500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a deep clear gold with a huge white lasting head. Aroma is malt, honey, citrus and spicies. Taste is a creamy light honey and distant citrus mix. Palate is as smooth a s a babys butt. A very simple but excellent beer. I could drink these all day.

Brown Flip-Top half-litre bottle, best before 06 Jun 2009, drank 28 Jan 2009. Poured into a ’Berliner Kindl’ half-litre glass.
I poured it vigorously and nearly lost some, the head produced coming over the rim of my glass.
The beer is clear, very pale gold or straw coloured depending on your eyesight. A large foaming white head sat on top, as the beer settled the head fell away to a wisp and collar.
Most Helles/Lagers/Pilsners struggle to give off a true aroma to me. This tried, some hops and yeast hints just about sniff-able. Farmyard smells appeared as the beer warmed (is that good or bad?).
Clean and refreshing, no great flavours but a good honest feel about it. Some Helles are wishy-washy, this has a body and presence that stands out from the crowd.
Can’t put my finger on it, or my tastebuds, but this is a very good Helles Vollbier.

Swing-top bottle. Sweet hay malt aroma. Golden yellow color with nice big fluffy head. Slightly sweet barley malt flavor but has a nice barnyard aftertaste that I really like. Light but a tasty beer. stevoj (5574) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Smooth and creamy, there’s a lot to like about this beer. Creamy head leaves lots of sticky lacing, almost clear golden body with sweet malt aroma. Taste is bread, hay, barley, honey. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

A: Golden, clear, lots of bubbles, medium sized head which hung around for a bit. S: Grassy, malty and also had notes of sugar beat. T: Apples, sweet malts with a slight grainy finish. M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. O: Refreshing Helles, not really a Zwickel, could have been a bit crisper. charlotte (5425) - rødovre, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2014
