I'm a big helles fan so can rate this in comparison to a fair few of the style. Here we go.

Poured from 500ml bottle into my Veltins mug.

A) On style, straw colour, pure white head which hangs around, lots of bubbles. Bottle features the classic blue and white chequer pattern of Bavaria.

S) This is where it stands out. Pulled straight from the fridge, crack it open and you are whacked with a huge bready malt odour.

M) On style, the big big malt flavour makes it less thirst quenching than some other Helles biers, but gives you something to chew on.

T) Follows the smell. Big hit of soft doughy malt. Like a quality German lager, you get the great taste up front, then it's gone with no after taste, forcing you into another gulp to keep you going.

O) At the opposite end of the spectrum to another fine Helles, Augustiner, this is full of fragrance and mature malty character. So good. No beer drinker in the world could drink this and not enjoy it.

I’ve had many German beers, Bavarian, Koelsch, Alt, Pilsner, Helles, Kristalweizen, there probably isn’t a type of German beer I haven’t sampled.

Uerige, Augustiner Edelstoff are two of my favourite beers, Tegernseer Helles is with or above these as a whole.

Smooth crisp Helles beer, great light flavour, no overwhelming feeling after a few. A chill beer to enjoyed very cold, and to have a copious supply of in the Keller!

Really good German beer, probably one of he best beer ever. Taste is pretty clean: bread and sweet cake mixture malt - only a touch of herb which is hard to detect. The smells sweet malty, fresh, crispy. Good for a big night with friends! I also tried on tap and is even better...

On-tap at Weisses Brauhaus and served in a 300 ml mug, on to the beer:

Now to the cleaner beer. Its color is straw yellow and topped with a rocky head which retains itself well. The usual suspects of a helles aroma (grass, lemon, hay) set the table for a good drinking experience. Arriving in the mouth in its light body and gentle carbonation are a slight citrus note with fresh hay and wild grass. Few things say "welcome to Munich" better that a fresh and appealing helles lager.

Thanks to Momar42 for this German curiosity! 500ml bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a very pale straw color featuring excellent carbonation. The head is a two finger whIte color. It fades at a moderate clip, and leaves nice patches of lacing going down.

S: It's a typical aroma for the style - lots of grassy hops, unobtrusive malts, and some diacetyl. I'd say the latter is a bit more prevalent than I'd like, but a fairly good aroma otherwise.

T: At first, the buttery diacetyl presence (just like in the aroma) comes fairly strongly. Luckily, it smooths out into nicely crisp, hoppy bite on the finish. Some slight fruitiness will try to build up, as well. Not ultra interesting, but about what I expect from the style.

M: Light and crisp to be sure - but sadly the finish and aftertaste isn't as dry as I'd like here. For that reason, it lacks great drinkability. It's got good carbonation, at least.

O: Not bad. I'd say this one is a notch or two below the best of the style, though. Worth a try.
