malzmiller (11) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Considered a Helles, it is done in a kellerbier style; unfiltered and hazy. A very drinkable offering. Nothing stellar but very fresh nose. Low carbonation, a good session beer but for the elevated alohol content.

Travlr (19528) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Draft at the source. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head with thin white lacing. Aroma of light citrus. Taste is subtle citrus, raw bread. Light body. OK.

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 25, 2016
Apr ’15. On tap at the brewpub, pouring an extremely hazy, a muddy pale yellow body with a medium sized head. Weak, herbal, lightly sour and muddy yeast aroma. Flavor was more of the same, but not so weak, very chalky, earthy with herbal notes. Thin in body and watery as well. Seemed like it was unfinished. Weird. Might rerate given the new opportunity.

Theydon_Bois (15550) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Keg at the brewpub, 20/07/15. Hazed golden orange with a decent off white cap of bubbles that retains well. Nose is pale malt, orange peel, bread dough, light mandarin notes. Taste comprises straw, citric notes, melon, orange, light bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough citric lead helles.

Beer5000 (5640) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
On tap @ the brewpub (old rating). Very unclear orange body with a big, fluffy, lacing off-white head. Aroma is fruity with lots of yeast and slightly sour. Flavor is sweet malt, fruity, some overripe vegetables, lots of yeast and low bitterness. Medium to thin body. Drinkable but not very impressive.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Hazy yellow colour, white head diminishes fast. Rather malty aroma. Taste is mild, slightly acidic. Full body.

Moravius (1001) - Beijing, CHINA - JAN 4, 2015
Vom Faß im Brauhaus in Spandau. - Dunkles Orangegelb, sehr trüb. - Nase hefig mit etwas „grünen“, unreifen Hopfennoten. - Im Antrunk dominiert die Hefe, gefolgt von mildem, frisch zitronigem Hopfen. Zart karamellige Malzsüße. Mild rezent, schlank, sehr süffig. Mild grasiger, schwach hopfenherber Abgang mit kühlender Minze. Wenig bitterer aber etwas grün und unrund wirkender Nachtrunk. - Angenehmerer Vertreter der Gattung Gasthausbrauereien-Bier, etwas hefig-unausgereift wie die meisten, aber süffig und erfrischend. Mir fehlt bei solchen Bieren der kernig-gerstige Charakter, den nur gut abgelagerte und ausgereifte Biere haben.

Bamsen78 (4779) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2014
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!

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
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.

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
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!
