DanielBrown (3625) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Really satisfying golden Helles. Light, bready sweetness. Smooth inside the actual mouth. Germans never fail, ja?

kappldav123 (4577) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glas zippy, nice head. Starts mild, but not washy, quite dry, a bit metallically. Light fruity-sourish notes. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

Inbreak (1526) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 11.12.2013, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Small slightly bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grainy, caramel malts, wet grain, hay, hints of malt candy. Taste is slightly sweety, light malts, caramel, wet grain, nuts, hints of toffee. Medium bitterness. Boring!

Idiosynkrasie (3232) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, husky, minimally strawy aroma, hints of ’Fleischwurst’ (pork sausage). Taste is pale malty, minimally strawy, cereals, subtle sweetness. Relatively strong Helles, therefore clearly above average.

Usko (149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2013
Golden color, white head. Aroma of bread and grass, metallic notes. Taste is slightly sweet, notes of bread, grass and a nice malty note in the finish.

ale_eel (4) - - OCT 12, 2013 does not count
Aroma: Plastic, metallic, buttery. Appearance: light golden, with quite a bit of haze Taste: Some maltiness, plastic, a little bit of sweetness and medium bitterness. Palate: Light but not terribly thin. Medium to high carbonation. Overall: I did barely get through this due to an off putting chemical and very metallic nose which also was the highlight of the taste experience. I guess something was wrong with the bottle, but there have been similar reviews, although most raters do not mention it. Bad.
