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.

Love this beer. It has spurned me to try other Munich Helles Style beers along with home brewing.

Wow what a nice beer. The beer poured a medium golden color with a nice flufffy head. Very light and refreshing at the same time. Very enjoyable

The perfect brew from Munchen. Have not had a bad one yet. Always a good pick. Aroma similar to Corona w/lime. Taste mild bitterness. Somewhat dry mouthfeel. Goes down easy with any food. Quality from the German purity law. Good for the style.

This beer is so good it’s great. Probably the first beer I ever had, when I was like 18, in Munich at the Hofbreaehaus. Yum. Delicious.

From the bottle poured a pale golden brew with a generous, fluffy white head. light aromas and flavors of buttery malt with a nice hop finish. Light bodied and delicious.

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)

Ach! Mein Gott!
OK, OK, so maybe my High School german is failing me. I poured this from a 12oz bottle into a real half-liter krug, and true to form it left a huge white head. A slight hop/malt nose, and the mouthfeel is right on target. Sweet malt, just a perfect amount of hops, giving a wonderful, soft Munich Helles experience!
