3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Probably the best helles I’ve had. Man, Andechs continues to deliver. Light golden pour, white head, nice lacing. Aroma of hay, sugary cereal, and lemon. Flavor is sublimely balanced. There is a solid sweetness hiding in there, but the lemony hops add just the right amount of bitterness to lend the brew a clean, refreshing finish. Despite the mild nature of the flavors involved (lemon, pale malty sweetness) this beer manages the be pretty flavorful. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Coats the tongue nicely. Good beer.
Drinked in bottle bb 21.8.18. On the nose green hay , green summer herbs, some pale breadcrumb in the end some metallic minerals. In mouth is light bodied, a bit harsh and dry at the beginning, after a few seconds important hay flavour comes back. Not a special after taste. Monty27 (18) - - DEC 22, 2017
Nice clear appearance, slightly but pleasantly bitter. Quite strong for this type of lager, producing a light tingle. Quite a standard lager, not as special as the name suggests. Towey1989 (3435) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of bready malts, cereal, slight toasted grains, a little straw and subtle herbal hops. Taste of bready malts, cereal, slight toasted grains, a little honey, a hint of straw and subtle herbal hops. Light to medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A soft, dryish, honeyed malt bitterness in the finish. A sweet malty lager as expected but flavourful and high quality. I think I’ve found my new favourite German Helles. ischas (867) - - NOV 19, 2017

Bottiglia da 50 cl, color oro limpido, brillante con schiuma bianca di media tenuta. Al naso malto e cereali così come al palato con inizio dolcino maltato e finale leggermente amaro, buon corpo. Beverina è dissetante. NachlamSie (3597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Super clear beer, I've gotten used to seeing this on my trip through Germany. It's nice. Hearty cereal aroma on this one. It's a little sweeter and heavier than the other helles I've had this week. Very low hop presence and just a touch fruity. Sweet and quick finish. Nice pilsner malt flavor. kustie (1381) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2017

Golden. Exceptionally sweet with a very light texture. Not very special at all. romanstep (723) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 25, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie, drożdże, trochę łąki ziołowo-kwiatowej, w tle minimalna słodowość. Barwa złota, idealnie klarowne, piana początkowo dość ładna, szybko redukuje się do zera. W smaku ziołowe, lekko słodowe, całość trochę mdława, ale to chyba przypadłość tego stylu. Goryczka niska ziołowa. Butelka do 26.06.2018.
