Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Draft at the brewery during day 2 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold with a big, frothy white head. Lightly effervescent. Gorgeous beer. Good sweetness, nice cereal notes, some meringue, light bitter straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crispy finish with moderately sweet cereal, further bitter straw, creamy meringue. Excellent lager.

0,5l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht angenehm malzig, genau so schmeckt es auch. Sehr süffig!

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaal is zoetig en zacht met tonen van vanille. Eén van de betere Helles die ik tot nu toe gedronken heb.

I have been not-so-slowly working my way through a case of this, getting to know it. It’s a fine example of why it sounds silly when people say they think Helles is boring. It doesn’t have to be boring. Maybe YOU’RE boring buddy. Maybe that’s the problem. Clear and pale gold, vanilla-like grainy scent with grassy edges, lightly sweet taste with a moderate earthy bitterness and mineral tang. OK, honest? So it’s not my favorite. But I keep reaching for it automatically when I just want a nice beer without having to think about beer. This is beer that tastes of beer. Is that boring? Shut up.

Bottle. Light gold with a thin head. Aroma is bready malt. Flavour is stone, bread and malts on a long doughy finish- .

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2014
Feine Milde und eine gewisse Süffigkeit punkten hier. Dazu ein klein wenig Gras, Vanille, Butter und ebenso Getreide. Recht einfach zu trinken, klassisch, fein im Abgang. Keine große Leuchte, aber durchaus genießbar.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of mild hosp and straw. Taste of hops, white bread, straw, mild fruits and malt. Easy drinkable, yet nothing special.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2014
From draft at Kellerwald, Forchheim. Quiet nose of minerals and fabric and stone. Creamy soft carb Mineralic, lightly toasty, clean, just sweet, hop profile is subtle lemon and grass hops, enjoyable but without depth. Semi-sweet, low to moderate hoppiness. Long finish of dried grass and pale malt (cracker, saccharine). It’s in nice shape, but the body is a tad watery and after some times the malt begins to show apple-y notes, but that could just be me.

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2014
Bottled, from Landbierparadies, Nuremberg. Clear golden, firm mid sized head. Buttery bready nose. Mid sweet with medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Custard, wheat bread, butter and slight grass. Fairly low bitterness. Very harmonious and hugely drinkable.

dudebun (138) - GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Clean, a little bready maybe. Bit of citrus and grass on the nose. Crisp dry and nice even bitterness that isn’t too heavy, nor is it too sweet. Amazing easy lager.
