COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29486) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of caramel - and so is the flavor.

fiulijn (14991) - 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.

MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2006
Bottle, 5.2% as Hell Naturtrüb. Cloudy golden colour. The flavour is a bit roasted, confusing. Gets acidic. But not bad.

Frisch getreidiger und gleichzeitig säuerlicher Antrunk. Vollmundig cremig getreidig mit wenig Hopfen, süffig, gut karbonisiert. Zum Ende herber, mild, das Ganze wirkt ziemlich jung. Nett. 8/8/9/8/9/8

Rune (8210) - 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).
