pure gold body with white and persistent foam.
Malty and honey flavoiurs.
Watery on mouth; sweetness of malt well-balanced with the right bitterness. TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Radiant yellow. Tight white collar of foam. Pleasant aroma of toasted hay, crackers, honeysuckle, lemon, and paper. Underlying DMS (cauliflower), sulfur, and metal shavings. Soft carbonic prickles. Softly malty, initially, with fluffy white bread interwoven with lusher haylike notes. Scratchy minerals are proceeded by a nuanced floral-herbal characteristic which is slightly marred by a tinge of concrete. Minor, but unobtrusive, DMS comes as quickly as it goes, and a delicate trail of flower petals is left in its wake. Quite lean all around, with some stiff toast firming things up as well. Dry and balanced finish of flowery Hallertau capped with lightly toasty pils malt and white bread. A rather straightforward Helles lager, but at least it’s mostly clean. No huskiness or fusels and the DMS is hardly noticeable. More hop expressiveness would elevate this considerably. A fairly decent quaffer, but not very memorable. tgrtnr (323) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 500 ml bottle. Pours clear golden, with big but quick disappearing head. Grainy, a bit citrus, some floral notes. Medium bitterness, with a light grainy sweetness. Light bodied, soft carbonated. Could have been a bit crisper. Okay Export. allmyvinyl (11019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2017
Bottle thanks to Johannes. Pours crystal clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Aromas of grassy hops and light corn and malt. Taste is just like Augustiner Helles used to be, before they overstretched themselves. Banging helles. Simple, drinkable. The sun was shining and I was very happy.

0,5 l bottle. Yellow color with medium white head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of bread. Medium body with low carbonation. Taste of sweet malt and little of bread or bisquit. PorterPounder (8284) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Apalachee - 11.2 oz bottle. Good solid Helles, light golden appearance, light snow white head - light lacing. Sweet, candy like aroma, very pleasant. Flavor has elements of mown grass, bread and sour apples. Goes down smoooth. Refreshing. Brewhemia (321) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2017
Very pale yellow with white head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of bread and light notes of boiled cabbage in the aroma. Taste is medium sweet. Flavors of white bread and cookie dough. High carbonation. To be honest I have yet to be able to truly destinguish between a dortmunder/helles and a pilsner. So this tastes like a pilsner to me. But not necessarily a bad one. elosop (463) - SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Ljusgul med obefintlig skumkrona. Doftar lite bröd och halm. Smaken förvånansvärt fyllig, nästan honungsöt och lite maltig. Eftersmaken maltsöt och hyggligt lång. Fint kolsyrad. olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty bready smell with some light caramel. Similar taste. Clean. This is very nice, I like the malt base in this.
