Reviewed 2/24/13. Thanks to Momar42 for this German curiosity! 500ml bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a very pale straw color featuring excellent carbonation. The head is a two finger whIte color. It fades at a moderate clip, and leaves nice patches of lacing going down. S: It’s a typical aroma for the style - lots of grassy hops, unobtrusive malts, and some diacetyl. I’d say the latter is a bit more prevalent than I’d like, but a fairly good aroma otherwise. T: At first, the buttery diacetyl presence (just like in the aroma) comes fairly strongly. Luckily, it smooths out into nicely crisp, hoppy bite on the finish. Some slight fruitiness will try to build up, as well. Not ultra interesting, but about what I expect from the style. M: Light and crisp to be sure - but sadly the finish and aftertaste isn’t as dry as I’d like here. For that reason, it lacks great drinkability. It’s got good carbonation, at least. O: Not bad. I’d say this one is a notch or two below the best of the style, though. Worth a try.

Schlumpfhunter (77) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2016
Farbe: Helles klares Gold Schaum: mittel, bleibt immer was da. Nase: nur leicht, nach hm Gerste, etwas Keller, ein bissen Säure und bitter. Geschmack: viel Kohlensäure aber feinsprudelig frisch, Säure und Bitterkeit ausgewogen. Runder leicht süßer Abgang. Dann Getreide und Hopfen, schmeckt nach Gras. Schwer zu beschreiben aber nach sicher 100 Gläsern kann ich sagen, dass das das beste Helle aller Zeiten ist. Süffig, erfrischend, ausgewogen, genügend feine Kanten, und leckerer Nachgeschmack, schwer beschreibbar, ein bisschen Kräuter wie ein Almdudler ist da dabei.

SinH4 (1605) - Garching, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2016
Golden color with white head. Aroma is sweet grains, a bit yeasty, not as malty as one expects. Taste is dry, slightly tart, overall quite light. Medium carbonation. Standard Helles, boring but ok.

50cl bottle on 03-Jan-2015, brought back as a gift from Frankfurt. Poured into a tankard. Clear golden pale colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grain and sweet malt. Light body and medium carbonation. Lightly hopped, with flavour of grain, malt and a bittersweet finish. A refreshing German lager.

A great helles. Low mittelfrueh and pilsner malt aroma. Good malt flavor, less rich than Augustiner. Great bitterness for a helles. Very well brewed helles.

Adjunct free but otherwise rather unremarkable. Strong off-hop aroma, slightly more rounded mouthfeel than a pilsner perhaps, but not much else to brag about here. Not really recommended (from a Berlin night shop)
