KyotoLefty (8501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle at CBB. Malty, biscuity nose, a bit old and oxidized, some caramel, no hop. Cloudy, deep gold. Sweet honey and biscuit flavor, a bit of peach and orange. Meh. It’s old, I mean not past drink by, but hasn’t traveled well at all. Tasty enough, but more like a Heller bock.

darkseduction (673) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Hefetrübes Helles? Kleine Schaumkrone? Eher Zwickel-artig. Brotiger Hefegeschmack, etwas säuerlich. Nicht ganz das, was ich erwartet hatte. Schade.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with large bubbles and a white head. Leaves a nice lacing to the glass. Aroma of sweet grainy malts, some grass, floral notes and rather strong sweet fruitiness. Rich flavour of bread, grainy malts, grassy bitterness, mild floral notes and mouthdrying herbal notes. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Good stuff.

0.5 l bottle from the brewpub in Laaber... Clear yellow-golden color, good head... Interesting mild hop aroma, little bit of lemon... Good Helles taste with quite an intensive hop ending... One of the better Helles, refreshing and intensive...
