Bottled, from Biershop Bayern. Clear golden, rocky head. Mild floral hop aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Fruity with some bread and floral grassy hops. Long bitter drying finish. Quality helles with focus on the excellent local hops.

WillemsUrenkel (1080) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Golden in the glass, big white head. Low grainy on the nose. Taste is grainy, hay, low bready bitterness. Just a "Brotzeitbier", nothing special, but well brewed.

Moravius (908) - Beijing, CHINA - JUN 19, 2014
Vom Faß im Biergarten „Republik Frank und frei“, Berlin. - Goldgelb, klar. - Geruch mild aber mit dem spröden Charme des trocken-würzigen Spalter Hopfens. - Auch im Antrunk trockene, grasig-krautige Hopfenwürze, wenn auch sehr mild. Noten von Petersilie. Blasses Malz, aber schön trocken, nicht süß; etwas Butter. Mild rezent. Schwach bitterer Abgang; kurzer, trockener Nachtrunk. - Etwas untypisches Helles, das die aromatischen Vorzüge des Spalter Hopfens so gut zur Geltung bringt, wie das im Rahmen eines Hellen überhaupt möglich ist, im ganzen aber zu mild bleibt.

MichaelAwesome (6007) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
Nettes Helles mit einer klassichen Buttrigkeit, etwas Vanille und ausgewogener Sueffigkeit, Erfrischend und leicht suess. Dazu ein klein wenig Getreide. Nett.

McTapps (6044) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and bread. Taste of hops, light malt, barley, grains, mild fruits and caramel. Easy and nice to drink - solid brew.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Bottle best by April 2014.
Juicy, expressive lemon / herb Spalter hops with baked sourdough Pilsner malt.
Semi-sweet, hoppy and relatively bitter, closer to Pilsner than Helles typically are.
Medium-light body, mineral water, mild potato starch notes.
Clean presentation, a little too course / husky, but nicely hoppy.
After finding a ton of diacetyl in their Pils at the Nürnberg Bierfest in May I’m happy to find this one in good shape. (3.9)

Retry November 2015, the aroma has notes of fabric and soap, not really showing much malt or hop authenticity. Still it’s clean in the mouth, fluffy and creamy, but not the near-4.0 experience from two years ago. (3.3)
