DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
Swingtop from Bulko. Bright, spritzy and golden with a silky head of suds. Buttery vanilla-malty aroma with a hint of hop grassiness. Sweet and grainy. Cardboard and pine as it warms. Another well-constructed malty lager it’s impossible to really dislike or get excited about.....

Tap at Laschet’s in Chicago. This was avery pleasant lager, though not as biscuity as I would like from a Helles. Still, nice malt character backed up by clean, non-astringent hops.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet grain/light malt, faint spice hops. Taste is sweet grain/light malt, creamy, faint spice/grassy hops. Nice, easy drinking. Thanks jwc215 for sharing.

Ernest (6196) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Bottle (BB 12/12). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of honey, light notes of DMS and plaster. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nice honey note, uncanny (almost like honey was added), but brought down a bit by some industrial notes. Decent balance, a bit grainy but good.

Last reviewer noted corn in the taste. I dont’ think so. They dont’ put corn in their helles. The old law Reinheitsgebot doesn’t allow corn or rice or any of the crap many American macro brewers use to save money. Any corn you’re tasting in this export is imagined. Good solid helles with good finish. I’d drink it again.

This one pours a very light golden with a small head and good carbonation. The initial aroma was ever so slight skunk but that quickly dissapeared. Candied corn, light malt and grains followed. Flavor is clean and mildly crist. Light malt, corn, dry tartness (lemon). Overall it was pretty decent.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2007
355 ml. bottle, "Produced On" date (05/07) in the lower right hand corner of front label, sampled in a pilsener glass. Crystal clear in appearance, a nice bright golden lager color, large frothy white head, good retention, small amount of laced sticking. Smells of dry grassy grains and pale malt sweet, a mild lemon fruitiness and a light herbal hop. Creamy smooth medium body, gentle, well rounded feel in the palate. Soft crispness and dry finishing, husky grains with little pale malt sugariness. A delicate tart lemon hoppiness that turn spicy towards the end, provides a pleasant dry bite. Dry husky, grassy grains linger a bit in the aftertaste. Refreshing taste and quite quaffable, a great after work beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Cowly Road in Oxford. Rosy copper, small, fast fading white head. White raisin aroma and that hard to define bready lager quality. Apricot malt sweetness. A bit of sawdust. Soft but a little lifeless on the palate. Needs something. More hops maybe? Brighter carbonation? Just lies there.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a white head. Aromas are floral and buttery with biscuit and lemon. Hoppy with soft citrus. Flavours are grain with citrus and melon. Some caramel and biscuit. A fresh, easy drinker.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2007
My bottle reads "Munich Gold". I have a hard time believing this is not the same thing as their Edelhell, given the exact same alcohol content. This one might be a shade darker in color. Out of the 6 I bought, I found this to be moody. Some of the bottles were sort of muted, but others were bursting with flavor. What I was surprised to find was that backing up some really nice, clean, sweet, but medium-light, malt flavors was this nice little bit of flowery hop "crunch" at the end. I really loved this beer.
