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!

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, 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.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2012
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of weak grassy hops, wet paper and some buttery notes. Flavour of grassy hops, weak bready malts, subtle sweetness and some weak herbal notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Smooth malty finish with some bitterness. Quite an average Helles.
