anstei (1168) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle. I can see the faint hint of smoky dryness, but also just a tad of butter. Besides that indeed rather malty and oily. Light sweetness, matching well. Lively carbonation, light body, yet not water at all. Nice.

rlgk (18187) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2016
Draught at the bierstube in Bamberg. First beer during Bamberg-trip 2016. Clear deep golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, cereal, biscuits, some grassy hops. Bready flavor, caramel, cereal almost papery notes, some grassy hops. A bit too heavy on the bread.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Where and how: Bottle 500ml in Bamberg
Aroma: Hallertau hops up front, vibe of fresh meadow with soft golden malts as base. Clean job. 7+
Appearance :
Top: medium sized, white, long lasting. Left rings on glass.
Base: clear gold.
Palate : medium thinner body. Frisky carbonation, beyond that with milder qualities.
Taste: Reminded me more of good Polish Jasne Pelne beers. Simple, refreshing and clean. I like my Helles beers to be softer, more delicate.
other notes Not bad by any means but I am not sure why this one is in top 50 for style.

50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of fat buttery malts, light vegetal notes, some (bison)grass, not unlike some Polish lagers. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, light buttery, light toast, light grassy bitter finish. Light bodied, slick. OK.
