, 12/2/2011)

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 Half litre bottle, medium head. Bronze colour, clear. Smelled hints of banana, also some hops. Nice balanced malty taste with hints of fruit. Overall a very well made lager.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Honeyed malts are pricked by herbal hops and bubbles in this well-rounded, faultless Helles.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam skirts the dark golden (darker than their Pils, for example).
-Malts tend to offer more flavor in this one.
-Drinkability is quite high due to leanness and soft flavor intensity.
-The mouthfeel is well polished. This feels professional.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

I found a humorous in Bamberg that when I asked for a Helles they actually asked pils, lager, or weizen. This one is a solid Lager.

prawlie (1284) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
500 mL draught at Fassla in Bamberg. Darkish blond with lots of head at the start, but it soon disappears. Smells of malt, and a little of pilsner. Distinctive long tankard. Its alright, a plain lager, but it least it was a local brew.
