A Helles by style, Jackson describes it as having "a very full gold colour, with a maltiness that is almost chewy and oily, with a faint hint of smoky dryness.

Gangstergafje (945) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
The beer looks nice, like a good German lager beer should look like. The color of the beer is golden yellow. The beer is quite clear, accept for a little tiny haze. On top of the beer a nice rough layer of white foam is formed. Foam retention is bad. It collapses quickly, leaving nothing at all. The smell of the beer is nice. It isnt very special, just a simple German lager. There is quite a strong malty base. It has some sweeter touches to. On top of that there is a nice hoppy bitterness and slightly sour twist. A nice little fruitiness. The taste is pretty much the same. Simple, but not bad. Nice maltiness, hoppy bitternes and acidity and a nice alcohol flavour. There is also a sulfery Dortmund thing going on. Nice beer, good for thirst. The palate is simple. Medium body, low carbonation. The finish has some nice hops and bitterness. Good, but simple beer.

anstei (1971) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle. I can see the faint hint of smoky dryness, but also just a tad of butter. Besides that indeed rather malty and oily. Light sweetness, matching well. Lively carbonation, light body, yet not water at all. Nice.

rlgk (18841) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2016
Draught at the bierstube in Bamberg. First beer during Bamberg-trip 2016. Clear deep golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, cereal, biscuits, some grassy hops. Bready flavor, caramel, cereal almost papery notes, some grassy hops. A bit too heavy on the bread.

Radek Kliber (7276) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Where and how: Bottle 500ml in Bamberg
Aroma: Hallertau hops up front, vibe of fresh meadow with soft golden malts as base. Clean job. 7+
Appearance :
Top: medium sized, white, long lasting. Left rings on glass.
Base: clear gold.
Palate : medium thinner body. Frisky carbonation, beyond that with milder qualities.
Taste: Reminded me more of good Polish Jasne Pelne beers. Simple, refreshing and clean. I like my Helles beers to be softer, more delicate.
other notes Not bad by any means but I am not sure why this one is in top 50 for style.

Borresteijn (6790) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of fat buttery malts, light vegetal notes, some (bison)grass, not unlike some Polish lagers. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, light buttery, light toast, light grassy bitter finish. Light bodied, slick. OK.
