Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of hops with subtle malty and yeasty touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour with a distinct cardboard note and a touch of yeast. I do not quite enjoy cardboard orgies but I accept the fact that this is normal for a Dortmunder/Helles. So, all in all, acceptable. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is hops and deep malt with grassy notes. The flavor is grassy and malty with some toasted notes. Great malty and very tasty.

Ein klassisches und einfaches Helles, das mit seiner Süffigkeit durchaus überzeugen weiß. Mild im Malzaroma und einfach zu trinken. Keine Neuerfinden, aber einfach gut, McTapps (6856) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2013
Deep golden colour with medium body and low head. Nose of sweetish malt. Taste of mild hops, mild orange peel, grass, hay, malt and ripe grains. Easy to drink, very refreshing and goes well with a hot and spicy meal. kevnic2008 (11980) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2012

On tap at hutt’n in Nuremberg, a clear improvement on the bottled version. A very characterful landbier with a vibrant and grassy aroma, biscuity malt combining with passionfruit and kiwi in a way suggesting upside-down cake but with zesty hops preventing it from getting cloying. Very high on the drinkability scale Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2012
In bottle at Ventoux. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of bready yeast, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours, mild bitterness and lingering bread and grass. Mild carbonation and prickle with a foamy mouth-feel. Alcohol is fairly prominent. BlackHaddock (7235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
On 14th Jan 2012 I decided to have a lager/pilsner/helles/light beer evening: a 500ml screw-top bottle of this beer was the third to be opened. The brewery obviously wanted to cover all the bases with this beer: not many Landbier Export Helles all in one bottle that I know of.
Poured into three Pilsner glasses (tulip, stemmed): almost clear body of a dull golden yellow colour, a white crown sat on each glass, looked like any other Helles I’ve had, but duller.
Very little in the nose, grass, mini-floral hop type smells are all I got.
The taste wasn’t overly impressive either: mildly hoppy with a malt content stopping the beer being too dry or bitter from the hops. Mellow rather than crisp, soft rather than tart: it didn’t do enough for me and I thought the whole beer was dull. The alcohol was well hidden but the mouthfeel was on the thin side and overall it just seemed like plenty of other ‘run of the mill’ German brews.
