Wheaty aroma with bitter tinge. Strong German bite can be tempered with a half slice of orange or lemon.

Pours buns up & kneeling into the glass. A nice, crisp Helles. Slight biscuity flavour, a little more bitter flavour than others of its style. It’s good while I bbq for the nieces & nephews. Better than most other similar options in the cottage LCBO. Thought I’d something more to say.

Pas terrible cette pils de Münich. Manque vraiment de beaucoup de caractères et de gouts

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2014
I picked up a sixer of these from the Class Six. Hadn’t had this in a while and had yet to enter a review. The beer appears a clear golden hue with an inch of thick, white head. Distinctly German lager scents rise up to the olfactory senses before the glass is even lifted. Refreshing flavor, with a bready, yeasty quality that can make a lager beer so quaffable. A standard of the style and one I shall certainly return to. Tasty.

oliodnb (263) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2014
50cl bottle. pours clear pale golden with a small, quickly disappearing white head. Smells of sweet malts with some herbaceous notes of noble hops. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, some sweet fruit. Nice final hoppy bitterness.

JanVah (110) - SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
På flaska från bolaget. Klart ljusgul i färgen. Luktar en aning unket. Lätt smak av citrus. Lättdrucken som passar bra i värmen.

vadie (636) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Jaune pale avec une grande mousse blanche. L’arôme fort des céréales avec un peu d’houblon floral. Le goût est des céréales bien équilibré avec un amertume douce. Léger en bouche et facile à boire.

thorongil2 (1166) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
(bottle) clear yellow colour with a medium tall white head; aroma of noble hops, bit of skunk, bit metallic; balanced flavour - competent if unexciting

Clear golden beer that pours with a weak white head. Light aroma of hay and slight skunky hops. The beauty in this beer is it’s like the girl your grew up with, easy to get along with, and moments of arousal and stimulation, the reality is that 90% of the time she’s a commodity. Plain Jane malts yet she leaves me wanting more. C’mon babe, what therefore? It finishes clean, but then again she’s the girl next door....Of course she finishes cleanly.

Draft at old German beer haus milwaukee. From notes. Cereal grains dominate with a hint of floral hops. Just ok.
