3fourths (8345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
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.

Bottle. Sweet barley malt and light grass hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with small head and mild effervescence. Sweet creamy malt flavor and lightly bitter grass hops flavor. Nice smooth body. Very nice.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
#439 Hellgelbes Lagerbier mit viel grobporigem Schaum. Im Aroma ziemlich hopfig. Der Antrunk ist erfrischend und äußerst liquide. Im Geschmack kommt zwar zuerst das Malz zum vorschein, doch der Hopfen behält klar die Oberhand. Zwar atypisch für ein Helles, dennoch ein angenehmes und süffiges Bier. Test vom 8.3.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,12,10,10,10 - 10,30

darkseduction (638) - 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.

kappldav123 (5279) - 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!

Quack-Duck (8338) - 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!

Maria (10188) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
It’s light-golden with a huge, creamy, white head, and the aroma is mild with notes of malt, bread and flower. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of flower, malt, biscuits, straw, and the finish is dry – a refreshing beer.
