Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2009
bottle, bought somewhere in the Hallertau. Clear yellow colour with a large white head. Malty, hoppy in a well-balanced relation. A solid and easy-going Helles.

Good, whipped eggwhite head with a yellowish colour over metallic golden beer. Bit of ureum and a lot of sulphur... H²S... Fortunately this proves quite volatile, leaving an equally stunning nose of roasted chicken meat... I can nearly smell the heavy paper bag it came in. Taste gives an, again, sulphur tainted grassy flavour. At least the chicken’s wandered off... It is a peculiar taste. Pale malts present, finish is a bit citrussy. Quite refreshing, despite all remarks, very light body. Well... after some time it seems to revert to a (normal) beer. Still, it remained a bit unsettling.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malts, weak bready and grassy notes. Flavour of grainy malts, not-so-fresh grassy hops, citric tartness and weak breadiness. Light bodied, quite flat carbonation and a grainy, slightly bready finish. Does not taste very fresh.

Bamberg Jolly Day 3 26/01/2014. Draught at the brewpub in Freising. Yellow / straw coloured pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is subdued, grainy, and floral hops. Flavour is grainy sweet, grassy hop with a touch of lemon. Soft light palate. Nice clean ferment.

Light golden. Malty aroma and taste, but a bit more balanced towards the (aroma)hops than the average Helles.

kappldav123 (5581) - GERMANY - SEP 9, 2009
The bottle looks good, but a bit cheap. The beer in the glass is very zippy. Starts mild, modest hoppy, not too dry. A little bit sourish in the background. Finish a bit metallically. Okay, but nothing really special!

EithCubes (5304) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Tap at their tap. Super pale/light yellow with lots of carb and a white head. Sweet malt nose a little mashy, but not in the mouth, where it’s a beautiful chalky sweetness with little grain or bitterness, and a bready resolution. Light-medium body just super, super soft, and vor Ort this is quite refreshing.
