BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2008
This is one of the easiest drinking beer I have ever had. Spicy herbal hops in the nose, with a kind of bready honey malt background. Very clean on the palate, slightly grainy but still pretty crisp.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle. Light yellow color in pour with mostly white head. Very easy drinking with typical german bittering hops, earthy/grassy and malt notes. Somewhat floral.

bhensonb (12150) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Smells malty. Gold color with a white head. A bit thin bodied, but has creamy carbonation. Kind of biscuit with noble hop. Very smooth and clean. Finishes reasonably dry with a light grassy hop bitter. Good in a bland sort of way. Course it’s really really good compared to Bud.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
from Holiday. Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Faint bready aroma and taste with some grainy malty notes and a refreshing crisp finish.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2008
This is a light, but very nice, satisfying beer. It is gold with a bubbly, medium white head that steadily shrinks to a thin foamy ring and leaves only a hit of lace. The aroma is soft and sweet with grain, very flowery hops, and a little herb. The taste is full bodied grain, lots of green apple, and light but persistent hints of pine and herb, wityh a light bitterness that nevertheless persists through to a finish of grain and green apple with a hint of grass. It goes extremely well with food, which actually accents its flavours.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2008
(on bottle)A very fresh aroma of bitterhops and, well, oxygen. Pale, grassy yellow, small white head. The tickling carbonation makes it even more refreshing and easy drinkable. The finish is of hops and kind of dry.

DocLock (8400) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Golden pour with off-white head. Aroma is hopcitric, with pale malt, mild Caro syrupy notes, and a pretty light palate heft, with crispness, but not much flavor density, primarily pale malt with backup hops and citrus notes.

(Draught at restaurant "La Vita" in München)
Clear straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Sweet malty and of sirup scent. Sweet malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. I found it rather boring compared to most other beers I drank in München during my trip.
5/3/5/3/10=2.6

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus and malt with very mild bread, the aroma feels dull even if the right elements are there. The flavor though feels more sharp, there’s a good presence of malt with citrus and mild fresh bread, it feels round and refreshing. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbobnation. Not a great helles but it’s pleasant to drink in a hot summer day.

bierkoning (10921) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Fresh malty, slightly grassy aroma. Malty, hay-like,slightly chalky flavor with some citrus and vanilla. Quite complex and tasty helles.
