MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2005
(on tap at the Brauhaus, 12.Nov.2005) Clear and pale golden colour with a foamy white diminishing head. Slightly sweet malty aroma with honey and a touch of citrus fruits. Sweet flavour, medium to light body, crispy mouthfeel. Sweet malty taste with a short and slightly alcoholic sweetbitter aftertaste. Not round but bland.

bottle. Clear golden yellow. Malty nose. Full-bodied and quite sweet. Lingering finish with hints of hops and banana.

Pale gold; very airy, fluffy head, leaving... eeeuuhh... German see-through lace? Nose: banana ester!! Is this a Dortmunder - or a Weizen? Bit lactic too. Ends more classical grassy. Roasted cookies, malt taste, and a bit oxidized, buttery notes. Not grainy, but quite malty. Would be quite sweet but for the roasted edge. Light body, but not thin. Limited refreshing qualities. Aftertaste yields again some hints I would expect from a Weizen. Funny. Even when it’s a bit overtime (BBd: 10/04) it presents some unusual characteristics that cannot be linked to its age. One thing’s sure: it’s German.

Bottled. A very light coloured lager beer with nice bubbles. A crisp malty alcohol smell and a nice clean taste. Better than most lager type beers.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Straw-like cereals and herbal hops ride this light lager, as sulfury angles pierce the citrusy fruitiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Generous foam tops the pale yellow.
-The light body and prickly effervescence make for an airy mouthfeel.
-Drinkability is sky high.
-Balance is achieved.

KyotoLefty (8125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2014
Tap at the Hirschgarten in Munich. From old notes. A very nice helles. Rich clean malt, and nice hop flavor and bitterness. Better than most of the others I have had recently, more distinguished, and a lot more hops.

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
Clear, medium yellow beer. White head, no lacing. Light sweet and hopped aroma, something odd aroma...fishy? Light alcohol palate.

DruncanVeasey (7854) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2008
REALLY Lovely fresh hay and herbal grassy hop aroma mingled with grainy malt. Dead lager looks. Smells exactly like a shrub in the back garden. Flavour grainy, grassy and hayish with a flourish of vanilla softness. Tastes like what all lager should taste like. Quality.
