ischas (444) - - APR 5, 2016
0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: Malzig süß, brotig, leicht würzig. Erscheinung: Goldgelbes Bier, stabiler weißer Schaum, schöne Gardine. Geschmack: süßlich, leicht säuerlich, etwas nach Honig, überraschend bitter für ein bayerisches Bier, wenn auch die Bitterkeit nicht dominiert. Nachgeschmack: minimal zu wenig Kohlensäure, Süße dominiert im Abgang. Gesamt: Gelungen.

chinchill (4338) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Berchtesgadener Hell vom fass. .5l in glass mug at the brewpub in 2012 (from notes). Crystal clear and sparkling with visible carbonation and a near white head that has moderate duration. Fine malt and spicy hop aroma but rather faint and subtle. More flavorful than nose indicates, and it becomes nicely hoppy and mildly bitter by the finish. A bit floral and herbal. M: near medium body. O: a fine example of this style, albeit with a weak nose and limited head.
