Wheaty aroma with bitter tinge. Strong German bite can be tempered with a half slice of orange or lemon.

Piepenhenrich (587) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Probably the epitome of the Munich Hell, made famous by its landmark brewing house. But, hey, it is indeed one great brew, well-balanced range of flavors, however mild and easy to drink for an enjoyable drinking on a summer day (or any other occasion).

Великолепный Хеллес. Насыщенный солодовый вкус. Один из лучших в мире (ИМХО)

Nice foamy head that lasts the beer itself is heavy on the sweet malts as expected for a munich beer. No clear character in the hops perhaps some dryness that hits the back of the mouth. A light metalic taste in the finish from this particular bottle which is unfortunate. Its a decent lager though largely inoffensive and lacking any playfulness and energy.

nephirem (580) - CROATIA - JUL 14, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour with two finger frothy white head. Medium lasting, pretty good lacing. Pleasant nose, grains and hops, slightly tart. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly soft even. Average texture. Pleasantly bittersweet taste with slight tart notes. Aroma is medium malty, grainy, touch of grassy hops. Slight corn. Herbal. Slight acidity towards the finish. Finishes slightly bitter and somewhat peppery. Overall, decent brew. Nothing extraordinary but pretty good thirst quencher. Good.
