Draught @ the brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of hops and malt. Rough, estery flavour, with bitter, hoppy notes. Faint touches of malt. Heavy, dry, rough aftertaste. Not bad!

My first beer of the three at the Brauhaus during a visit on a very cold early evening on 19th Jan 2014. Murky orange body, the full head hung around for most of the drink. Grassy, citrusy and bready notes in the aroma, some yeast hints as well. The taste was fruitier but with the aforementioned grassy, citrus and bread smells also noticeable in the flavours within the mouth. Full bodied for a Helles and also fairly full of flavour. Not bad at all, my wife liked this the most of the on-tap beers we tried in the place.

Knallig orange, trüb mit viel Schaum. Hefig-fruchtiges Aroma nach grünem Apfel. Startet malzbetont und geht in eine trockene, aromatische Hopfenherbe über. Süffiges Zechbier aus Spandau, wah!

Hazy golden, small white head. Aroma is grassy. taste is fresh made bread, grass. Bitter finish. probably the best keller I had in my life after Mahr’s U. By the way, I bet in a blind taste one will hardly get the differences between these two beers.

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2012
[tap at Brauhaus Spandau as Havelbrau Hell] Opaque peach colour, large white head. Some wheat sweetness, but also lemon, like a mild sweet lemonade. Very smooth and mild on the palate, good mouthfeel. Highly drinkable, not much evidence of alcohol on the flavour. Unfined, but little yeast profile on the flavour other than a slight marzipan edge to the finish. Really very nice indeed, had three of these interspersed with the schwartzbier [19042012]

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2011
On tap at Hell oder Dunkel as ’Naturbier Hell’. Hazy golden with a rocky, creamy bright white head and lace. Pleasanlty malty and spritzy nose. Lots of crisp carbonation, lightly malty taste with some mild yeasty-fresh bread at the finish. Just a touch of citrus and maybe a little mint. Low bitterness, low sweet fruitiness, med-full body. Too much for sessioning but like it well enough.

On draft at ’Hell oder Dunkel’. Hazy, honey-golden body with meringue-like white head that jiggles and hangs around. Floral noble hop aroma is dominant followed by bright, summery malt that moves into honeyish territory. Malt flavor is sweet - again in the direction of honey - with a noticeable grainy quality that approaches cereal. Light berryish esters are present and hops are there in the background. Medium body with fairly high, prickly carbonation. A little chalky. Malt forward, but hop bitterness washes through at the end. Light mineral presence in the finish. Good beer!
