Brilliantly gold in color with a thick white foam. Crisp, sweet, and clean with a refreshing touch of hops in the finish. Sweet maltiness dominates this bready, satisfying lager. A fantastic Helles. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2006

On tap. Golden colour with nice large head. Little aroma of malt and some noteable of hops. Very sweet malty flavour nice but nothing speciel.

After a number of (as yet unrated) beers from central and eastern Eurpoe it wastime to go to the home of the solid European lager. The golden pour and clean head are a given perhaps, but I do like the bready maltiness that is one of the hallmarks of the style. Very crisp and clean with a good balance of sweet malt and German hops. Very much a must have again beer from a fine brewery.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Actually this is completely dominated by sweet malt - very, very sweet malt - with only a discreet hint of bitterness in the finish. Very classical Helles. 211205 highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2005
This is fast becoming my favourite German brewer. Like Weihenstephan, they seem incapable of making a mediocre beer. On an evening when the mercury brushed 40C, this hit the spot. All the Weltenburger beers I’ve sampled to date have looked great and this is no exception. It’s a lucid pale gold with a fine, tall lasting head. And it has one of those aromas that says ’quality’. It’s not "big" but there are no false notes. It’s soft and malty with fresh bread, lychee, canned pineapple and faint pine. Malt is again to the fore in the mouth. Very bready, soft and rounded, with some piney notes in a gentle finish. Lovely stuff. (500ml bottle, IBS Perth, bb 27/3/05) Tmoney99 (15135) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle in Sarasota, FL. Pours a straw color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting. Average bready malt aroma. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Moderate sweet , light bitter flavor with an average finish. OlJuntan64 (1264) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2005
Medium pale gold crystal clear with large shortish lasting fine bubbled bright white head and reasonable lace. Surprisingly sweet grainy malty and bubblegum aroma on opening of bottle. The initial degree of maltiness does not quite agree with the colour. As it warms the malt becomes less bright and mroe biscuity with a hint of woody hops and a touch of smoked? something grows. Palate is medium, clean, tongue tip tingling carbonation fading to slightly cloying. Flavours are quite complex. Initially a slightly stale bitter hops and biscuit malt together with hints of pine needles, grapefruit rind and there’s that smoked? again. Finish is soft smooth aged woody bitter.
