Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has grass, bit grain. Clear, golden coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is light sweet, has grain and grassy tones. Okayish but boring. JefVerstraete (3348) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Clear golden colour, white foam. Very weak and watery, no off flavours but too watery. m7hildeb (189) - - JUN 8, 2016

Clear straw colour with a medium white head, grainy and grassy nose with faint hints of banana, taste is aromatic-malty and surprisingly quite citric and fruity, good carbonation and a short finish with not much bitterness. blackisle (2577) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2016

Bottled, from Biershop Bayern. Clear pale golden, mid sized head. Fruity grassy nose. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with grass and some sugar. Not the most harmonious example of the style.

500ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Pale golden honey colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Good sticky lacing with slow-moving small carbonation; Quite pungent aroma of malt, with strong floral, light sugar, bread, yeast, lemon and fairly strong grass; Close to medium sweet taste of light malt, with fairly strong barley grains, moderate molasses, floral, soggy bread, strong lemon, moderate bitter hops and quite sharp grass; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is pretty typical Helles - light maltyness, light but fair body, strong barley grain and very notable floral. Sweetness is quite subdued compared to some other Helles. Breadyness is not that great but a good hoppy finish to round up. Okay… Hoppiness is lemon, quite strong floral and fair sharp grass in nose and taste. Close to moderate bitterness for an abrupt, low-astringent finish; Fairly dry after taste. Quite easy and floral hoppy to mouth.
Comments: By all means this is quite an easy Helles with a slightly Macro Pale-like lager nose and somewhat grainier than most Helles, but it does have some strong floral and les sweetness to boost, so it’s still a fair, blue collar Helles to enjoy for football matches. Okay enough.
