Had on tap the Hofbrauhaus in Vegas. Helles means lager to me and this is certainly in that bunch in every way. Only the atmosphere gave enjoyment to this brew.

Bottled. Orange colour with a medium head. Reasonable tasting, but overally fairly boring, simple and with a slight flavour of dirty dishwater.

Perhaps my taster is off compared to the others who have rated this beer, but I was very favorably impressed, as my score indicates. The fluffy head settled in nicely and the aroma was nice and "beery" without smelling like cheap swill (does that make sense?). What surprised me the most was the flavor, which reminded me of clover honey and mild hops. The mouthfeel and carbonation were nice and smooth and if I could keep lots of this in the fridge without going broke, I would. ($3 a bottle and an hour’s drive away for me)

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - AUG 22, 2005
had a horrible smell to it. skunky. Flavor was sweet with some floral notes, but the flavor grew bland do to the fact that it had no hop character. seemed somewhat over-carbonated to me.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
Clear gold, moderate head, no lace. Neutral aromas of dry straw and corn syrup, nothing really hoppy about it at all. Mildly sweet palate, really no hop character to speak of. Maybe the bottle I had was passed its date (I couldn’t find a date on it anywhere), but this was very unimpressive to me.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Hay and malt in the aroma. Pours pale gold with a nice fluffy white head. Honey sweet and loamy with a touch of hay and some flower flavors. Way too sweet to be appealing to my personal taste.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2005
On tap at English Garden in Munich. Bright gold color with frothy white head. Slightly sweet malty aroma: wheaty. Very smooth taste, malty and flowery but dry enough to keep drinking. Perfect for a sunny day at a beer garden.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Munich - Pours dark gold, there is a high amount of wheat in the smell. It tastes the same with much more hop flavor. Very hoppy and bitter.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
Golden colour with a solid white head. Malty aroma with notes of hay and a faint bitternes. Malty flavor with notes of leather. Dry and light bitter finish.
