Yellow godled. White foam a bit rough, but it lasts. Aroma light but sour. metal. Light hoppy flavour, caramel. Dry beer, but nice taste. Low carbon average body. Nice light bitter aftertaste that lasts

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Golden colour. Delicious bready araom with a hint of yeast. The taste is malty, rich with plenty of appetizing dryness. Good balance. One of the better helles in the area.

Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Hazy golden appearance with a nice foamy white head. Light orange fruity, grainy/straw, yeasty aroma. Somewhat fruity, chewy yeasty, rich bready, refreshing flavor. Good stuff!

Golden color, white head. Nose full of malt, caramel and faint citral notes. Taste starts sweet. Develops notes of caramel, bread and malt with faint hoppy notes.

Shaney (2427) - 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!

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
(Bue sur place): Un profil malté qui possède une certaine richesse et qui s’effondre en une longue sécheresse. L’amertume est franche et la clarté des saveurs s’intensifient avec le temps.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Dark gold. Lasting white head. Malty aroma smells very rich. Very good, quaffable, easy palate. The flavors are first like the aromas, rich and worty and malty. Then they become nice and dry. Delicious!

MartinT (8135) - 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.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle marked 01.01.13. Bright and airy citrus nose with some faint caramel. Clear, rich golden body with a creamy, rocky white head. Taste is initially sweet but followed soon by crushing tang and bitterness, which themselves quickly recede to ’low’. Caramel and toffee, strong force of spicy hops on the back end, chewy and deep malt with light caramel, toffee, and earth, and there’s a very faint hint of bread at the end. Medium body with layers. A well-hopped, paler, spicier Dunkel, or something of a traditional Keller-/Landbier. Edited to add: RB says this way my 200th Dortmunder/Helles rating.
