cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Light golden with a frothy head that subsides into a decent half-inch of sustined head over a bubbly clear beer. A basic german lager is not my favorite style, but for what it is, this is pretty well done. Aromas of sweetish malt, barely noticeable hops and a familiar lager yeasty character. The flavor is smooth, clean and crisp, but with a slightly bitter-hop aftertaste. Not a stunning beer, but does what it does pretty well. Recommended if you want a light, clean unchallenging beer.

PlutonowyMan (562) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Barwa złota, klarowna, piwo przykrywa wysoka, biała piana dość trwała. Topniejąc pozostawia mnóstwo zdobien, niestety niezbyt ładnie pęka. W aromacie wiodąca jest słodowość i delikatne nuty zbliżone do kiszonej kapusty. Smak: podobnie jak wyżej, słodowość, słodko i nuty trawiaste, kiszonka wycofana. Goryczka bardzo minimalna. Nasycenie wysokie, dodaje rześkości. Oczekiwałem czegoś więcej, ale i tak nie jest źle.

Color dorado con una espuma media. El olor augura cosas buenas. Presenta un aspecto magnífico con burbuja fina. Sabor dulce a caramelo. Una cerveza equilibrada a la altura de lo que me esperaba de una Heller. Bebible y refrescante.

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a bright golden color with a froth, medium sized head. Smells of sugar infused cereals, wheat and fresh cut grass with a herbal whiff atop. Drinks incredibly easy, refreshing and light bodied with an effervescent, sweet finish. Tastes of an aqueous softness with a slowly uprising malt breadiness, resulting in a pleasant toffee sweetness, together with some wheat and grass. Finishes with just the right amount of grassy crispness, a bubbly, lively carbonation and toffee. Nice, well composed beer, light and refreshing with the right amount of depth.

gegwilson (3404) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle in the Twisted Lip, Middlesbrough. Pours blond with a fading head of white froth. Not much aroma. The taste is hay and grain with a touch of citrus and light spice. OK.

Bulk_Carrier (4113) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Green bottle. Poured into a flared pilsner glass, the appearance was a burnt yellow laziness. A one finger white foamy head leveled out at a nice pace. Mild stringy lace ran here and there. The aroma started off with some sweet bready to biscuity maltiness leaning into some mild grassy hops. The flavor is the same with some skunkiness starting to show through. Light semi-sweet bready aftertaste leaning into the finish, but that’s starting to show some skunkiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice decent clean sessionable smooth feel to it. Carbonation rides light. Overall, decent Hellas lager, good thing I drank it now. In less than a week, probably would be totally skunked. I lucked out. But still hate green bottles.

DavidAust (213) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2016
500ml bottle. White low (half finger) foam which reduces quickly but keeps a bit more than a ring from that point on.Golden straw colour . Malty bread aroma and a bit grassy. Flavour the same. Minimal bitterness, slightly sweet and a little cloying on the palate.

Skarecrow (349) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 19, 2016
500ml bottle BB 3/5/17 Light straw color with good head. Slight grainy aroma. Medium bitterness with slight malt body and crisp finish. I was quite impressed with this one - a novelty to taste a decent German beer that wasn’t oxidized from the trip down-under and plenty of life left in it re BB. Could quite easily sit on this one at Oktoberfest.
