DrnkMcDermott (2835) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
Bottled. Not quite a thrill a minute, but decent as German pilsnener-type lagers go. Pours a frothy head with big bubbles over a familiar German straw colord body. Low carbonation leaves a pleasing tickle. Somewhat doughy/biscuity malt action nicely counterbalanced by hops, unfortunately, its means neither is very noticeable. Goes down pretty nicely, at least. A touch of hop-bitter aftertaste remains on the tongue.

Cunningham (4918) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2014
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Caramel malty, herbal hoppy and some fruity notes in the aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, herbal hoppy, mild fruity and a bit grassy flavor. Decent helles.
[Bottle from a grocery store in Copenhagen, Denmark]

mansquito (3561) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
The Beer Store, Southampton PA 50cl: Pours light golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sugar, biscuit, and a hint of hops. Taste is pretty sweet, with some light notes of honey. Some bread. Finish is the downside for me. I did not really enjoy that part. Otherwise, an easy-drinking German lager.

bartlebier (1974) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2014
50cl bottle, Maruhn (backlog - had this a while back). Elegant and lean, perfect quaffer of an old school Helles: crisp biscuit malts laying a suave foundation for gentle noble hops, with a tinge of citrus and a very clean finish. Little sweetness, minimal graininess. Great, fresh and unpresuming sessioner.

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Clean, dark brown with active head of fine beige bubbles. Aroma is sweet biscuit malt, light kvass, and plums. Medium to light bodied. Mild fruit, some hop spiciness and lots of seme-sweet malts. Everything fits together nicely. Enjoyed.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Mmm...toasty, malty and slightly bready. Crisp and clean, and so easy drinking. This is by far the best helles I have had. Body is medium full. Slight grainy flavor. Bitterness is low. Palate has almost a creamy texture. Finish is pure malt flavor. Could totally see myself drinking this all day in Munich.

MiamiBarman (34) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Poured out a slightly dark goldish color and slightly hazy with a generous white puffy head that left lacing alongside the glass. It actually deceptively almost looks like a Hefeweizen. The aroma is mostly floral with minor notes of vanilla and citrus. Medium bodied and pleasant refreshing taste. Not overly bitter and very easy-drinking.

WillemsUrenkel (646) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2014
0,5 l bottle. Golden in the glass with a big white head. Grainy on the nose. Starts low grainy with citrus hints, not very spicy. Later little bit malty, low bitterness, citrus. Easy to drink, but I missed the spicy notes.

BelgiskOlklub (921) - Viby J, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2014
Clear light golden body and a rocky white head that is diminishing fastly. Aroma of yeast, butter and flowers. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. The finish is bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbonation.
