12oz purchased at the Coop tonight poured into my small weizen glass. Very short lasting 1 finger head left behind spotty lace.. atop a light golden brew.. very clear. Grainy pale malts.. very clean.. this is one of the good times where less is more... I love a good helles... and this is a good one for sure. Malty .. very restrained bitterness and just the slightest breath of spicy/grassy hop flavor... smooth lite/medium body with just enough carbonation... as it warms, it sweetens.. but not in a bad way.. the malts come to the front as they should. This is not a Dortmunder .. and nobody should think otherwise.

Van ’t vat. Helder blond bier met wit schuim. Geur: licht hoppige neus, wat 4VG. Smaak: zeer moutig en precies wat yoghurt en lactose. Zeer romig. Goede koolzuurprikkel.

Poured from 500mL can (labelled P: 05/19/2016; E: 05/19/2017 so this one is slightly expired... should’ve checked when i bought it). Clear pale yellow with dissipating white head. Mild sweet malt, very subtle grassy hops. Not bad for a lager-type beer.

Pershing (562) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Clear yellow with medium carbonation and malt in the aroma. Light body with some noble hop bitterness to match style. Clean refreshing finish. Above average central European lager. Nice to drink a beer from a brewery that doesn’t have to recreate a new beer style every six weeks to stay in business.

WillemsUrenkel (1876) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2017
And another Helles ... 0,5 l bottle. Claer golden witha one finger white head in the glass. Smells low grainy. Taste is mid grainy low but present bitterness. Nothing really wrong but boring to be honest.

Turtles (2660) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, lasting frothy white head, good lacing. Bread aroma with sweet malts and grains, hints of citrus. Smooth and clean feel, medium carbonation. Bread dough taste, buns, grains and grass. Mild bitter finish.

bonev (780) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Piwo klarowne w kolorze zlotym nalewa sie z dosc obfita biala drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora jednak bardzo szybko znika bez wiekszych sladow. W aromacie ziola i gotowane warzywa i pieczywo tostowe. W smaku polslodkie z wysokim wysyceniem i srednioniska goryczka. Smakuje platkami owsianymi i nic poza tym. Zwykle jasne piwo bez wiekszych wrazen.

Tezminator (239) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
Aroma: faint herbs and corn. The taste is similar with some mild citrus and something honey-like. However, nice balance of hops and malt. Mild and interesting yeasty flavour. Very subtle and nice. I am not familiar with the style, but as a random beer from the (Swedish) bottle shop, this is one of the better ones that ticks quite a few boxes.

Goldgelb im Glas mit sehr kurzlebiger Blume. Feinmalziger Antrunk, mild würziger Körper, leichte Hopfennoten im Abgang.
