rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pale cloudy golden colour with decent head. Pale malty nose, fruity and flowery hops. Fruity flavour with creamy body and low bitterness. Tasty and elegant herbal hop profile. Smooth but not really crisp. In short, I just liked it.

gunnar (7125) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2010
On tap at Kaltenberg Sörözö, Budapest. Pours clear light golden with a big creamy white head, which disappear totally after 2 minutes. Nice malty aroma, with some light grassy hops. Taste is light sweet with minimal bitterness towards the end. Low carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Nothing special.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 11, 2010
Appearance: Cloudy straw-yellow color with a diminsishing bubbly white foam.
Aroma: Musty nutshells with a big load of freshly mown hay.
Flavor: Nice mellow nutty-malty sweetness spiced with a very gentle grassy hops.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Soft and easy body with a mouthfilling, thick yeast quality
Overall: Fresh and fine lager.

luttonm (3633) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Clear, crisp golden with foamy head. Upscale looking lager. Nose is pretty fresh and dry. Body is soapy lager and clean flavor. Grass, wheat and a touch sour. Finishes quite bitter with honey and green tea, and nicely dry. Probably the highlight here. This is tasty and a cut above this style around here.

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Crunchy hay and wooden hop dryness surround watery passages in this clean and balanced Helles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear pale gold.
-The nose is very subtle. More aromatic hops would not hurt.
-The body is lean and prone to "suffering" big gulps.
-The malts are biscuity at times.
-The overall flavor profile is too shy to make this a compelling pint.
-This is by no means a bad brew, but compared to the blond lagers brewed a few hours away in Vienna or in the Czech Republic, it is rather ordinary.

On tap at the brewpub.

nate2g (1548) - 上海 / Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2008
Draught at Kaltenberg Sorozo, Budapest. Rough notes from July 08. Clear pale gold with a white head. Sweet grainy aroma, in a good way and good use of hops. Good malty flavour, medium bodied, finishes smooth with some bitterness.

TBone (14902) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2008
Pale clear yellow color, small steady creamy white head. Citrusy nose with hints of sweetness. Fizzy. Nicely citrusy, leafy hoppy brew. Light palate. Rounded sweetish bitterness in the aftertaste. Refreshing and good.

Marko (4543) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 12, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a nice pale golden colour, small persistent white head. The nose was odd, yeast, hop (kinda reminding me of capers overall). Grainy, almost husky taste, surrounded by a nice lemony hopiness. Dry, almost salty finish, with a nice bitterness in the end. Didn’t thrill me, but I thought it was quite nice anyway. Compared to the average fare in Hungary, this is brilliant.

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. You can drink it only here. This beer has a golden color with a medium head. The aroma shows malt and yeast. Moderated carbonation and a good, malt flavour with a light hop taste, smoothly mouthfeel. Nice light-hop aftertaste. The micro-brewery is wonderfull! Classical one with a unique technology.

ogivlado (6818) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 25, 2007
Draught at the brewpub.
Pours a pale golden colour with small white head. Sweet malty and pleasant hoppy aroma with moderate bitterness in the finish. Good thirst- quencher while you’re waiting for waiter at least 25-30 minutes to order a food.
