htnicholas (50) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
From a 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with an ample thick white head. Moderate carbonation. Smells of sweet carmel, bread, and hay. Taste is dominated by sweet carmel and bread-like malt flavors with very slight hoppiness to it. Mostly sweet finish. A little less hop character than I would expect. A decent session beer but a little sweeter than I would like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (17589) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
On tap at Weihenstephen Freising. Clear perfectly clear gold lasting white head. Again cereal aroma like the pils fuller in the mouth some alcohol sweetness. Some lemon on finish. Good but not as good as the pils unfiltered.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma was skunky corn. The taste was the same. There was a bitterness to it. I dont get the fascination with this one.

Ritzn (758) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2016
Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is noble hops, some apple maybe, wheat and slight corn. Taste is slightly sulfuric hop bitterness with some awkward sour corn above it. Same in the finish. Not smooth due to a too aggressive carbonation. Also not totally easy to drink. Hm...

derA (44) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2016
weird nose of sulphur and vulcanized rubber, some corn but maybe something went wrong with this bottle? body is light and very drinkable, finishes off-dry with a lot of grainy corn taste. Mouthfeel is the most appealing aspect of this one with a filling, milky property.

Forgettable mostly. Light, fine bitterness coming through and sort of refreshing. Would not purchase again.

hauxe (520) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2016
Pours gold from the bottle. The white head is white and frothy. Aroma is floral and honey sweet, with light soapy undertones. Taste up front sweet with a light herbal bitterness near the finish. Body trends medium. A pleasant and refreshing Helles.
