Mit einem Stammwürzegehalt von 12,2% und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% ist unser Kloster Machern Hell eine mit untergäriger Hefe vergoren typisch Bayrische Bierspezialität. Der feinwürzige, milde Geschmack rührt vor allem daher, dass das Helle schwächer gehopft und dadurch weniger bitter ist als ein Pils. So entsteht die leicht vollmundige Süffigkeit, aber auch die besondere Bekömmlichkeit unseres Hellen.
Starting from an original extract of 12.2% our light ale is brewed with bottom fermenting yeasts to yield a typical bavarian beer spciality containing 5.2% alcohol by volume. Less hops are used than in a pilsner beer, which gives it a mild taste. Our light ale is a delicious, full-bodied beer which is especially palatable.

Pretty good, but the flavor and palate is almost there, just needs a little tweak. It is a nice amber-brown color, no lacing small white head. It tastes good until the swallow and then a slightly unnatural flavor unfolds on the palate. Overall, would be a much better beer, if they adjust the late flavor here and use less of a raw wheat burlap flavor recipe it would be great.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Bottle. Light diacetyl aroma, fruity yeast. Cloudy yellow, champagne bubbles, offwhite foam. Light fruity soap, a lot of butterscotch, good hop profile. Chewy mellow mouthfeel, sparkly on the tongue. Shame about the fault, I sense a good beer underneath, must try again.

50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Cloudy straw with ample fizzy white head and a good amount of sediment. Aroma is sweet malt and flowery hops. Flavor is citrus, honey, caramel. Full body, high carbonation. Short, modestly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Nice brew.

shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Tap. Creamy barley malt and light hay hops aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet floral/honey orange and barley malt flavor. Nice body. Very nice Helles.

cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2010
bottle - hazy orange yellow beer with a white head. Fine yeast aroma, not a lot of hops, smokey. Flavour has a lot of yeast, hay and corn. Low bitterness. Medium carbonation. Nice beer!

In the aroma and taste there is a slight grape and light breadiness. Very clean and fresh tasting. Golden with a fading white head. Very refreshing and surprisingly good for a lager. Notes: Bottle from a Schnapps store in Bernkastle-Kues

A nice light colored beer. Taste is smooth and very refreshing. Is a great Greman beer and freash and well done. Great beer of true German lines. I noticed that they claim Bavarian Purty laws and not German. Interesting since this is so far from Bavaria.

500 ML Fliptop bottle in Germany. Pour cloudy with one of the best lacying heads I have seen in a Helles. Aroma is well balanced and taste is a fine mix of hopps, malt and sweetness. As a Helles goes this natural unfiltered Helles is one of the best I have ever had. A must for Helles fans!!!1

Draught at the brewpub
Deep blond color; creamy head. It has a nice malt aroma, some cereals. Smooth mouthfeel, with some cereals and malt aroma, light residual sweetness; this one as well lacking of hop and bitterness, otherwise it would be a good Helles.

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Light malty and sweet, moderate hoppy. Large white foamy-frothy head, golden clear body. Moderate sweet, rather short duration. Creamy body and silky aftertaste, rather light body. Very nice one.
