Huge pillowy white head, nice crystal clear golden color. Aroma of malt, grains, fresh baked bread, some slight sweetness. Light, but still substantial body... not watery. Predominantly malty flavors are balanced by some slight sweetness, yeast, citrus-like acidity, and hops... nice dry finish. It would be easy to drink a ton of these. Not really a favorite style of mine, but I’d definitely like to have these around when doing some heavy drinking. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of bread dough, malt, citrus. Medium body. Starts sweet, ends slightly bitter. Refreshing but not remarkable. biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2006
This is a gorgeous lager, DORTMUND style. Brings me back to my summer in Dortmund, ah, the good ol’ days. This is a nice creamy lager, with a delicious hoppy bite. Yum. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Bottled. Pours a cloudy straw with a lacy, substantial, persistent white head. The aroma is flowery with some grassy and spicy notes. The body is creamy, medium with moderate carbonation. The taste is nuts, cookie dough, malt, with a clean, somewhat dry spicy finish. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 Stuff has a nice malt accent, rounded mouthfeel, and an earthy dryness. Crisp and enjoyable. I must revisit this, haven’t tasted it in many moons.

Bottle 51F Lager. Light sweet malty notes, but very light on the malt, clean aroma, just a little and very little spice to it. White decent head, with good lacing, a slighty cloudy straw appearance, very nice, good looking array of bubbles. Nice taste, very clean, more sour notes than sweet, but finishes very dry, and crisp. Hops are present at the finish, and taste noble, very drying effects on the tongue. Good taste nice and very crisp, reminds me of a semillion. Palate is moderate with medium carbonation. Good feel in the mouth, feels substatial but easily drinkable. The more I drink it the more I like it. A decent brew overall. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Thanks bro (Beer_Hawk) for sending this brew my way. It pours with a golden body topped by a thick, white head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a touch of caramel adn a bit of grassy hops. Light to medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2006
this beer was light and refreshing. good with dinner and great standing alone. I’m surprised this didn’t rate higher by others, I was impressed ganache (5901) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Clear yellow-golden with an energetic white head. Aroma is strongly malty wtih sweetness and a touch of hops. Huge malt taste. Clean and fresh, a little earthy, and a trace of hops in the middle and endgame. Mostly light and sweet but with a semi-dry finish and even some grass. Fantastic warm weather beer, tons of malt and an appealing feel. A fav Helles. Thanks, joss! TheLeadDog (101) - Kent, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
A good German beer Thick long lasting head. Nice earthy taste with great hops and malt flavors. Nice yellow color with perfect fizz. A good beer for a hot day. Light enough for Summer but not to heavy if one or two is not enough.
