MiP (14481) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, 4.7% as Riedenburger Ur-Helles. Spicy hop aroma. Hazy very pale yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has a distinctly floral aroma hop with a heavy dose of paper thrown in. Low bitterness. After a while one gets used to the paper and it turns in to a more than decent Zwickel thing. Has some fruit, apple going on when chugged. Slightly citric, a bit like apple juice.

Bamsen78 (4446) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear pale straw with airy white head. Celar aroma of yeast, with notes of hops and touches of malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with grainy and estery notes and touches of malt. Bitter and estery aftertaste with notes of paper. Nothing special but easily drinkable.

500ml bottle as “Riedenburger ur-Helles” bought at Biorganic’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.

Translucent, slightly dull golden honey colour; One finger head and white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Small sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of full malt, with molasses, faint honey, strong bread, dough, light yeast and faint lemon; Close to light sweet taste of light lager malt, with light molasses, white bread, light dough, yeast, very light lemon, thin bitter hops and light strawy grass; Light body, thin palate; Mouth feel is thin body lager base, driven by light molasses, fair white bread and dough. Very low hops. No off-tastes. A bit dull but okay… Hoppiness is faint lemon in nose, light lemon and straw taste. Bitterness is very low-fi for a very abrupt, malty-thin bitter non-finish; Quite dry after taste; Very easy to mouth.

Comments: Typical Riedenburger’s dull colour sets the tone for this light Helles: thin but malty body, moderate molasses and doughty bread, negligible hops. All these make for easy, undemanding drinking. Pretty faultless but dull and unmemorable.

McTapps (5847) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle as Riedenburger Ur-Helles. Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, apples, mild citrus fruits, straw, hay and herbs. Refreshing and with a mild but grainy finish.

Typical German lager beer. Grainy, malty and with some mild hopping. Very traditional, glad they started to make some craft beer as well.
