Quack-Duck (8072) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2008
bottle. Clear golden yellow. Malty nose. Full-bodied and quite sweet. Lingering finish with hints of hops and banana.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2005
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.

crossovert (7894) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2011
This one seems a bit better than the Helles, it is a bit sweeter and it doesn’t seem as industrial.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2005
Draught at GBBF, August 2005. Pale straw colour. Mainly malty throughout. Bready and doughy. Not much hop presence or bitterness. I prefer my lagers a bit more zippy than this.

rosenbergh (7370) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2010
500 ml bottle. From Germany (beerangel.com).
Clear golden colour with small white head. Grassy (some rubber) hoppy aroma. Bitter grassy hoppy flavour. Some grainy maltiness in aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, 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.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Quinns. Lightly hoppy and generally boring helles. Certainly drinkable, nothing offensive in anyway, just very very dull.

motelpogo (6968) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2003
very pale with a good greenish tinge. typical helles aroma of honey and hay. quite bitter and tangy and good sticky. nothing out of this world but still well-made and enjoyable

Hansen (6878) - 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.

KyotoLefty (6704) - 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.
