Koelschtrinker (11049) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Süßlicher Antrunk, wenig herb, süffig. Die Herbe schreitet im Mittelteil ein wenig voran, unterliegt aber weiter der moderaten Süße, welche ihrerseits durch den Hopfen beeinflusst etwas schwächer wirkt. Dennoch wirkt sie noch etwas zu stark und verhilft dem Bier zwar zu großer Süffigkeit, dafür aber zu gehammter Aromenvielfalt. Im Abgang häufiger, die Süße klingt ab und gibt ein angenehm harmonisches Aroma ab, das ich mir vorher bereits gewünscht hätte. Leicht würzig, malzig-klebrig werdend. Test vom 13.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,10,11,8,9 - 9,15

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
It’s yellow golden with a creamy, white head. Both aroma and the slightly sweet flavor has notes of malt, straw, grain, light fruit, and the finish is slightly dry with a light sweetness.

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Tap at the Brauhaus - 29/04/12. Slightly clouded yellow to gold with a thin white head. Malt and wheat on the nose . Malt and a little spice also present in the taste allied to background hops. Medium bodied soft carbonation. A good notch or two higher than the standard helles which I’d drunk previously. Re-Rated on Bamberg Jolly, 26/01/14. 3-5-6-3-12.

pivnizub (9006) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2006
Bottle (donated by joss !) Sweetish grainy nose, some aromatic hoppy spots detectable; golden coloured, big white fluffy head; sweet flavour, some delicate bitterness next door, light to medium bodied; short, but aromatic sweet-bitter finish. a very pleasant Helles, far above average..........

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2006
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium-sized blonde foamy head. Moderately sweet grainy aroma with a shy spicy hoppy background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, malt accented taste rounded up with herbal hoppy notes, rather light-bodied for 5,6 % ABV (according to the label), smooth carbonation; quite dry, malty, mild bitter finish. Might be a good session beer.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2007
Small white head, some lace over metallic golden beer with lazy carbonation. Pale malts, bit creamy-vanilla, but also garden herbs. Very discreet. Very dry (certainly for an Export) initial taste, going over in grain and somewhat sweeter (very) pale malts. But every new sip brings out again a hoppy dryness to start. Maybe some artichoke flavour. Actually, this is quite balanced. Light to medium bodied, not empty, not watery, just - OK. Somebody ought ot go and tell them in Freising. The Export is the one that is a tad sweeter. The nice bitterness, that’s the Pilsener, the Kellerbier,... yes? In the mean time, I’m keeping this, OK!
