KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2014
Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Medium bodied, malty beer. Not very special, mild and lacking in hops compared to the pils, but good.

One of the world’s classic beers. I love the natural smell and flavor that you get with German beer, and this is a great example. It smells like a brewhouse floor. In a good way. Straw, malt, pale yellow color. A truly great Helles.

JulienHuxley (2990) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at the brewery restaurant. Clear pale gold pour with white head. Really really grainy aroma, most yet for a helles, intense floral bouquet, fresh grain, meadow aromas, honey, pollen. Taste is like a fine czech pils minus the saaz, so bready, fluffy sweet, honey. Light palate with smooth silky carb. My best helles yet.

50cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a small white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Refreshing bitterness with some sweet tones. Hay, grass, malts and herbs. A well balanced but not too special brew.
