Raistlin (90) - London, Ontario, - JAN 21, 2013
This beer is definetely not what i exptected it to be. Considering its origin, i would think that taste would be a bit more stronger. It feels really light for German lager. That being said, i do enjoy drinking it. While it lacks strong taste and after taste, it is pretty smooth. It has a big white head that tastes great, but unfortunately it disapears fast. Colour is golden, and while it looks really appealing while the head is still present, colour can be a bit unappealing after head has dissapeared. It has perfect balance between sweet and bitter, and it does not bite your tounge like other beers. Almost at times feels little watery. Very conflicted with this beer, at times i love it and yet i can find so many faults with it.

sudomorph (376) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear gold with a frothy white head that fades quickly but laces nicely. Snap, crackle, and pop can be heard. Aroma has notes of toasted bread and a slight fruity apple. Taste is a balanced bitter. Toasted bread with a mildly bitter finish. Low-medium body with a medium carbonation. Clean and crisp in the mouth with an easy drinking texture. Overall easy drinking and enjoyable. Balanced and slightly bready.

Poured from a bottle, Japan. Hearty lager aroma. Piss yellow with a weak head. Taste is pretty forgettable, a bit of corn in there as well. Goes down smooth and is very drinkable.

Zarkam (336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Tallinn. Clear gold colour, large frothy mostly lasting white head, good lacing. Heavily malty aroma of grain, fruit and bread, moderate floral hops and a hint of cloves. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a moderately sweet and slightly bitter finish with a moderately acetic feel. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Quite a robust lager with some interesting malt character but a bit too little hops for my liking, an above average helles certainly.

swensone (3) - - MAR 6, 2014 does not count
From bottle at home. Pours brilliantly clear, with a lacy white head. Color is golden yellow and completely transparent. Flavor is dry and malty with balanced continental hop flavor, with sweetness from pilsner malt and a slight skunky undertone. I could see drinking liters of this in a biergarten.

Underdogs88 (57) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Grainy aroma with a spicy hop note. Super clear gold color with a white head with avg head retention. Flavor is malt forward with spicy hop flavor in the background. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, a classic Munich helles. An excellent session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle at Salud restaurant in Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh. Very light, little head and weak taste. A good beer for heavy fare or a summer day.
