500 ml bottle poured a clear bright yellow with a small white head. Aromas of bread dough, yeast, and some fruity notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of citrus, honey, bread and yeast with a crisp sweet finish. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2006
500ml Bottle into glass. Pours a a bright, thin yellow with a foamy white head that sticks around for a bit. The aroma fainitly gives a lemony citrus smell, while also a hint of yeast. The flavor comes off very rich in malt and yeasty flavors with a sweet hint of honey mixed in there somewhere. Hops are just barely involved, while also a small hint of fruit near the mildly bitter finish. Another great Ayinger brew!

Pale golden yellow, dense white pad leaving lots of lace. Faintly lemony aroma, sweet. Rich malt palate, vaguely fruity with a pleasant bitter finish. Tasty and drinkable. thegreenrooster (4364) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2006
Pour is a bright yellow lemonaid lookalike. Aroma is bready and yeasty. Flavor is dusty and malty. Hops are in there somewhere but don’t stand out. Overall pretty tasty for a lager and prob one of the better helles i have had. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - APR 13, 2006
Nice malty and bready aroma follows a pour that is a light clear yellowish golden. The head is of decent size but short lasting. The malty flavor comes through at the forefront along with a hoppish finish on the palate.

malty bread aroma, floral notes. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow, thin head. Flavour is light and crisp, grassy. Finish is clean. Light bitter finish. Nice summer drinking beer. MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 10, 2006
(bottle from joss – thanks !) Clear golden colour with a fluffy stable white head with nice lace. Slightly dusty and moderately sweet bready aroma with hay, floral hops in the background and a touch of honey. Balanced sweetbitter flavour, medium body, well carbonated slightly crispy mouthfeel. Malty and grainy start with balanced hops; dry and gentle bitter lasting finish with distinctive but not intrusive hoppiness. Very good and subtle Helles, fits perfectly to accompany (not only) a Bavarian meal. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2006 25 oz. bottle into glass. Thick head, but most impressesd with the taste and long, strong finish. winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Poured a pale golden with a light fluffy white head. This bear is all about malt. A light sweetness with a full malt body. Not much hops going on here, but not needed. This beer is not cloyingly sweet, it has a nice refreshing quality to it. When held up to light, I can see light specks in the beer as if wheat was used. MIght explain the crisp nature with such small amounts of hops. pivnizub (10563) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2006
Bottle (donated by joss): Pale golden, huge fluffy white head, rather quickly diminishing; sweetish-grainy nose; sweet and distinctive bitter flavour; shorter sweet and well hopped finish. Pleasant, but not a "century-brew" !
