TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pale gold with a medium white head that fades quickly to a film. Grainy aromas with a slight earthy hop character lingering in the background. Clean grainy, pilsner flavor supported by slightly spicy hops and a clean finishing bitterness. Medium body. Classic example of a Munich Helles.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Vova. Clear golden with a big white head. Decent aroma of malt, a bit bready, a bit grainy, and some grassy hops. Flavor has mild malty sweetness and mild bitter grassy/herbal hops finish. Light to medium-bodied. Decent.

Alengrin (1049) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Münchener helles from a classic Bavarian brewery, with thick, delicate, stable foam and clear golden blonde colour. Aroma of pale malts and flowery, soft aromatic hops, bit spicy, bit straw-like. Malty but not really sweet taste, smooth, becoming dryer towards the finish with a brief but zestful hop bitterishness in the tail.

GSAP (489) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Niet een hoogvlieger, beetje onbeholpen in de mond, wat waterig met zoetje, aroma is wat muf en afwaswater, nasmaak niet zo lekker.

bpreo (1545) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2014
A great tasting real German beer, from Munich. It’s always nice to taste a beer straight from the motherland.
