Mit einem Stammwürzegehalt von 12,2% und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% ist unser Kloster Machern Hell eine mit untergäriger Hefe vergoren typisch Bayrische Bierspezialität. Der feinwürzige, milde Geschmack rührt vor allem daher, dass das Helle schwächer gehopft und dadurch weniger bitter ist als ein Pils. So entsteht die leicht vollmundige Süffigkeit, aber auch die besondere Bekömmlichkeit unseres Hellen.
Starting from an original extract of 12.2% our light ale is brewed with bottom fermenting yeasts to yield a typical bavarian beer spciality containing 5.2% alcohol by volume. Less hops are used than in a pilsner beer, which gives it a mild taste. Our light ale is a delicious, full-bodied beer which is especially palatable.

cgreb (406) - Marburg, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2010
bottle - hazy orange yellow beer with a white head. Fine yeast aroma, not a lot of hops, smokey. Flavour has a lot of yeast, hay and corn. Low bitterness. Medium carbonation. Nice beer!

dnstone (2377) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2010
In the aroma and taste there is a slight grape and light breadiness. Very clean and fresh tasting. Golden with a fading white head. Very refreshing and surprisingly good for a lager. Notes: Bottle from a Schnapps store in Bernkastle-Kues

Indutiomarus (114) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2010
A nice light colored beer. Taste is smooth and very refreshing. Is a great Greman beer and freash and well done. Great beer of true German lines. I noticed that they claim Bavarian Purty laws and not German. Interesting since this is so far from Bavaria.

Bierkrug (2132) - - DEC 29, 2009
500 ML Fliptop bottle in Germany. Pour cloudy with one of the best lacying heads I have seen in a Helles. Aroma is well balanced and taste is a fine mix of hopps, malt and sweetness. As a Helles goes this natural unfiltered Helles is one of the best I have ever had. A must for Helles fans!!!1

fiulijn (16642) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2008
Draught at the brewpub
Deep blond color; creamy head. It has a nice malt aroma, some cereals. Smooth mouthfeel, with some cereals and malt aroma, light residual sweetness; this one as well lacking of hop and bitterness, otherwise it would be a good Helles.

TaxiDriver (1567) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Light malty and sweet, moderate hoppy. Large white foamy-frothy head, golden clear body. Moderate sweet, rather short duration. Creamy body and silky aftertaste, rather light body. Very nice one.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2007
500ml flip-top bottle brought home from Trier. Bottom fermented beer that pours a cloudy, orange body under a dense, white foamy head, reduced to a filmy layer after a short while. Moderate blend aroma of hops and malts. Pale malty taste followed by grain-like sweetness with fruity hops beneath. Dry ending. Fairly well made German Helles (Tromsø, 18.10.2007).

Draught: Poured a orange golden amber with a thin bubbly head. The aroma was a harvesty malt. Sour citrus acidic flavor.
