Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 0.9oz bottle into a into a mug. The label has no freshness date or abv. Appearance: It has a bright, deep golden color with great clarity and nice active carbonation that helps support the head. Its head builds up tall, light and fluffy from an aggressive pour. This quickly settles to a thin covering that holds on well. Lacing is spotty and slick. Smell: The nose has a light pale maltiness with a touch of raw grain and a light bready sweetness. This is balanced by a nice crisp floral/spicy hop character. Taste/Palate: It starts with a good pale malt base that also brings some mild bready and caramel sweetness. This is backed up with firm floral/earthy/spicy character that balances the malt. The palate is medium bodied, crisp and well carbonated. Notes: This is a great all-around drinking beer. It’s nicely balanced and wonderfully drinkable.

bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden colour, white head, subtle hop aroma. Light- to medium-bodied, good malty flavours combined with delicate floral, grassy hops. What a fine and elegant beer.

Bottle looks good, also a nice cap. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty-dry, a bit metallically. Finish grasy-moldy, notes of butter cookies. Okay.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of bready/doughy pils malt, herbs and honey. Flavor is malty without being sweet, dough and yeast with some light hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean finish. Great, clean, easy drinking Helles.

Aroma has grainy malt, butter, some grassy hops and distant herbal notes. Flavour has malt, butter, some corn, grassy hops and hints of herbs. A solid helles.

#207 Gelungene Optik im Glas mit mittlerer Kohlensäure. Der Antrunk ist erfrischend trotz der immerhin 5,2% Alk. Überhaupt kommt es eher mild daher, aber das kann im nächsten Moment auch umschlagen. Ein Wechselspiel aus mildem Malz und feinherber Hopfigkeit. Mild, ohne zu süß zu sein. Wohldosierte Hopfenbeigabe. Ein außergewöhnlich gutes bayerisches Hell, dass auf Understatement macht. Mit jedem Schluck kommen weitere Geschmacksnuancen hervor! Schließe mich Suffkopp mit seinem Fazit an, denn es trifft genau zu: "leichtes und doch so komplexes Bier" :-)) Das Motiv des Etiketts, die Ettaler Klosterbrauerei, ist ja ok, aber die silbergraue Farbe ähnelt an ein dt. Billigbier aus Gotha. Das ist aber auch der einzige Kritikpunkt. Test vom 18.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,12,10,12 - 11,90
