What context are these reviews supposed to be from? The Veldensteiner beer, when in Germany is going to taste a lot better than the Veldensteiner you get in the states. When I drank it in Germany it was the best tasting beer I have ever had. However, I am pretty sure they add preservatives to all export beer since it has to stay fresh longer. This will definitely affect the taste.

Překvapivě dobré bavorské. Jen mě překvapilo, že je typově Dortmunder, nechutnalo tak. Lahváč z Pivoňky.

Perfect pour, and in the words of my 4 year old daughter, the beer looks like a superhero...Tea colored with a thick white head coming above the glass. Sweet biscuit and honey aroma. Sweet, toasty, caramel malt flavor with a long finish. Crisp germanic helles flavor.

Nice slightly hazy golden coloured body with a frothy white head - tons of bubbles rise from the bottom as well, which makes for a nice look! Aroma of refreshing malt, citrus, yeast, wheat and some fresh cut grass. Medium-bodied; Very fruity citrus flavours roaming through this one with a bit of a floral essence and finishes with a clean malt - very nice. Aftertaste is crisp and refreshing, not much hops, but plenty of smooth malt. Overall, a nice and potent helles good for the summertime without doubt! I sampled this 500 mL swing-top bottle purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 26-April-2008.

Jonb5 (508) - 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.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with huge amount of billowing froathy white head. Looks delicious. Aroma is sweet light malts and grass. Flavor is light and sweet, bit grassy. Perfect lawmower beer, which I had just done, so I thought this was perfect. But seriously, a very good lager/dortmunder balancing refreshment with character.

So ein schönes ploppen beim öffnen der Bügelflasche hatte ich noch nie, dagegen sieht selbst die Flensburger Werbung lahm aus. Ich kann nur die hier geschriebenen Wertungen wiederholen: malzig, süffig, leicht wässrig. Der Nachgeschmack ist gut gelungen. Test vom 9.3.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,9,13,11,11 - 10,80

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.
