It’s golden with a creamy, long lasting head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, flower and the flavor has a light/moderate sweetness and notes of malt, grain, bread, fruits and a touch of licorice..?, and the finish is slightly dry. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (kindly delivered by joss!): A bit unclear, medium-sized lacy white head, sweet pale-malty nose with a nice aromatic-hoppy background; moderate bitter-sweetish flavour, light to medium bodied, a bit fizzy; bisquits, pale malt and aromatic hops in the finish. Very good Helles......

bottle, Danke joss! Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Malty body with nice herbal hoppy accents. Bitter-sweet, a bit reminiscent of a Bohemian pale lager. Very nice beer from a very reliable brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, with greetings to Jonas !) Clear, golden colour with a loose foamy white head. Slightly sweet and grainy malty aroma with light to moderate herbal hoppy notes. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Pale malt character, slightly grainy taste with rounded herbal hops; pretty dry and moderately bitter and herbal hoppy finish. A pleasantly straight Bavarian Export. 19.I.10

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2009 Bottle, light nutty and grainy aroma. Deep golden, white foam. Chewy malt base, walnuts and almonds, spicy, balanced to the sweet side, hop stays in the background. Light butterscotch retronasal, yet still sparkly and light on the plate. I have come to appreciate the sweeter and maltier vesions of this style and this is certainly one of them, and masterfully so.
