Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a small head. A malty, sweet aroma. Taste is slightly hoppy, with a little honey and citrus. A touch of malt underlying it all. A fairly average helles.

This is as much about the experience as the beer. I had this at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, where the waiters carry around as many as a dozen liter steins of this stuff. That’s like 25 pounds of beer, and the glassware aint light either. A solid German helles.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 21, 2008
This is a wonderful beer. It’s bright, somewhat pale, gold with a huge, creamy white head that shrinks slowly to leave a permanent small head & beautiful, even rings of lace down the glass. The aroma has honey, a lot of lightly toasted grain, hints of lemon, pine, sulphur, and even a little toffee. In taste, it’s mostly rather creamy malt with bread, lemon, pine, and very zesty. It’s mostly lightly sweet with a light, aromatic bitterness near the finish. It’s smooth & full-bodied, yet still crisp and refreshing. It’s wonderful with food and is incredibly drinkable.

Clear, golden yellow, 1 inch white fizz head, that lasts 5 minutes. slight lacing. Aroma is skunky and hoppy (pronounced) good. Mouthfeel is too runny like water. Flavor is medium bitter.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2008
Sampled at a tasting, from bottle... not much special about this. Poured gold, no standout aroma. Flavor was weak, but was crisp and refreshing. More of a summertime chugging beer. Nice, but not impressive.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2008
On tap at the Oldsmar Tap House. Poured up in a tankard clear gold with bright white head and cobweb lacing. It has a decent strength aroma with malty sweetness, a note of sugariness and pale malts that blend into floral hops. The taste begins both malty sweet and hoppy with growing floral hoppy notes mixed with a vague hop tart bitterness. The hops persist into the finish with tartness and floral notes. Nice warm weather session brew.
