UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Vom Fass. It is a golden hue with a pleasant subtle smell and a clean and refreshing taste.

PlusOne (1) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2012 does not count
Overall good taste, got more Character compared to Munich Beers. Will compare it soon, but as Bavarian local Beer it is not bad.

jonas (6079) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2002
Light golden. Malty aroma and taste, but a bit more balanced towards the (aroma)hops than the average Helles.

massingasetta (395) - München, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2015
This beer seems to have it all except a distinct pep. It is really decent and drinkable and seems to evaporate, i.e. it let’s you drink it quickly. It is a very typical bavarian Helles that grows on you.

StueyD (1409) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2006
A golden, straw yellow coloured beer with a frothy, but weak white head. A light, weak nose, slightly metallic, floral hop. The taste is dry and refreshing, initially wheaty, then the floral, citrus zesty hop flavour. The finish is dry and zesty. (Bottle - purchased from Walmart, Freising, Germany during our recent trip over. Drunk it whilst watching the World Cup semi-final, hoping it may bring luck to the German football team, but didn’t!)

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden beer with a nice white head. Grassy hop aroma, floral, bready, cereal notes. Malty grassy flavor, hay, caramel, floral and grassy notes, some bread. Hoppy bready finish with cereal notes.

Quack-Duck (8434) - 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.

EithCubes (5215) - 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.
