A Helles by style, Jackson describes it as having "a very full gold colour, with a maltiness that is almost chewy and oily, with a faint hint of smoky dryness.

Tap. Orange-golden color with white head. Aroma is sweetish malts, citrusy, grassy hops. Taste is butter, fruchtgummi, overall quite sweetish, but also refreshing. Medium carbonation. Interesting.

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 (7086) - 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.

Look; pearl white big head and straw-gold golden clear body. Aroma; bread, wort, malts, poo poo, dusty meadow. Taste; dusty hops, pale malts, caramel notes - leading to a finish in malted grains and strawy hops. Normal texture and soft carbonation. Some dusty stuff. Ok.
