Világos aranyszínű ser, ami kristálytisztán csillog belül. Habja hófehér, krémes, elég nagy méretű és közepesen kitartó. Illata kissé visszafogott, friss kenyérszerű, malátás, zöld növényes és élesztős, picit szúrós. Íze erősen malátás, édeskés, amihez társul egy adag savanykás élesztő és a végén egy jó adag gyógyfüves, komlós, kesernyésség. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes és enyhén száraz. Könnyen iható, kellemes szomjoltó ez a világos sör, ami elég jól kiegyensúlyozott, de nem túl érdekes.

Pale straw coloured pour with a tight white head. The aroma is great. Soft crackery pilsner malt character. Some firm minerally component as well that lends a real firmness to the hop bitterness. A little bit of crispness that gives the beer a great clean hop bitterness. Moderate floral hop aroma. A pretty nice helles really. There was a little bit of metallic character that I could have done without but it fades pretty quickly. Well made. drpimento (3729) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Nothing special to look at, but a decent pale lager nonetheless. Poured with a smallish white head that soon settled down to just a bit and no lace. Color is a clear, yellow gold with perfect bubble trails up the center. Aroma reminds me of German pilsner, malt, grass, grain, hop. Flavor’s not as hoppy. Clean, balanced, with tang to balance the sweetness of the malt and just a bit of hop bitterness to round things out. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and short to medium long. Session beer. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottled. Best by 5/12. For them expecting another 2/3 of a year of life out of this, it’s sure showing some aged character. Honey, raisin, and a harsh metallic finish, tarnich what is otherwise a clean and balanced helles. Nothing too compelling to begin with, but Now I’m pissed that I never had this when I was in Munich. I drank way, way too much Augustiner. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2011
a perfectly good middle of the road malty lager from the land of malty lagers.

330mL bottle. Bright golden color, pours clear with a heavy white head. Aroma of hay and grassy hops, nice grain and cereal malt. The smell alone makes me want to go to München. Flavor is of cereal malt, well balanced with the slightest hop. So light and refreshing, yet so full of flavor.
You gotta give it to the Germans for perfecting the Helles!

From the 330 ml. bottle stamped 06/11-L15601Y. It pours golden-yellow but leaning more toward yellow with a decent head that lingers. Abundant German malts on the nose with a sweet nip. The body is smooth and medium. The taste is also very much like a traditionally malty German beer with light breadcrumbs. Refreshing for sure. JaKeAFC (1264) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2011
0.5L swing top bottle named Munich Gold. Intense clear gold colour and compact creamy white head. Quiet nose, has some malts. Very grainy, spicy malts and some vegetables. Taste very sweet for the style, hoppiness is very light and i didn’t notice it immediately, comes as it warms up . Smooth carbonation and smooth feel overall, easy to drink. OK German helles, similar to a Marzen, but was expecting something more in aroma...
