Einzigartig dank Spelzentrennung und uraltem Schrotmaischverfahren. Die Spelze (das ist die Schale des Malzes, in der bittere Gerbstoffe sitzen) wird beim Schroten (so nennt der Riegele Brauer das Mahlen des Malzes) vom Korn getrennt und nicht mit eingemaischt (mit Wasser vermischt) - deshalb so mild.

The best beer I have tasted, and I’ve sampled many over the years. The taste and particularly the aroma, are simply sublime.

ContemplateBeer (1926) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Springhurst); split four ways. Aroma: Semi-dry cereal with an abiding grassiness that reminds me of German Pilsners; very clean and inviting. Appearance: Yellow pour with light streams of carbonation supporting a patchy white head. Flavor: Assertively grassy up front; malts more subtle and leave a whisper of sweetness, leading to a dry, grassy finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: It’s a superbly done Helles; probably the best German example I’ve found stateside, especially from a bottle.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 27, 2002
quite curious. strong rockmelon aroma. surprisingly prickly then a little sweet and with a satisfying meaty dry finish. one of the better and more interesting helles around

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Draught, The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Pale lacy flute wafting with fresh herbal hop, honey, hay and chick pea. Lemony, grassy hop melding into honey and crackerbread malt. Immaculate.

bartlebier (3217) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
50cl bottle sample @"Alles IPA? - Craft anders" ProBierclub Seminar, Braukunst Live München 2014, FR. This beer is all about the taste and learning about the textures of layered malts created by a work-intense old gristing procedure does pay off when sampling. Delicate sandcake pale malts, spelt, hay all add to a strange thick texture for a Helles/Export made palatable by its slight wood astringency. Otherwise mildly hopped like any other Export, but the texture and mouthfeel are astounding, if not thirst-quenching.

jonas (6540) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Bottle. Honeyish and fruity malty aroma, aromatic hops. Deep golden, lacing foamy head. Malt dominates, sweet, subtle aromatic hops, light bitter finish. Medium body, quite chewy. Well crafted.

lello4ever (512) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Birra cruda, cioè non pastorizzata e quindi da consumare in breve tempo, prodotta dall’ottima Riegele. Si tratta di una Dortmunder bionda e con una importante schiuma, di cui spicca molto il malto. L’amaro è presente ma accompagna solo, rendendo la birra più fresca e beverina. Ben riuscita.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2012
Ir’s golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, flower and hints of soap. The flavor has a light/moderate sweetness with notes of malt, bread, flower, straw, and the finish is dry with some grassy hops shining through.
