Pours a crystal clear, bright golden color with a big, foamy head. Smells almost muted with a note of straw and herbal hops. Has a medium carbonation with a soft, aqueous mouthfeel among a light bodied beer. Tastes of sweet oats, toffee, straw and a faint hint of leaves. Got a light dryness to it during the finish with its lively carbonation getting more present, entirey coated by toffee malts, which prevails in the aftertaste. Pleasantly balanced with a well composed, strawy sweet taste.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, malty, spicy, light fruity hints of lemon. Not too dry. Well balanced finish. Quite drinkable. Okay.

0,5 l bottle. Pours out in a darker golden, small white head. Little bit malt and grain on the nose. Starts with malt and grain on a low level, little bit apple, minimal herb. Easy to drin. Typical standard Lager, nothing special.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 8/26/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, grape, pear, apple, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with a large amount of fruitiness present with some pale malt and earthy hops in the background; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish. Nice balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Taste is much more clean and balanced than the nose. A bit on the bland side, but not watery. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid Munich helles. Other than the overly fruity aromas; taste was pleasant, balanced, and clean; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

Jonb5 (494) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Golden colour, clear, fairly lively looking, large foamy head, decent retention, fair amount of lacing. S: Curious mix of noble hops, Bavarian malts and slight yeasty esters, also slight orangy notes. T: Very malt forward, went from sweet to slight charcoal, also had faint grassy notes. M: Light body, moderate carbonation, smooth enough to go down well. O: A good crisp malty refreshing Helles lager, one of thousands, but a very good every day beer.

MichaelAwesome (6377) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
Laffes Lager mit dünnen Momenten von Getreide, etwas Reis und Malz. Dabei jedoch einfach zu trinken und durchaus erfrischend.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of mild hops, straw, mild fruits, caramel and hay. Easy and nice to drink - solid beer.
