This typical bottom fermented lager is particularly mild and palatable - the ideal beer for all those who love a beer with a low bitter value. This beer has a pure and fruity flavour and is brewed using the 2 mashing method - a beer for adults of all ages.

Luvystypotables (1295) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Pours a hazy gold colour with a lasting white, well laced head. Aroma of malt and bread with grassy notes. Medium body, lightly carbonated with a pleasant reasonably well balanced taste of light malt. Mildly bitter finish.

Draught at the brewpub. Not bad, quaffable but tastes a bit boring. Ok I had this after the Pils, which is extremely tasty here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (8492) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Deep orange-golden color, very cloudy. Malty nose, diacetyl, bit of orange. Too much diacetyl, and not enough hops to cover it, biscuits, sweet, creamy, also a bit of tart orange. Not terrible, but doesn’t work with all that diacetyl.

MarkoNm (1996) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 28, 2014
Served hazy golden color, topped with a nice white head. Little malts in the nose, some bready notes as well. Taste is sweet, fruity with mild breadiness and very moderate bitterness. Decent and refreshing.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden colour, creamy white head leaving lacework. Intensive, lovely aromatic floral hop aroma. Light and elegant malty base with lots of aromatic hops with hints of hay, freshly-mown lawn, herbs and a floral touch. Smooth and velvety palate, a touch fo yeast is present. Perfectly balanced. I could drink this all night. Surprising, how tasty a simple Helles can be - this is pure delight.

Cunningham (6245) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
Appearance: Hazy pale golden color with a fine white head that ends up in a white laver. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Grainy and mild hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average to soft carbonation.
Taste: Grainy, grassy and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: Decent thirst quencher if you have walk all around Vienna. A bit to grassy for me.
Personal stats: On tap @ source

aronvarga (428) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2014
Tap @ Salm-Braeu. Cloudy, golden color, short-life small sized white head, grainy and yeasty aroma, light body, decent fizziness for me, slight sweet malty taste, moderate herbal hoppy palate. Nothing special, but drinkable.

At the Brewpub. Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is soft to dry with fine carbonation. Fresh! Mild minerals. Semi dry malt with a whisper of something fruity before a crisp finish. The freshness carries this otherwise bordering-on-bland beer.

300ml vom fass at the brewpub. Shared with Frau Eva. Golden body, slightly cloudy. Dissipating white head. Dry sweet hoppy aroma. Sweet fruity aroma with notes of pale malts. Slightly watered and rather anonymous (Wien, 28.07.2012).
