2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smooth and mild beginning. Grainy, not too deep, not too much bitterness. Easy to drink Helles, slightly grainy-sweetish in the end but round.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color topped with a rather small white head. Mild malty aroma, bready and grainy. Bready taste, some hints of bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Total Wine, Delaware 50cl: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grains, more hops than expected I suppose, but not really in a good way, and some bread. Taste is grainy and bready. It is not smooth and mellow in the way that I like helles style beers. This is an average, but not a good example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grainy aroma, light bitterness, bread and cream and sweet malt flavors. Poured into a tall German beer glass resulted in constant bubbles and yellow bodied lager. $4 for a 500 ml old returnable swing top at Total Wine. Consumed during the World Cup Final.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Pretty custom bottle. Pale golden colour, fluffy head. Aroma of grain, straw, yeast. Medium body. The taste has a hoppy charakter that would rather be a Pilsner than Helles. At finish & in aftertaste hops dominate as well. Crafty German example.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml flip-top bottle in Coral Springs, Florida. This bottle traveled a lng way to meet me and it shows. It like so many other German beers did not travel well. Would really like to have this fresh in the homeland. Pours a golden yellow with a soft white head. Aroma tells you that it was exposed to high temps. Malt fruit and some paper. Taste is deep sweet maly. Palate is smoh but soiled.
