COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Einzigartig dank Spelzentrennung und uraltem Schrotmaischverfahren. Die Spelze (das ist die Schale des Malzes, in der bittere Gerbstoffe sitzen) wird beim Schroten (so nennt der Riegele Brauer das Mahlen des Malzes) vom Korn getrennt und nicht mit eingemaischt (mit Wasser vermischt) - deshalb so mild.

The best beer I have tasted, and I’ve sampled many over the years. The taste and particularly the aroma, are simply sublime.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Springhurst); split four ways. Aroma: Semi-dry cereal with an abiding grassiness that reminds me of German Pilsners; very clean and inviting. Appearance: Yellow pour with light streams of carbonation supporting a patchy white head. Flavor: Assertively grassy up front; malts more subtle and leave a whisper of sweetness, leading to a dry, grassy finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: It’s a superbly done Helles; probably the best German example I’ve found stateside, especially from a bottle.

allmyvinyl (10613) - 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.

VsXsV (4438) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of earth, floral hops, bread, fresh hops, grain and toast. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of floral hops, light sweet bread malt and earth. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very drinkable. This is great. Complex enough. Very drinkable.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 27, 2002
quite curious. strong rockmelon aroma. surprisingly prickly then a little sweet and with a satisfying meaty dry finish. one of the better and more interesting helles around

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Draught, The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Pale lacy flute wafting with fresh herbal hop, honey, hay and chick pea. Lemony, grassy hop melding into honey and crackerbread malt. Immaculate.
