Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2011
Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of straw and lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and lemon, leading to a very bitter finish. The body is a bit light.

0,5 l bottle from a beer discount, Laaber, Germany.
Straw yellow, clear bodied beer with a small lacing white head. Moderated character both in the aroma and flavor with pilsner malt, sourish yeast and herbal floral hops. Absolutely correct, but not an exciting one...

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2010
(bottle) Clear, greenish golden colour with a fluffy white foamy head. Moderately sweet malty and grainy aroma with notes of barnyard and shy traces of hops. Light-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly fizzy carbonation. Pale malt-character, again with notes of barnyard; dry bitter-sweet malty finish Likeable and rural Helles. 14.XI.07

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, bready notes as well as rather fruity and wooden notes. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Very pleasant brew.

yngwie (14038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, pale golden beer with a white head. The aroma has pale malts on the grainy side, with fruits and flowery notes as well. There’s a fine bitterness in the mouth, balancing the pale malts nicely. Fruity. Medium body, quite dry. Medium lenght finish with nice bitterness. A quite nice beer in many ways, but nothing more than a decent thirst quencher. 090822

Bottle, 4.9%. Mild citric aroma. Hazy pale yellow colour. Small white head. Mildly flowery and grassy hop flavour. Subtle, but refreshing.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Clear yellow with a white head. Sweetish malty nose with a floral touch. Medium body, distinct floral hops that leave a surprisingly bitter finish - considering this being a Helles. 220809
