Draught at Stöhrenkeller, Bamberg. Clear golden, small head. Deep buttery nose. Soft, sweetish malt dried out by grassy hops. Wonderfully well structured malt superbly balanced by the grassy hops. Long but mild bitterness. Orthodox but superb, A fantastic beer, almost iconic in it’s simplicity.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Minutious toast is imbued with citrusy, spicy refinement in this fabulously drinkable, dry lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A fluffy head of foam protects the clear pale golden shine.
-The nose and flavor profile are multifaceted; very appealing for such a discreet brew.
-The mouthfeel is super clean and supremely drinkable. This is surely a marvelous session lager at the brewery.
-The prickly, forced carbonation fits the flavor profile perfectly, contrarily to their Lagerbier in which effervescence was overwhelming.

Bottle.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2012
#1310 Ein superbes Helles kommt in einer sehr biederen Flasche: Goldgelb mit feiner Schaumkrone. Ein tolles Aroma nach Hopfen in durchdringender Citrus-Note gepaart mit Melone, Grapefruit...sehr fruchtig. Frisch und trocken im Antrunk, sehr reines Mundgefühl. Die Fruchtigkeit tritt einem leichten Malzkörper zurück bevor der absolut leckere Hopfen wohldosiert gegen Ende ins Spiel kommt. Das alles sehr subtil & sophisticated. Friedel rulezzzz

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2009
draft @ brewery. Golden and clear with gorgeous doily lacing. Aroma is very clean, with cereal and granola. Is a bit thin and watery in the palate. Clean, almost too clean. No farm flavors but every once in a while the hops come out and there are some nice blonde wood flavors too.

Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a light note of lime zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Another nice one from Friedel...they’re not quite "wow" level beers but they are very pleasant and clean. Good stuff.

kappldav123 (5369) - GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle looks very simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, deep golden, nice head. Starts mild dry, malty background, fruity hints of lemon. A little bit metallically, not too much. Finish well balanced, still mild. Good one!

pivnizub (9166) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 From the tap (in the brewery-tap) Golden colour, thin foam; fresh hoppy (grassy) aroma; sweetish malty beginning, bitter-sweet taste, ending in a short, hoppy aftertaste, low carbonated, but refreshing....

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2006
(On tap) Clear, pale, pilsener golden with a dense, creamy, white head. Extremely floral aroma - almost perfumy, yoy could be tricked to believe that coriander was added. Medium body with sweet malt. Lightly hoppy finish, but this beer is completely dominated by the great aroma hops. 091106

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
Golden, sparkly. Nice thick head. Deep pale malt and noble hop aroma. Light to moderate bitterness but lots of bready pale malts. Good balanced beer straddling the line between a helles and a pils. Late diacetyl emerging.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - APR 29, 2010
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Moderately sweet malty and distinctively citrus-fruity and slightly floral hoppy aroma. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, almost crispy on the tongue. Soft pale malty base with light notes of citrus and floral hops; dry, sweet and mildly bitter finish with delicately notes of aroma hops. A very fine Helles. 29.IV.10
