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.

Shaney (2424) - 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 (686) - 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 (5810) - 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!

Clear golden with a large off white head. Malty aroma with hints of hops and straw. Flavour had quite a few grassy hops, malt and caramel hints. Finished dry and bitter.

3fourths (8962) - 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)
