500ml on tap (Holzfass) in Aying. Aroma is light apple, sweet-ish, light yeast, light pineapple, wheat - very rich for a Helles. Appearance is pale golden with a fine white head. Taste is light sweet and just a little sour. Some bitterness in the end. Very balanced mouth feel. Light and very fine, creamy feeling after a sip. Soft carbonation and long lasting after taste. This is a superb Helles - and very different from a Holzfass than from a bottle. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2010

Bar, Helsinki) Clear golden color with a smallish, tight head. Mildly malty aroma with distinctive asparagus and cooked vegetables, plus some grassy hops. Asparagus also dominates the slightly metallic, buttery and sweetish-alcoholic-honeyish flavor. Slicky-sugary, not very carbonated, medium-bodied palate. Quite refreshing bock with reasonably hidden alcohol. Still warming.
Sampled draught at The Swan, Helsinki, Finland.
Pale bronze colour, brief head. Light grassy hop aroma. Very malty with beautiful malt structure. Soft and buttery. Medium bitterness.
