Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2009
Yellow colored with medium sized white head. Estery-hopped aroma with lemon also. Medium bodied. Flavor is more fruity and smooth in start, aftertaste lasts with some hops and lemon. Nothing special. FrankJohansen (3624) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2009

(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with foamy white medium head. Slightly sweet and light malty nose with grassy hops and peppery spice. Light-sweet flavour, light body, soft carbonation. Quite bland and thin papery malty and slightly grassy hoppy taste. Short, light-bitter finish.

Sampled with omhper, tiggmtl, MartinT, muzzlehatch, and Rastacouere in Montreal. Thanks Stephen (and your neighbor) for this bottle. Sweet grassy aroma with slight pepper and slight DMS notes in the nose. Quite malty, bready, and doughy in the middle with slight hops to finish. Quite smooth and drinkable. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
Initially sweet aroma with some floral hops but slowly creeping pea-soup-like DMS as it warms. Clear golden coloured with thin, white head that diminishes to lighltly ring. Mild DMS in sweet flavour with gentle bitterness. Light in the mouth. Bottle sampled with DYCSoccer17, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Omhper and Rastacouere. omhper (28433) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2004
Bottled. Golden colour, lightly hazy, not much head. Medium sweet with clean rounded mouthfeel and some bready malt. Medium bitterness. Solid. muzzlehatch (4977) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2004
omhper in Montreal #1 (with MartinT,tiggmtl,Rastacouere,DYCSoccer). Light blonde, reasonably fresh, hay and grass and a bit of sharpness to the nose...very heavy carbonation, light, rather dry, straw and paper...nice ending hops. Nothing stellar, but thanks Stephen for this rarity! MartinT (10700) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
The approach of DMS in the aroma seems to have scared a few flavors away...Fine bubbles propel weak pilsner malt and weedy hoppiness...Soft aftertaste vanishes quickly just like the memory of this Helles...
