   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
MoritzF (9612) - Ottobrunn, - JUL 24, 2007
(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.

FatPhil (15151) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut and ultimately his secret santa SinH4!
Really starchy aroma, yeah, thats 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. Imno 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 (3248) - 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.

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
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 (1699) - 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 (55) - 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 (2182) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 27, 2016
From barrel @Ma che siete venuti a f (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!

Ritzn (985) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2016
Clear golden with fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, noble hops, toast. Taste is slightly spicy sourness, buttery smoothness, hop tartness. Finish is medium and more or less the same. Juicy mouthfeel, not bad.

SinH4 (4052) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 Tap. Clear golden color with fluffy white head. Aroma is grainy, some citrusy hops, juicy malts. Taste is grainy, again these tasty juicy malts, so smooth. Oily mouthfeel, with quite an assertive bitterness in the finish that fits. Very refreshing, some of the best Lagers there is - but their Landbier is better, indeed.
