kappldav123 (5480) - GERMANY - MAY 26, 2010
The bottle looks very simple, almost like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass better, zippy, nice head. Starts mild, spicy-grasy, soft-hoppy notes in the background. All in all quite mild, but not washy. Very drinkable. Good beer!

darkseduction (657) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle 50cl. Nice golden coloured, bright white head. Nice palate, slim body, nice decent hoppy touch, typical for a Dortmunder. In the aftertaste a little bit watery. Easy to drink, a beer for the summertime.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2008
What a pleasant surprise to find a Franconian beer in the Black Forest! - bottle, bought in Rottweil. Clear golden yellow colour, large white head. Malty nose. Medium-bodied, pleasantly malty with some spicy and grassy hops, very well balanced. A very nice Helles!

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - NOV 3, 2008
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a big and blonde foamy white head. Slightly sweet and dusty, also a bit soapy pale malty nose with traces of grains and a whiff of herbal, slightly woody hops. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Initially malty, slightly chalky and minimal grainy taste with a growing bitterness towards the finish which is quite dry and moderately herbal and bitter hoppy. Rather hoppy for a Helles, nevertheless no highlight (20.X.08).

Bottle thanks to Ungstrup. Light yellow - white head. Straw, corn, cactus, grass, bitter, eeg, dry-bread (knækbrød), hay. Boring !!
