(draught at the brewpub) Clear, golden colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Light-sweet, straw malty nose with herbal hops and a touch of barnyard. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour; malty, slightly strawy taste with herbal hops from the beginning; light to medium bodied with a crispy carbonation and a fresh mouthfeel; dry and moderately bitter finish with noticeable hops character. Refreshing and pleasant Helles with rural character.

On tap @ St�hrenkeller, Bamberg. Pours clear slightly hazy yellow, with a big creamy head. Aroma is herbal hops, with citrus and grassy notes, as well as malts with cereals and toffee. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is herbal hops, with citrus, grass and earthy notes, as well as malts with cereals, toffee and honey. Some seriously quaffability!
Tap at their depressing yet somehow loveable brewpub on eastersunday - full of great characters. eight men, one on every table, from time to time shouting something at each other and talking about death. price was 1,80€, tip not accepted. I adore their landbier, the vollbier is a nice but average franconian helles, to be honest. fresh and crisp. mildly bitter. FatPhil (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut and ultimately his secret santa SinH4!martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
Really starchy aroma, yeah, that’s a dortmunder/helles. Is it macro. Woh, salt and vinegar crisps - clear sodium diacetate. Taste is milky porridge oats. Finish is starchy, pretty buttery too. I’mno fan of this family of lagers, and this is not a particularly good example in this state. This was right at its BB, and I can believe that a fresh one would be way better. This is a bit macroey, to be honest.
Bottle, bb 30.12.2016 (thanks santa SinH4). Pours golden. Aroma is grainy, butterscotch, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grains, malt, some butterscotch. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: okish, but again would like fresher sample. suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Clear yellow beer, small white head. Nose is malty, sweetness, starch. Watery, starch, water, some industrial notes. Watery and salty finish, aftertaste is almost like salted crisps.

500ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear pale golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Sourish, grainy, some metallic hops, some caramel in aroma. Grainy, caramel, grassy hops, sweet in taste. Grainy and mildly spicy hops in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Tastes better than smells. Solid brew. anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4 (and a little help by derA), many thanks! Pours clear golden with a big but shortlived head. Aroma is malt-dominated, but with a clear fleshy fruitness, little hay. Body is light to medium, with a lively carbonation to make it refreshing and pleasant. Gentle in flavours, but not neglecting them, rather bringing out the beauty of what a lager can be. Palate continues the light malt flavours, gushing down with some water without getting thin. Extremely pleasant throughout. Very smooth and round experience. Superb! derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2016
surprising nose of pear, some wet malt, a little bit of cotton maybe, mouthfeel is more entertaining than most Dortmunder Helles, a lot of tiny bubbles make for an uplifting malt character, finish is almost refreshing but also with pronounced sweetness. An excellent Helles! Mortlach (2490) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 27, 2016
From barrel @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours golden with a medium white head. Aroma of milk bread, corn, malt, honey, grass. Flavour is medium sweet with a good bitterness, round and tasty. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very good beer! jonas (7985) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2016
