Pours clear with white head. Aroma is cereal and malty. Flavour is grains, metal and even notes of glue. This is a somewhat disappointing beer by a great brewery.

Silky liquid corn flakes cereal. One of the best Helles beers out there. Aroma is light and appearance is right for the style pale pale yella with some head that never quits. Extremely malty with little to no bitterness. Finish is nice balanced malts and a wee bit sweet. Really great example of the style. Simple and satisfying.

Bottle at home. Pours golden with medium sized white head. Aroma of bready maltiness that differs from most lagers. The aroma is more intense than average lager. Hint of hops there as well. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Good.

500ml bottle into weizen glass. Grainy, peppery aroma. Pale hazy yellow beer with towering white head and constant fine carbonation. Sweet grainy flavour, easy drinking. Finish is sweet and slightly spicy. Pretty standard German quaffer.

Wow this stuff is delicious. Golden pour with thin but clingy white top. Aroma is bready with faintest hop just detectable. Flavor is remarkable bready malt that’s so smooth and a little sweet mid-sip. Finishes clean. Simple and fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best lager beers but still lacking behind ale beers. White head is nice, it just needs a bit more bitternes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From chilled bottle spilled gently in to lager glass. A quick aroma of thin breads w/sharp edged crust. A color of high yellow and spread goldings.
I like it.
The six pack I purchased had labeled bottles stating "Original Premium Premium Bavaricum" and the handle "Original Premium".
What the Helles.
Good stuff, this.
