COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good beer takes time. The long lager time makes our pale beer a matter of mild, flavourful beer enjoyment. Brewed in accordance with a centuries-old beer tradition on Weihenstephan Hill.

Maybe I bought a bad bottle. Skunky, I could smell it as soon as I opened it. Tasted better than it smelled.

Bottle. Has a small white head and is a deep gold with a lot of sediment. Light aroma of grass and lemons. The taste is almost sickly sweet at first, like pineapple. Also, there are some malty notes rpesent. A bite later on with the carbonation. This is drinkable, but not great.

500mL Bottle, 05.14.04 Pours quite pale, slightly clouded golden. Small head quickly fades. Aromas are nice, though light hints of pale malts and honey. Not much body, nor complexity. This is, however, a nice alternative to bigger beers. Yep, mostly malts and honey are what I’m tasting. Finishes somewhat sour...huh.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2004
The aroma here is so mild as to elude immediate noticeability. The appearance is an orangish blonde (more blonde). The flavour is light and somewhat shy, malty and somewhat bready. This tastes like a German light beer. And I didn’t know the Germans *did* light beers - somewhat disappointing.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2004
Brightly clear, light golden dulled yellow color with a thin white frothed cap that faded off quickly. Smell has a nice crisp and clean herbal essence with a soft, fresh bread roll dough. Quite nice, a firm crispness and sweet doughy breading for its nose, which really comes together as it warms. Taste is a nice crisp and clean hop, some dried herbal variants float around that are light and airy with a nice and firm bread dough sweetish malt backing. Totally reminds me of the dough used for white bread rolls or cresent rolls. Feel is a bit lighter on the body but the super clean, super crispness makes up for the lack there of. Kinda sweet and very smooth, quick crispness at first with a lightly dry breadish souring finish thats nice. A pretty darn good Helles thats easy, clean, crisp, and drinkably good. Yum.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours transparent gold, with a large, quickly diminishing head. A good lager flavor, dominated by malts. Much better than your typical lagers, but don't expect a lot of flavor here. Smooth and drinkable.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 Bready aroma. Bready, malty, clean taste, but finishes dry and a little spicy. Hoppy for a helles. Excellent actually.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2004
Light gold. Nose is malty, a bit bready, some hops. Flavor is doughy malts, a bit of hops. Has a nice hint of sweetness, finishes crisp. High on the refreshment scale.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2004
Looks like a typical lager. Golden body, bubbly white head. Strongly effervescent. Aroma is bland but clean with a hint of malt and not much more. Tastes metallic with some malt and hops presence. Finishes with a bit of alcohol. Overall, not bad but I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

Clear light golden color with a moderate white head. Mild malts are prevalent and there's little bitterness. Again, just OK.
