glennmastrange (2869) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Tap. Light to moderate grain for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light meadow and leaves for the yeast. Head is large, frothy, white, with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear gold. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a soft to lively carbonation. Typical yet very nice drinking Helles from a top notch brauerei aleigator (945) - GERMANY - MAR 4, 2017
Pours a crystal clear golden color wirh a fluffy white head, soon receeding to a thin layer of lacing.
Smells of an intriguing melange of wheat, white bread dough, dried foliage and a hint of caramel.
Has an effervescent carbonation among a very light, borderline thin body.
Tastes of straw, cakey malts the slightest impact of noble hops and a bubbly metallic quality. Fades onwards from midpalate, creating a one dimensional watery maltiness.
Pretty boring an almost too light to pair with food, since only the malt sweetness stands out. kto (1310) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2017

(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Fresh grainy malty and slightly doughy aroma with a whiff of herbal hoppy spice. Balanced sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a well-carbonated mf. Crisp pale malty base with grainy notes and herbal hops in the background, drying the beer a little bit towards the finish. Clean Lager. 06.IX.15 Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle at Pivoteka, thanks Franski! Poured a golden body slightly tinged with yellow. Small white head. Full malty aroma, vaguely lemony, a touch of wet cardboard that somehow doesn’t ruin it completely. Light taste, honey, lemon, dryish, slightly minty, somewhat soapy. In my opinion, quite good for the style! oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is floral, herbal, grainy and mildly bready. Flavour is grainy, grassy, herbal, some parfume and mild rubbery notes as well. Nice aroma, but the flavour isn’t my thing, when it comes to Helles.
