Blind tasted with 4 other helles/dortmunder lagers. Lagers were: 1. Sly Fox Helles Golden Lager 2. Lakefront My Turn #023 Dylan 3. Benediktiner Original / Hell 4. Schloßbrauerei Fattigau Schloß-Export 5. Key Helles. Both raters rated the beers 21534.

500ml can. Clear golden pour. Aroma is barnyard hay/mulch. Falvor is husky griany, sweet, herbs. Meh.

Post tasting thoughts:
This was very haylike, a bit too much.

0.5 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Visual appearance is pale and clear, head is minimal. Taste has malts in a big way - even dark chocolate. Herbal hops finish your tasting experience. Maltier than most of examples of this style I have sampled.

500ml bottle. Surprisingly clear dark orange-brown with two finger slightly beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, banana, wheat bread, light yeastiness and a light spicy touch. Taste is similar with the extra maltiness providing a nice sweetness and rounding off an otherwise rougher beer. Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation and gentle sweet wheat aftertaste.

Several times at a ski slope. Very banana-ish weizen, some bready underpinning, quite sweet, though refreshing, some phenols - mostly in the flavour. Hazy golden body with nice head. Medium body, medium-high carbonation, semi-sweet finish. OK.

Very floral wheat beer. Bright and beautiful golden colour but not that tasty and a little on the carbonated/thin consistency side of thing. A decent summer tipple. But there are better examples of this style with a simler availability

Barwa ciemnobrązowa z czerwonymi przebłyskami. Obfita piana, dzięki której piwo bardzo ładnie się prezentuje. Złożony aromat, melanoidyny, ciemne owoce, skórka od chleba, karmel, melasa, nuta kawowa. W smaku dosyć słodko, dużo chlebowości, obecne także ciemne owoce, karmel, cukier kandyzowany. Piwo jest treściwe. Przypomina trochę quadrupla bez fenolowości. Generalnie całkiem fajne piwo, bogaty smak i aromat

Benediktiner Original / Hell
Imbottigliata il 15 marzo 2017, aperta il 14 maggio 2017. Dorata limpida leggere scarica, schiuma bianca fine ma non troppo persistente. Aroma che appena versata risulta erbaceo fresco, successivamente si smorza lasciando spazio anche a malto d'orzo e leggero caucciù. Al palato attacco maltato che lascia spazio ad un finale moderatamente dolce arricchito da erbaceo con note pepate e di caucciù, moderato diacetile. Retrolfatto prevalentemente erbaceo con note di caucciù. Ben carbonata, corpo leggero o poco più, molto beverina.

Sampled from 1.0 l bottle, best before June 2017. Hazy, orangeish amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish, moderately yeasty-spicy and slightly fruity aroma of overripe banana, cloves, honey, some pear and a touch of cinnamon. Moderately sweet, quite yeasty-spicy, a bit grainy and minimally fruity taste of overripe banana, nuts, honey, clove, straw, some pear and hints of cinnamon, followed by a short, slightly bitter, quite yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice, but not over-whelming.
