oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 25, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is slight yeast, bready malts, some slight vegetables along with grass, some earth and herbs. Flavour is bready malty, some vegetables, grass, eath and mild herbs. Quite bittery in the finish. Tonguebiting/.tickling.

darkseduction (582) - 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 (7773) - 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 (8402) - Bochum, 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 !!

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2007

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2006
Bottle, Eiscafé Gunzenhausen. Flowery hoparoma. Malty flavor, milky with a distant hopbitterness. Malty finish with some flowery hops. Unimpressive but OK.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Untill April 2005 called "Spalter Vollbier-Hell". Pale golden with a small head. The locals really hype their Spalter hops, but in my experience they add more bitterness than aroma and aren’t really that refined. This lacks the normal round maltynes associated with the style and comes out more like a typical bitter German pils. 060602
