thellgren (315) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2013
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket as Adler König das Echte Hell (same picture in the label). Bubbles, not much of a head to be seen. This is a very light beer. I would say rather watery. You could find some hints of malts and hops in the aftertaste if you really try. Still this was what I was expecting.

stevoj (2341) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2013
This helles has a bit of an edge, a sharp hoppy bitterness. Pours clear golden with short foamy head. Sparse carbonation. Aroma is malt and a touch of citrus. Taste is crackers, sourdough, hops and lemon. After working all day on a hot day, this tastes pretty darn good.

sinte (366) - Udine, ITALY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle 0.5L. Clear golden body with a small, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing. Light-to-moderate malty (grains, straw) and hoppy (herbal) aroma. Nicely balanced bitter/sweet flavour; moderate bitter finish. Light body with a watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle shared, march 30th 2013. Clear golden body, tiny white head. Aroma of light wheat and crispy hops. Taste is sugary sweet with bread and piney hops. Very lightly bittered and a soapy aftertaste. I find it very boring.

Not a horrible beer but nothing too great very light color no head it a whole lot of flavor other than a light German beer. Got at an airport with too many euros

visionthing (2989) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
50cl bottle from Munich Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a white head. Mild malty aroma with some fruity notes and hints of cooked vegetables and metal. Medium sweet with a grainy sweetness and some slightly unpleasant flavours. Finishes lightly bitter with some slightly sour notes. A bit watery with slightly soft carbonation. Quite boring and far from impressive, but quite drinkable. I’m not sure if I could tell this apart from a pale lager in a blind tasting.

BeerBaboon (1615) - FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Pours pale golden with white head. The aroma is quite weak with grass and grains. Flavour is a tad sweet and buttery. Medium carbonated. Not impressed but this is something I can quite easily drink in the hot summer sun.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a mid-sized foamy white head. Sour doughy nose with hints of grassy and metallic hops. Mildly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Doughy malt character with a touch of bitter hops; quite dry and moderately bitter hoppy finish with a discreetly papery malty touch. 09.IV.13
