Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2012
#1316 Strohgelb in der Farbe, feinporiger Schaum. In der Nase mildwürzig ähnlich einem Kornfeld, nur leicht hopfiger Geruch. Im Geschmack auch angenehm rezent, ohne überbordend zu sein. Weiches Brauwasser, hervorragende Süffigkeit. Das Wechselspiel zwischen lieblichem Malz und feiner Hopfenherbe ist sehr gut gelungen. Lecker!

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 My Bottom Line :
This mineral Helles possesses lazy pils malt sugars atop surprisingly firm wooden hop bitterness in a svelte yet expansive mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the clear golden.
-That hop bitterness, also yielding peppery notes, is quite pleasant. However, it is not expected due to the subtle hop presence in the aroma and flavor profile and therefore feels unbalanced.
-The malts could be crisper or offer more flavor.
-Pea-like DMS seems to be appearing on the aroma horizon.

Bottle and on tap at the brewery gasthof.
