KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, - JUL 4, 2013
On tap at the Spitalkeller. Lovely day, my first beer, probably should have rated slightly lower. A fine blend of grainy goodness and aromatic hops, Clear gold, soft carbonation.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2015
From draft at the brewery in Regensburg. Clear sparkling gold with a short white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy and lightly malty with notes of lemon and wildflowers and black pepper with subtle off-notes of detergent. Malt and carbonation is rough and overly-carbonic and grating on the palate, seems to not have been lagered long enough. It’s malty in the mouth with a decent baked cracker Pilsner malt effect, light bodied, bubbly, moderately sweet with medium-low bitterness. The nose shows some promise, and it’s decently malty in the mouth, but the coarseness isn’t very appealing and there’s some sourness in the finish.

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Draught Good, dense yellowish head over totally clear golden beer; lacerings. Fresh malt, even a bit graindust, finely grassy, but also some maltsyrup smell. Sweet - very sweet even - pale malts. Finish is drier, grassy-herbal. Light body, gristslickness. Falls dead tastewise, but feels better carbonated than it looks. Not a bad Helles, but really to the sweet side.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 17, 2015
Yellow color beer with a small white head. Malty and grassy aromas. Flavor is sweet and malty with a balanced nice bitterness. Body is thick and the end is bitter. Carbonation is medium.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Smooth and toasty pils malts greet herbal hops and mineral whispers in this fine Helles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the shiny clear golden.
-Malt structure is refined and bright.
-The fine bubbling leaves plenty of room for the malts to shine.
-I could pound this one regularly.

On tap at Spitalgarten.

Marheb (3536) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2014
(Bue sur place): Mielleux, rond avec une franche finale. Contraste abrupte entre les sucres et l’amertume. Intéressant.

kappldav123 (5597) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle looks very simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, malty, not too dry. A bit metallically. Finish with light fruity-spicy hints. Okay.
