Rumbero (46) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2017
aroma: light malt sweetness combined with herbal noble hop spiciness. appearance: this is pale golden lager with half inch white head with good retention and filtered clear. taste: light grainy malt flavors balanced by soft, retrained bitterness. palate: medium body with creamy texture, crisp carbonation and subtle astringency. it finishes short and dry with a late burst of bitterness. - these are all traits that you’d expect of a well executed Helles.

Mishnok (164) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
From draft, huge 1 litre stein at Hofbrauhaus. Golden in colour with huge foamy white head. Bready malt flavour, but easy to drink. Best drunk in the atmosphere of the famous beer hall itself if you get the chance! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PlutonowyMan (593) - 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 (880) - 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.
