(Draught at restaurant "La Vita" in Mnchen)
Clear straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Sweet malty and of sirup scent. Sweet malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. I found it rather boring compared to most other beers I drank in Mnchen during my trip.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus and malt with very mild bread, the aroma feels dull even if the right elements are there. The flavor though feels more sharp, theres a good presence of malt with citrus and mild fresh bread, it feels round and refreshing. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbobnation. Not a great helles but its pleasant to drink in a hot summer day.

bierkoning (12683) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Fresh malty, slightly grassy aroma. Malty, hay-like,slightly chalky flavor with some citrus and vanilla. Quite complex and tasty helles.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours pale golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of grain, honey, and slight fruit. The flavor is sweet, biscuit, fruit, and grassy bitterness.

3fourths (9213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2007
500ml bottle. Filtered and clear medium dark yellow with a standard white medium-sized bubbled head. Dusty sweet nose of sweet corn and light dough and cracker. Flavor is similar, slick and sweet corn, some very light lemon zest and a wheat cracker flavor over the middle. Finishes slick and crisp. A decent beer, I dig helles more and more and this one wasnt so bad. I think if I had this a few years ago I would have panned it but Ive grown to really like a crisp and lightly sweet helles.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2007
500 ml bottle. Very pale straw colour, white lace. Thin pale malt aroma. Pretty fresh tasting. Very light grassy hop flavour over a soft pale malt backbone. Low bitterness. Not stellar, but its highly quaffable.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2007
Quite as basic as a helles can be. Had this one with pork and sauerkraut and cant really recall much of the beers character. Maybe says something. Good and basic one without anythink funky pushing thru.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle: Translucent yellow, large frothy white head, spotty lacing, soft carbonation.   Sweet grassy nose, slight hay.   Very grassy on the tongue, mild sweetness.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Soft grass oriented malts linger, along with the soft sweetness.   Tiz average, but a fairly clean example of the style.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2007
I was very enthusiastic about trying this golden lager when it first became available. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of flavor in the finish and the dullness of its hops in the balance. Not much to write home about, but it would definitely be quite sessionable in the heat of summer.
