Bierkrug (2133) - - JAN 12, 2009
500 ml bottle in Germany. When compared to their other beers it might seem to some to be a disapointment but as a stand alone Helles this is everything a Helles should be. One of the better Helles that you can find anywhere. But most people dont understand what a Helles is.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2007
Plank Helles Lager. Dull golden colour. Grassy, bready nose. Bready, herbal character. Some light bitterness. Tasty brew.

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.

Wanja (673) - GERMANY - NOV 6, 2013
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...

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

lusikka (6523) - 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.

CapFlu (4610) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
(Bottle) Lasting white foamy head with a highly carbonated golden body. Nose is corn bread. The flavour brings out a mild tin taste. Good. Thanks Joss!

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle, 4.9%. Mild citric aroma. Hazy pale yellow colour. Small white head. Mildly flowery and grassy hop flavour. Subtle, but refreshing.

stevoj (2320) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2013
50cl bottle courtesy of Bierkrug. Light golden in color, airy head, aroma of vegetables, malt. Mildly dry and abrupt finish. Better than average hellos.

mile (3118) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, and light grassy hoppyness. Light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint bread, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light - some grassy hoppyness. Dryish helles with OK biterness.
