mile (3036) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, light bread, faint grassy hoppyness. Light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light bread and faint hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light metal and light hoppyness. Lightly sweetish helles, light sharp metal in the finish - nothing special.

kappldav123 (5031) - GERMANY - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle looks simple and a bit boring. Beer in the glass not vey zippy, small head. Starts mild, but not washy, mild-dry background. Finish malty-wheaty, still very mild. Okay.

EithCubes (5011) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle by 05.01.13. Nose of pale malt and juicy citrus, pours rich clear golden with a rocky off-white head. Taste has juicy malt flavor and that citric hopfest continues, quenching and moreish with just a hint of Heller Bock honey/white grape. Light-medium body is smooth with really no crispness.

Maria (10173) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2012
It’s warm golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of bread, malt and flower, and the same lovely notes are found in the slightly sweet flavor. I love the bread-feel in this one, and the balance is great.

Bov (9608) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 31, 2012
courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - clear and bright golden beer under a solid white foam; superb lacework; the aroma is buttery and herbal; some sweet maltiness, medium-bodied and a low bitterness; corny and buttery finish - quite cloying

Grima (2101) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kräftig goldgelbes Bier mit guter, feiner, langlebiger Krone. Der Geruch ist süßlich-hopfig dominant, zudem etwas muffig. Der Antrunk erfolgt ebenfalls dominant süßhopfig, mit leicht säuerlicher Note untermalt. Wäre eigentlich ein prima Helles, wenn dieser muffig-metallische Nachgeschmack nicht wäre, welcher leider jeglichen guten Eindruck zunichte macht. So reichts leider nur für nen mageren Durchschnitt.

yngwie (13750) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Quite hoppy nose with the malts in the back. A touch of fruits too. Bitter, grassy and piney flavor with some malts too. Full-bodied and dry, finishing with a fruity, bitter flavor and some grains. Quite hopped for a Helles, which is nice. 110128
