It has at first a very nice hop aroma, fresh herbal hop, powerful, clean. It has a respectable body, with malt flavor, maybe too sweet; then the bitterness balances it, more in the end. Very good.
2007-06-14, draught at the brewpub, as Kräusen, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Hazy light blond color. Light aroma, with some malt and hop, same for the taste, the hopping better than the malt, but balanced and very enjoyable.
Das Scheffels Kräusen ist hellgelb und nur minimal trüb mit verhaltener Schaumbildung. Es riecht leicht hefig und säuerlich nach Apfel. Es beginnt erfrischend, wobei die leichte Fruchtnote schnell einer Hopfennote weicht, die zunehmends stärker wird. Als Freund hopfiger Biere finde ich dieses Kräusen ungewöhnlich und zwar ungewöhnlich gut!

Tap. Creamy barley malt flavor with light grass hops. Golden yellow color with small head. Creamy malt flavor with moderate grass hops. Nice beer - more like a German pils flavor to me. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
My Bottom Line : BeerandBlues2 (13316) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bready yeast paints a rustic flavorscape for this unfiltered Helles, as herbal hops and soft, doughy cereals merge in a pillowy show of balance.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A tuft of foam tops the cloudy blond.
-Cereal flavors are pleasant. Could there be wheat in here too?
-The finish is a continuation of the flavor profile, with mild herbal hop bitterness and equally delicate cereal sugars.
-Oh, if all North American brewpubs had a house blond of this character instead of the often mailed-in colours they brew…
-This is not a top-tier Helles, but it serves its purpose very well and is as drinkable as it is flavorful.
On tap at the brewpub.

Couple pints on tap at the brewpub. Frothy white head in a stone mug. Aroma is actually very hoppy, very leafy, citrusy, spicy woody hops, light munich malt aroma, nice and bready. Taste is quite bitter, almost IPA like, very hoppy. Palate is light bodied with smooth carbonation. Tasty. Smalle (222) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2014

Cloudy yellow/blond beer.
Very grainy, almost wort like. A bit of hay.
Taste: malty and some light hops. rozsoma (1023) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2014
Monoton, aber ok. Hozzá a tipikus bajor helles hozzáállást. Dicséretes. Hasonlít a Vetter Helles-éhez. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2015
