This beer is our speciality. In 1894 Spaten became the first brewery in Munich to produce this brand of light lager. Golden in color with a well-balanced hop-flavor. The full rounded body is a superb balance between hops and a malty sweetness.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - APR 5, 2012
This pours a nice golden color with minimal head. The taste is sweet and grainy. Definately has the bitter beer smell and after taste.

Mycket god pilsner. Smakar som urtypen av en öl. Härlig skumkrona och vacker färg. Världsklass.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains mostly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more grain. One-dimensional.

It has a light golden colored body with very good clarity and some visible streams of carbonation. The head on top is light and foamy, bright white in color and fades out quickly. The aroma is very light with just a hint of pale malt and grassy/floral hop notes. The flavor is simple crisp and refreshing with a light to medium body. There is a thin biscuity malt balanced by floral and somewhat grassy hops that bring mild but balanced bitterness. The finish is quick and fairly dry with active cleansing carbonation.

500 ml bottle, bottled 14/5 2014, bought at Systembolaget Crisp, dry and clear with a malty and sweetish finish. Nicely carbonated where the foam quickly disintegrates and leaves a small lace at the rim. Pilsner'ish smell of dough and cooked vegetables. Overall: Easy drinking thirst quencher on a hot day, still a distinctive Munchener/Helles feel and taste. A good option to the usual macro pilseners ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ruigo (1005) - PORTUGAL - JUN 20, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, hay and hops. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is slightly more sweet than bitter with some hops at finish. Overall, an average beer, drinkable but not remarkable.

Hallstein (110) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Aroma of grains, dust, and some malt. Well balanced with a prominent bitterness that balances the flavors of malt, grains, cereal, slight sulfur and a teeny amount of diacetyl. Not too bad, but not too good either.

esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle aquired at some random systembolag
Golden clear, big white head. Smell of dust, spices, some cooked vegetables. Light sweet, super dry, very crisp and super clean. Finish of with a moderate bitter finish. Totally not very exciting, but helles has never been the most interesting style by default

Icedwarf (256) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2014
Geel bier met schuim. Smaak is gemiddeld bitter en niet zoet. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Goed bier.
