SinH4 (3175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is floral, grainy, bready, rather sweet. Taste is again a bit floral, bready, sweet grains. The carbonation is a bit too aggressive. Besides that, it’s a nice Helles.

anstei (1227) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle. Some nice floral hops for a helles, even though it is not much. Hints of butter over a typical sweetness and bitterness and carbonation. Less refreshing than others. A good one for a helles.

Svesse (7924) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2016
(Bottle, Vagabund Brauerei, Berlin, 24 Aug 2016) Golden colour with brief, frothy, white head. Malty nose with grass, bread, honey and fresh grassy/spicy hops. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of bread, apricots, grass and a balanced herbal, grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight malt sweetness. Tasty and well made helles with a soft malt character and fresh hop presence. Nice one.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle as the Held Brau Hell. Bottle from Aldi drunk in a park in Bamberg. Clear gold colour lasting white head. Malty aroma. Some bread some yeast. It’s ok. Not my thing as a little too bready and i prefer something cleaner. Distinctly ok. Some lemon hop on the finish. Rest is just a little bready for me. Ok.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo dobrze wygląda, brak metnosci i jasne jest ale piana ladna i stoji długo. Zapach trochę podwedzonych produktów mlecznych. Smak slodowe ale lekko, trochę dymne w smaku tresciwosc w sam raz. Dobre do objadu bo uzupelnia doskonale rybe gotowana.

massingasetta (663) - München, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2016
Drank this beer (bottled as Held Bräu Helles) and was quite surprised. this is the type of beer that well represents the fresh and classic taste of a Helle. If you had a case of this in your cellar you would bring it out with pride if your friends come by unexpectantly.

KyotoLefty (9388) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Golden, clear and glowing. High, airy head. Bready malt nose, lemon, minerals,honey. Rather dull nose. Mineral, lemon, and honey flavor, rather light and crisp with decent bitterness. Crisp and light. Good, not great. Quite interesting,with light sweetness but solid malts. Very quaffable on a hot summer day.

Bottled, from Landbierparadies. Lightly hazy golden, mid sized head. Grassy bready nose. Dryish with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Grass, bread and spice. Mid bitter finish. Relaxed.
